Edinburgh Fringe 2022 - Venue Stage Managers

Venue Stage Managers Managers – Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2022

Fixed Term Contract: 31st July – 30th August 2022

Underbelly are looking for Venue Stage Managers for our larger venues at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2022.

Job Purpose

Alongside a fellow Stage Manager in the venue and lead by a Technical Manager, duties include handling technical rehearsals, keeping the venue running to time, working on turnarounds with companies to ensure everything runs smoothly, and keeping the venue in good and tidy order. Previous experience in other festival venue roles is a great advantage.

Given that the role is part of a close-knit venue team working hard through the festival we are looking for positive and friendly candidates who will support the others and get involved in whatever tasks will help everyone else out. The work is not limited to just stage management, since the whole crew operates as a team.


Dates of work are approximately 31st July – 30th August 2022.

Rate of pay depends on experience and venue but starts at £11.50/hr.  You will be working on a rota with another Venue Stage Manager. You will get a minimum of 2 days off but should be available to work for the entire period.

Underbelly is committed to reducing its environmental impacts in its everyday operations. We are also committed to maintaining the open-access policy of Underbelly. We are an equal opportunity employer and welcome applications from all sectors of the community. We expect employees to support these commitments and to assist in their realisation.

We regret that we will only be able to reply to shortlisted candidates.
