Vacancies - Aerial Circus Tutor

We are looking for an inspiring freelance Aerial Circus Tutor to assist us in delivering high quality circus tuition as part of the Circus Programme offered at The Higher Space.

Initially this would involve the delivery and management of our junior circus classes (age 6-15yrs) on Monday evenings from 18th September 2017 until the end of school term w/c 9th July 2018. There may well be the potential for more classes, courses or cover work within Wired Aerial Theatre’s Educational Department should this be agreeable between Wired and the successful applicant.

The Higher Space follows a block system which in general, fits within school term times. This means that this teaching contract will have gaps within it at several stages throughout the year.

The ideal candidate would be proactive, inspiring, adaptable and thrive from working within a busy and exciting organisation. We require a professional aerial performer who is eager to pass on their knowledge to students of all ages from young people to professional level, and who would be willing to work with us to potentially develop a wider community of circus stars at all levels in the future.

 

Fee: £25/hour

Hours required: 2 on selected Mondays, 5-7pm

Class breakdown:

Monday – 5-6pm – Junior Hoop

Monday – 6-7pm – Junior Silks

Maximum participants per class: 9

 

Application is by CV and covering letter (no more than 1 page please) to the same address with “Circus Tutor Application" in the subject line. As this role involves working with young people, a current DBS and First Aid certificate will be necessary. We can assist with this should it be required.  Download the full Job Description here.

 

Deadline for applications is THURSDAY 17TH AUGUST 2017

Interviews will be held on WEDNESDAY 13TH SEPTEMBER 2017 at The Higher Space, 10 Cotton St, Liverpool, L3 7DY


We look forward to hearing from you!
