Why West End in Schools?

Every child’s imagination should be inspired by the arts.

West End in Schools' mission is to use the skills of the professional theatre to provide highly creative cultural experiences for children which they will remember for ever.

The role

You will get to know our customers, our range of work, and our processes in detail.

The majority of communication with our customer and prospective customer schools is by email and telephone, and much of your time will be spent dealing with schools. In this context you will:

  • Work alongside a team of colleagues to respond to initial enquiries from schools in writing and by telephone.

  • Have particular responsibility for helping the schools who have already booked finalise the details of our visit to them. This makes a big difference in ensuring a successful visit.

  • Handling invoice queries from schools, banking cheques and recording this in our Xero bookkeeping software. Bookkeeping training will be provided - you just need to be organised and comfortable with figures.

In addition to your work with schools, our team of over 100 actors, dancers and facilitators creates admin too! We try to put in place simple systems to structure this work wherever possible, and work could include:

  • DBS checks for actors, dancers and drama facilitators.

  • Teaching actors to send expenses claims correctly, and processing their expenses.

  • Helping with arrangements for rehearsals and training sessions.

You will get a fascinating insight in to the worlds of theatre and education - and how they interface.
