Please note that our application process has changed since we paused applications in response to the Covid-19 health emergency. Those who applied previously will need to complete a new application form.
We will now be recruiting over two cohorts. In the first cohort, we will be looking for 18-month resident assistant directors for Contact Theatre, Manchester and Birmingham Rep. The applications for the second cohort will open in 2021.
To apply for a residency, please complete the following forms and return them to email@example.com :
Please note: large print, BSL, screen reader friendly versions of this form, and a version based on the British Dyslexia Association Style Guide are available on a further tab.
Deadline for applications is noon on Monday 12 October 2020.
Prior to the application deadline, there will be a Q&A session to answer any questions you may have about completing your application form or more generally about the RTYDS 18-Month Residency. This will be held on Tuesday 22 September 2020. Please follow RTYDS social media or sign up to our mailing list for further details. A recording will be made available, which will be BSL interpreted and a transcript can also be provided.
In addition, we will be offering pre-interview workshops for shortlisted directors/theatre makers to prepare for their interviews.
RTYDS will endeavour to proceed with the recruitment timeline as laid out in the guidelines, application and recruitment process detailed here for the 18-Month Residences. However, due to the wide-ranging effect of COVID-19 on the theatre industry in general and the participating theatres specifically, we cannot at this time guarantee we will not need to pause, postpone or halt the process. We will monitor the situation closely and respond as necessary to the ongoing and developing government guidance. This may result in changes in circumstance for RTYDS and the partner theatres. We will keep all applicants fully aware of any changes and our endeavours to deliver the timeline as laid out.
