CURRENT EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY:
Area Manager – Drama Teacher (Drama, Performing Arts or Acting Teachers)
A unique opportunity for a self-motivated person to join our entrepreneurial, fun & supportive team in a part time or full time management position.
0.7 Part Time or Full Time position.
WHAT WE DO
Super Speak is an exciting and engaging public speaking & drama program that helps children aged 6 – 15 develop greater confidence, communication skills and creativity for life. More than 34,000 students have attended Super Speak classes across 15 venues in Melbourne since 2006.
We have an exciting role for an additional Area Manager to join our team in a 0.7 permanent part time or full-time employment position.
You will report to the principal and be responsible for either our North/West Melbourne territory or our South/East Melbourne territory which typically has between 550-600 students each.
Time is split between attending & managing venues across your territory and working from our office which is based in Malvern East.
The role consists of
- Venue & class operational management
- Teacher management
- Enrolment management
- Teacher & parent communication
- Office support & general administration
- Venue hire management
WHO YOU ARE
You have a strong background in teaching or performing arts and have gravitated toward education because you believe in the power of speech & drama to positively affect the lives of young people.
You could be a junior performer or teacher with a can-do attitude, smarts and a natural aptitude for teaching; or you may be an experienced teacher exploring a change outside the schooling system into a more entrepreneurial, hands-on and practical role; or you could be an actor looking for a change away from acting into a more stable employment opportunity. If you are an actor/performer looking to change towards more stable employment, you will need to be able to commit to the role with a minimum 3 year view, otherwise this role will not be suitable for you.
You must have the ability to be flexible with when you work each week to reflect the needs of your territory. For example, for weeks that you need to be at your venues, you will spend more time attending your venues in the afternoon/evenings and will work less time in the office. For other weeks when your venues are settled, you will spend more time in the office during business hours and less time at the venues. You will be comfortable being “hands-on” to ensure your territory is operating smoothly and that your teachers are well supported. You will travel between your venues within your territory as required.
