Join our talented team who deliver the program to children aged 6-14 across 15+ Melbourne venues each week and across Australia online.


We have an exciting opportunity for an additional member to join our team in the role of Area Manager & Drama Teacher.

This role would suit either a junior or experienced person with experience in public speaking, drama, speech and drama or performing arts.

The contact hours will be permanent part time or full time, whatever suits the successful candidate.

You will report to the principal and be responsible for teaching in & management of either our South/East, North/East or North/West Melbourne territory which consist of approximately 6-8 venues each (whichever suits your location).

Time is split between teaching and supporting/managing venues and teachers across your territory and working from our Malvern East office.

This is a hands-on & varied role with opportunity to add value including taking part in the strategic development of Super Speak as we continue to grow.

The role consists of:

  • Teaching
  • Venue & class operational support
  • Office administration & support
  • Teacher support & development
  • Enrolment management
  • Teacher & parent communication


You are passionate in teaching either drama, speech & drama, primary education, performing arts or public speaking to children.

You may be one of the below:

  • someone with a natural aptitude for teaching with experience attending drama, performing arts or speech & drama classes through your teen years; or
  • someone with experience teaching children aged 6-14; or
  • a performer or actor with teaching experience looking to make a change away from performing and into a more stable long term employment opportunity; or
  • a primary teacher, secondary teacher or drama / performing arts teacher seeking a change away from the schooling system into a more entrepreneurial, hands-on and practical role

You will be flexible with when you work each week to reflect the needs of your venues. 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 on Saturdays and will work less time in the office. For other weeks when your venues & teachers 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 venues are operating smoothly and that your teachers are well supported. You will travel between your venues within your territory as required.

As well as the above, you will be someone that:

  • has a fun, professional nature and able to relate well to children and parents
  • has excellent verbal communication skills, organizational skills and a “can do” attitude
  • is self motivated with a history of exceeding expectations
  • prides themselves on their work ethic, reliability and punctuality
  • has a current Work With Children Check card or a VIT registration
  • has a reliable car & driver’s license
  • has a proficiency in Microsoft word & a professional phone manner

It is desirable but not essential for you to have a tertiary qualification (either arts, performance or teaching) or an equivalent professional experience or significant other training – ie. in speech & drama, acting or drama schooling throughout teen years.

Please only apply for this role if you have the view of being able to consistently work at Super Speak for at least 3 years.
