Job Opportunity: Acting Academy Manager

Hosted by Realwheels Theatre

Realwheels theatre is an award-winning theatre company with a mandate to create and produce performances that deepen understanding of the disability experience. We have an exciting opportunity to launch a three year actor training program customized to persons who live with disability. The Realwheels Acting Academy launched in September 2021.

The Manager will bring a unique combination of being able to manage day-to-day operations such as dealing with the instructors and students with a compassionate, solution-focused mindset; while also being a big-picture thinker who is ready and able to build networks and take the Academy to the next stage of development.

**Hours & Location: **The Academy Manager will work approx 18 hours per week and, while the hours are flexible, it is expected that the majority of the work will be done between M-F 9-6pm. The Manager must be available to work on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 3-6pm throughout the academic year.

Realwheels believes in a flexible work environment and supports individuals doing their best work regardless of the location. While the Manager must be able to occasionally meet at our office and attend the Academy classes bi-weekly in Vancouver, other work may be done remotely or at our dedicated office space.

The expected start date is September/ October 2022 with funding in place to continue until the end of September 2024 (with the possibility of extension). Realwheels offices close four weeks each year at which time the Manager is encouraged to take time off for rest and rejuvenation.

**Remuneration: **$28 – $32/hour (plus GST as applicable)

Organizations

Realwheels Theatre

Realwheels Theatre creates and produces performances that deepen understanding of the disability experience. We tell stories in which disability itself is not the focus of conflict, but rather forms the landscape upon which universal issues are debated onstage. Our vision is full inclusion and integration of disability both on – and off – Canadian stages; a barrier-free, diverse performing arts world that reflects the real world and all of its people.
