The Role

As the oldest drama school in the UK, founded in 1861 as the London Academy of Music, LAMDA is a world-leading conservatoire based in the heart of London, offering exceptional vocational training to actors, stage managers, technicians, directors and designers, regardless of their background or economic circumstances. LAMDA is also an Ofqual-registered awarding body, offering world-renowned qualifications in communication and performance and inspiring the next generation of confident communicators through qualifications in performance and communication.

At the heart of LAMDA’s approach is a commitment to the ensemble, stressing the importance of collaboration to achieve excellence. LAMDA nurtures every student’s unique talents to give them the tools they need to become independent, creative artists and technicians, along with all the help and guidance they need to transition and make their mark within the creative and performing arts industry. Alongside this, LAMDA is committed to ensuring that its training is accessible to all and has a number of substantial measures in place to widen access to Higher Education and is committed to the creation of pathways to our training for those from the Global Majority, those from low socio-economic backgrounds and care leavers.

LAMDA is now seeking candidates for the role of Head of Actor Training. This person will lead, organise and develop the work of all acting courses, building and maintaining effective working relationships with other senior managers, heads of department, senior tutors and other LAMDA staff; and ensuring exacting professional standards in all aspects of the work.

Candidates will bring knowledge and professional experience of contemporary theatre practice and acting methodology and pedagogy, as well as experience of managing high performing teams, ideally from an educational context. Candidates will also understand the requirements of performance and the needs of the professional performer, and how to translate this into the delivery of conservatoire training. With very strong communication, interpersonal and organisational skills, ideal candidates will be empathetic to students needs and align with and be able to contribute to LAMDA’s artistic vision and teaching methodology.

Equality, diversity and inclusion are essential values at LAMDA and we are committed to promoting equality of opportunity for all staff and job applicants.
