Comic role; in association with fish 4 jobs.

THE Comedy Trust is looking to appoint a freelance creative practitioner to deliver comedy-based workshops to young people on Merseyside

The Comedy Trust runs the annual Liverpool Comedy Festival and has a wide-reaching community and education department.

The appointed practitioner will predominately be required to deliver the Trust's hugely successful Stand Out course for 14 to 18-year-olds.

This is the UK's only six-week course in stand-up for young people.

The successful candidate will have experience of planning, managing and delivering creative arts projects with young people, particularly with the 14-18 age group.

They should have a good knowledge and understanding of educational policies and the national curriculum, together with an understanding of creative practice in schools.

They should also have experience of working with an educational setting, strong communication skills, a full driving licence and own transport and a recent CRB disclosure certificate.

Although experience in professional comedy performance is not essential, candidates must be able to demonstrate a good understanding and interest of this subject and be keen to expand their skills in this area.

The closing date for applicants is midday on Monday, July 30.

Interviews will be held on Thursday, August 2 and the position is due to start in September on a freelance basis.

To apply, send your CV and short summary of previous work demonstrating the required skills and experience, and the names and contact details of two referees to: Jenny Liddy, The Comedy Trust, PO Box 1127, Liverpool, L69 3TL.
