PURPOSE OF THE POSITION:
The Electrics Department Head position provides leadership and training for the electricians of performances in the Capitol and 4th Street Theatres. The Electrics Department Head also acts as a Capitol Theatre Committee (CTC) liaison with touring crews and renters of these facilities.
This position reports to the CTC Technical Director. This position works closely in collaboration with outside touring crews and renters. This position oversees all CTC electricians and spotlight operators.
EXPECTATIONS OF THE POSITION:
The Department Head positions are expected to be hands on leaders in their areas of expertise and model the manner and quality of service CTC expects of all of its staff. These positions are “working heads” and are expected to fill the various roles of stage technicians while accomplishing their other duties. As part of a leadership team, the Department Heads work together to oversee all stage technicians in the facility, not only the ones in their departments. Department Heads are expected to teach good work habits and basic stage craft alongside training specific stage technicians in the more detailed aspects of their departments.
LENGTH OF APPOINTMENT:
The Department Head positions are 10 month appointments, starting in September and running through the end of June. Depending on the summer months’ schedules, the appointment can be extended through the end of August at the discretion of the CTC Technical Director. There are no term limits on appointments, and any Department Head can re-apply for the position the following season.
Due to the nature of scheduling the use of rental facilities, there is no set number of hours per week for these positions. Though no guarantees are made, it is expected that the Department Head positions will average 20 hours per week during the season. To help ensure this, Department Heads are given the right of first refusal on all work shifts in their departments up to a max of 40 hours per week. Department Heads may work more than 40 hours per week but lose the right of first refusal on shifts once they have worked 40 hours.
(The essential functions listed below do not reflect all duties that may be assigned to this position. The Technical Director may augment duties, including essential functions, at their discretion.)
