Work one 24.5-hour shift per week, with one on-call day, earning £335/week plus up to £287 extra for working on-call shifts, with additional overtime available.

Embrace this opportunity to impact an exciting life, support me in high-profile projects, and travel across the UK and Europe. Be part of a fabulous team. Be one of the reasons I can succeed.

Care, Access and Support Worker*

Fee: £150 per day

Locations: London, Manchester, Bristol (though we are open to hearing from anyone in the UK)

*Please note we do not have any active opportunities – we are creating a database of individuals we can call on for opportunities as they arise.

CRIPtic Arts is looking to build a database of UK-based Care, Access and Support Workers to work with our Artistic Director Jamie Hale, and any other disabled creatives on our creative projects. Your role would be to enable the team member to perform to their maximum potential by reducing and eliminating the barriers they face and helping them manage their support needs in a flexible manner – whether they’re in a writers room, performing on stage, or directing a show.

As CRIPtic puts on work nationally, we often need additional care, access and support work both in London and while based at other theatres. This role may encompass a range of tasks to include creative access support but also manual handling and the provision of personal and medical care.

This is a great opportunity for you to be in exciting artistic spaces, supporting people whether they’re performing, directing, or scriptwriting, including at major artistic venues and with high-level contacts.

We are currently prioritising searching for London, Manchester and Bristol-based individuals but will expand this as work comes up in other locations.
