COLAB Theatre - Immersive Theatre - Action Theatre

Exceptional Immersive Theatre

CoLab is an Immersive Theatre Company that specialises in site specific immersive performances. 

Accumulating many different theatre companies, CoLab strives to bring unity to the immersive theatre industry and create better theatre for the future. 





COLAB Theatre is looking for a full time Venue/Bar Manager for the COLAB Factory, our residency space in London Bridge.


COLAB Factory is a space where new and exciting ideas are created, explored and experienced. This is a place for immersive theatre, unconventional theatre, dining experiences, street games, board games and everything else in between. It’s an incredible space that we want to make as exciting as possible and the bar manager will be central to that idea.



The role is full time so we are looking for a dedicated individual who is adaptable and experienced in managing venues from all departments.


The Venue/Bar Manager will be in charge of everything in regards to the operations of the bar but also be in charge of the building as a whole:


Bar Responsibilities

-Opening and Closing the venue.

-Stock checks and restocks.

-Till management.

-Organisation of waste collection.

-Staffing the bar.

-Cleaning schedules.

-Organising security.


Venue Responsibilities

-Being the main point of contact for visiting companies.

-Ensuring the risk assessment is abided by and ensure that all productions are operating safely and do not impeach on the safety of the venue.

-Risk Assessments for the building as a whole as it adapts and changes for shows.

-Electrics, gas and water meter readings etc. when needed.

-Receiving packages when necessary.



There will be very busy times and very quiet times as shows come and go so a flexible schedule is essential. It is important to note that even though this is a full time job, the hours are unusual and more often in the evenings and weekends than weekdays. We are looking for someone to take ownership and pride in the venue, making it their own space that they enjoy being in.


It’s a challenging job but one that is very manageable. The bar manager will also have access to the space throughout the day so anyone that’s a writer or has a theatre company that needs rehearsal space etc. will be a very good candidate.


Bar experience and/or venue management is preferable.


Personal License is preferable however if you do not have one, the company are open to paying for training.


Dates of engagement:

5th June 2017 onwards.

Probation period of 2 weeks.

Producer Wanted


After four sell out productions over the last two years COLAB are finally embarking on the most challenging prospect yet – challenging the bard himself.

COLAB aim to create worlds that completely take audiences back, forward and sideways in time. We don’t want our audiences to visit our experiences; we want them to live them.

The producer will be in charge of the entire production. The candidate chosen will be the driving force behind the production and they will be in charge of everything but the physical production.



The producer is a vital role within the company. They will be given the management of a budget to deal with marketing, advertising, press and ticketing. The producer will also be responsible for the general management of the company, including creative team hiring and castings, contracting, licensing and scheduling.

They will be working alongside artistic director Bertie Watkins in realising the vision of the production.



This role will be very demanding and will require a large amount of dedication. We’re looking for a very driven and optimistic individual that is extremely good at problem solving. An understanding and enthusiasm in immersive theatre is preferable but more importantly, an attitude and ability to keep positive in stressful environments.

The most important requirement is scope – the ability to be able to pull out, see the production as a whole and see what needs to be addressed as a priority.

As a minimum, you must have produced at least one fringe or off west end production from beginning to end as a producer or general manager – assistant producers are welcome if they have a large amount of experience working on at least two productions.

Immersive, interactive, site-specific production experience is very preferable. 

Experience in working within budget, contracting, scheduling and most importantly marketing is vital.

Understanding of physical production is preferable. 


Hours are unfixed, this is not a full time role.
