Berk’s Nest Street Team Manager 2018 - Application Form
Thanks for wanting to join the Berk's Nest team this year. We value the people we work with, treat them well and pay them fairly, and make sure everyone has a brilliant time. Hopefully this application form isn’t too complicated, but if you have any questions or problems do get in touch at

Our street team manager is responsible for overseeing the entire flyering team (usually around 10-14 people), and delivering brilliant audience numbers. They're supported in this by everyone else on the team, and our previous STM will be on hand in the run up to the Fringe to train you up and give you as much advice and guidance as possible.

Role responsibilities include (but are not limited to):
- Managing the street team: organising all rotas; amending rotas in response to show sales & acts' requests; making sure all of the street team get a day off and aren't overworked (essential); making sure everyone on the team is happy and dealing with any problems when they're not; recruiting any further flyerers during the Fringe if needed; helping the street team invoice for their work.
- Recruiting the street team: along with the Company Director, you'll help to bring together this year's team, including helping with interviews and training up the team briefly before the first day of the Fringe.
- Co-ordinating flyer & poster flashers: Designing flashers (bits of paper stapled onto flyers that shout about reviews); making sure new reviews are included as soon as possible; sending designs to printers; collecting orders
- Helping in the initial set-up from July 28th - Aug 1st: moving all print materials around so everything is in the right place (between venues & the Berk's HQ); co-ordinating postering around Edinburgh; organising the welcome/kick-off drinks for the flyering team and acts to meet each other

Role details:
- Responsible to: Company Director (Owen Donovan)
- Pay: £1,500
- Accommodation is provided in centrally located flat (living with the company's producers)
- Dates: July 28th - August 26th. Some work will be required in advance of the festival, namely meeting our previous STM for a half day of training, and speaking (either in person or via phone) to all of our acts to put together an initial flyering plan, but this is flexible around you.
- Hours: Flexible - as long as the work gets done and sales are not awful, we're more than happy for you to decide exactly how you use your time. The Fringe is an unusual workplace with no set hours, and w have shows running for about 9 hours of the day, but we want our team to enjoy themselves, see shows that they want to see, and have their own time to relax and get away form it all.
- Benefits: Venue passes for Pleasance & Underbelly, tickets to shows, merchandise & anything else we can get our hands on.
