Expressions of Interest: UHT Peer Mentors


Union House Theatre is looking to engage two recent graduates from our community to work as Peer Mentors on our upcoming production of Nora: A Doll’s House. If you loved your time at UHT and want to instil that passion in other people, read on!

Together with UHT’s Artistic Director, Peer Mentors will be responsible for the development and implementation of initiatives to inspire student engagement in the UHT community. They are also attached to the production team for Nora: A Doll’s House and share the responsibility for mentorship of student cast members and creatives.

You are:

  • a recent alumnus in our community (around the last 5 years)
  • an ‘ideas person’ and love making things happen
  • self-motivated and easy to work with
  • energetic and willing to inspire new students
  • have good availability between July and October, including out-of-hours and weekends

EOI process:

Please send a *concise* one-page letter including the following:

Info about you: tell us when you graduated, what you loved about the UHT community, how you engaged in theatre activities during your time at Uni and how this transformed you and helped you grow.

Some ideas: to get a taste for the way you think, please provide a couple of brief examples of activities you might run or could help to facilitate which support new students to engage in theatre on campus.

Your availability: what’s your schedule like? when are you free during July through to October and are you available to attend a selection of Saturday or evening rehearsals (Wed/Thur) throughout Semester 2?

Other info:

Remuneration = $35 per hour with an estimated time commitment of 30 hours across the project.

Where Government Restrictions allow, this work will be delivered in person.

Please include your email address and phone number plus any other relevant information you feel you’d like to share.

Send to UHT Artistic Director, Xanthe Beesley

Deadline: 5pm Wednesday 23rd of June 2021
