Further information

The Globe, Stockton-on-Tees is a significant historic ‘super-theatre’ designed by the Newcastle upon Tyne architect, Percy Lindsay Browne. The building’s architectural significance lies within its context as an extremely rare and complete survivor of the super-theatre building type.

A cinema was first erected on the Globe site in 1913. This was rebuilt in 1925 and the present theatre opened in 1935. It is a grade II listed building of truly national importance.

The Globe has been closed for over 20 years since its previous use as a bingo hall ended. The Council has developed a plan to revitalise the building, supporting growth in the evening economy of the town’s High Street.

The new Globe will be able to seat 1,800 people, but it will have a seating/ standing capacity of up to 3,000. The renovation scheme is a multi-million pound investment funded by Stockton Council and the Heritage Lottery Fund’s Heritage Enterprise Scheme.

We are seeking an experienced creative practitioner to lead on a Globe heritage documentation activity. A creative and inspiring individual is required to carry out the documentation of the Stockton Globe restoration and redevelopment, including physical works and design process during construction up to June 2019.

The practitioner will work closely with the Heritage Learning Officer (HLO) and Project Managers (as well as relevant members of The Globe Project Team); and provide on-going support to the team.

We are looking for a practitioner with:
• Solid and extensive experience in photography and film visual recording.
• Experience of training and/ or supporting others in visual recording.
• Outstanding communication skills with the ability to articulate a vision, strategy or idea clearly and concisely with a rigorous eye for detail.
• Ability to self-manage and work as a core part of a team.

We are looking to commission this work in April 2018 for it to be completed by June 2019. Intermediary milestones are:
• Commencement date of contract - April 2018
• Review of programme of activity/ start up meeting – April 2018
• Delivery of agreed documentation programme of activity including training sessions April 2018 – April 2019
• Delivery of mini Globe exhibition, tour & online content April 2019 – June 2019
• Completion by end of June 2019

This is a lump sum capped sum (£4,000 over 18 months) to include volunteer training and support. Fee is inclusive of all expenses e.g. travel, licences, accommodation etc.

Applications should be made via email to sophie.owens@stockton.gov.uk. You are required to complete the Award Questionnaire included in the attached Brief, and provide an up to date CV and a current certificate of Professional Indemnity Insurance.
