Get Involved: Male Performers

Community Manager –  Supporting Artist Mental Wellbeing (Samwell) Cic

In September 2021, Samwell will be launching a new online platform for female-identifying actors. Subsequently, we are now seeking to engage a male performer who is interested in growing a similar community for male actors. 

This is an opportunity for someone who has a keen interest in mental health, lived experience of the challenges of working in the industry, and an abundance of energy and enthusiasm to be part of an exciting new venture as it develops from the grassroots up. The platform itself will be a subscription service where members can access carefully curated content, receive advice and support from others working in the industry, engage with other members via community forums and attend online courses, webinars, workshops and events geared specifically to their needs as a performer e.g ‘coping with rejection’ and ‘body image.’

Person specification 

We will offer advice and support you in growing the community but essentially are looking for a self-starter who is great at building relationships with others, motivated, willing to get stuck in, proactive, committed and reliable. 

Our intention is that this position will include a salary once the male performer membership begins to grow and/or the funding we are seeking has been secured. Until then we can only promote this exciting opportunity as an unpaid role. We appreciate that this would mean taking a risk but you would be joining a team with huge ambitions and an excellent business model that will always look to reward those that help us achieve our goals. We also fully understand that the initial arrangement may require you to organise the workload around other commitments and would support you to do this. 

What next?

If you would like to apply for the role then send us a short video which shows us why you are the right person for the job. We’re not expecting something professionally produced, we just want a flavour of who you are and what you can bring to the role!
