Our culture empowers people to achieve this aim and to collectively, and individually, make a real difference.  

The role

Guildford School of Acting at the University of Surrey is a top UK conservatoire with a vibrant community of performers, creatives, and technicians. Offering undergraduate and postgraduate training, GSA also runs a Junior Conservatoire, a Saturday School, and various short courses.

The Administrator looks after external and internal bookings and supports a wide range of events both on and off campus, monitoring teaching spaces and public areas, ensuring studio facilities are fit for purpose, and they are the first point of contact for all visitors to the GSA building, dealing with post, email, in person and phone enquiries.  

The Administrator also acts as Fire Marshal and a First Aider.
