Registration Supervisor (fixed term)

£420 per week (35 hours).  
Closing date:
5 December 2022


The idea at the heart of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe is simple: anyone with a desire to perform and a venue willing to host them is welcome. No individual or committee determines who can or cannot perform at the Fringe. 

It all began in 1947 with eight companies – six of them from Scotland – taking a risk, turning up uninvited and performing on the ‘fringe’ of the inaugural Edinburgh International Festival. Over 70 years later, the Fringe has grown to become the greatest celebration of arts and culture on the planet, second only to the Olympics in terms of global ticketed events. In 2019, over 30,000 artists put on 3,841 shows in 323 venues right across Edinburgh. 

The Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society is the charity that was established by artists to act as the custodian of the Fringe. We exist to support, advise and encourage everyone who wants to participate; provide information and assistance to audiences; and celebrate the Fringe and what it stands for all over the world. 

About the Role

We are committed to ensuring that the Fringe deepens its roots within the city, working with city communities and the education sector to address isolation and cultural exclusion. We are also keen to strengthen the Fringe’s connections across the world to ensure this festival provides a global platform for creativity and freedom of expression, and the best global showcase for artists from Scotland and all over the UK.  

We are seeking to appoint an experienced individual to the position of Registration Supervisor, who will report to and work closely with the Venues and Registration Manager. 

This role sits within the Artist Services team and exists to assist artists and street performers in the registration of their shows with the Fringe Society, prepare and proof data (listings information, ticketing information, accessibility information and advertising) for the printed Fringe programme and, ensuring production deadlines are met.
