The Director of Performance (Drama) is central to the artistic planning of the Drama department at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama.

The College is seeking an energetic, experienced individual with an established network of industry contacts who will enjoy working in an institution dedicated to professional training for the theatre, musical theatre, film and television professions within a highly developed, student-focused ethos. The expansion of the film and television industry in Wales over the last fifteen years has provided, and will continue to provide the Acting department with opportunities to advance training in screen acting. The successful candidate will be of the highest calibre and professional integrity, and will make a major contribution to the future of the College and the Drama department’s standing both nationally and internationally.
