Charcoalblue LLP logo - Facebook-be793892

Name: Charlotte Kenny



Location: Melbourne

Do you have a passion for theatre, live performance and venue design? We’d love to hear from you!

We are seeking a talented and self-motivated person from the performing arts, live events or architectural industries in the early stages of their career to join our Australian consultant team as a Theatre Designer, working on the most innovative performing arts construction projects in the world.

Founded in London in 2004, Charcoalblue is the world’s leading multi-national theatre, acoustic, and digital design consultancy with studios across the UK, US, and Melbourne. Our team works flexibly, from our studios and from home, to effectively service our international project portfolio across multiple time zones. As consultants, we act as the conduit between our performing arts/event space clients and the architectural and construction industries, translating clients’ briefs into built reality. Our global Theatre Consultancy team includes theatre designers, stage lighting designers, audiovisual designers, stage engineering designers, and acousticians to deliver holistic, client-focused design solutions, all of which share a focus on innovative and inspired solutions to a client’s brief.

As a Theatre Designer, you will be instrumental in conceiving, guiding and constructing creative spaces for the performing arts from the early concept stages through to completion and commissioning on site, and have a key role within the project team in defining our venues’ look and feel, shape, form, and architectural integration.


As theatre consultancy is a specialised field, we will provide training as needed – all we ask from you is some relevant experience in at least one of the performing arts or architectural fields, and most importantly passion for the performing arts and an eagerness to learn.
