They are responsible for hiring the Fringe Managers. They are also responsible for programming and communicating with the outside companies. They assume operational control of the EUTC for the period June - August for the year they are hired and oversee the EUTC presence at the Fringe. They are usually paid a small sum of money as compensation for the blood, sweat, tears and general loss of mental health. There are occasionally parties to attend.

This is the person responsible for running the building during the fringe. It is normally a job taken by people who have experience of producing and little experience of production. They advertise the building in the run up to the Fringe, chose the shows, appoint the staff and are technically in charge for the fringe. Remember that if your name is on the License when the shit hits the fan you make the decisions and can kick Fringe butt.

The Archivist, is resposible for maintaining records off all EUTC productions. S/he is responsible for collecting all the P&P of each show, taking pictures of builds/dress runs/after-show drunken bashes, etc. This is really helpful to stage managers in later years who may be looking to do something similar to what has gone before as well as giving us stuff to look back on and to show impressionable young freshers of all the amazing things that get built in Bedlam.
