We are proud to offer applicants an opportunity to work with us and will ensure that all applications are dealt with equally and in line with our Equal Opportunities Policy. Our selection and recruitment process is structured to enable heads of departments to select the most suitable candidates to join the Trust. 

Advertised Vacancies
Targeted recruitment will be carried out in the press and/or on the internet for all vacant positions. Every vacancy is advertised on this page. The advert will give all the details required about how to apply and state a deadline for completed applications.  Please ensure all documents you send clearly state which position you are applying for.
Speculative CVs
All vacancies will be advertised and we do not accept speculative CVs.  If there are no vacant positions listed on this website, then we are not recruiting.  There are a number of departments (Customer Services / Box Office / Stage / Electrics / Wardrobe) for which casual staff recruitment is ongoing throughout the year and we will place notices on this page should we be requiring new staff, but if there is no ad, then we are not recruiting.  Full details on how to apply for positions in these departments will be noted in the job advertisement.

Work Experience/Placements
The Trust is unable to offer work experience placements at this time due to the level of resources available and the volume of such requests.
