Applicants will be considered for employment regardless of their ethnicity, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disability or age. We are a Disability Confident employer, recruiting and supporting disabled people in the workplace.

We have identified that our workforce is currently under representative of certain communities and are taking positive action to change this through the recruitment process. We actively encourage applicants who are Disabled, Black, Asian, Brown, dual heritage, indigenous to the global south and/or have been racialised as ethnic minorities. Applicants who identify as from the Global Ethnic Majority and/or as Disabled who meet the minimum criteria on the job person specification will be guaranteed an interview for workforce vacancies.

A safe and inclusive environment

We are committed to making a safe and inclusive environment to work in, challenging prejudices and discrimination. We have signed up to the Time To Change employer pledge to change the conversations around mental health, as well as the Old Vic Guardians initiative and the UK Theatre/SOLT Ten Principles, which encourage safer and more supportive working practices in theatre.

We also welcome proposals to consider for flexible working on hiring. We are part of the Parents in Performing Arts (PiPA) campaign and welcome applications from people who have caring responsibilities and anyone looking for a positive work/life balance.
