Thank you for your interest in working with us. We believe that theatre belongs to everyone and we are committed to making sure that everyone has the opportunity to be involved. We want to work with people from diverse backgrounds, who will bring different skills and experiences to help us to achieve this

Equal Opportunities

Nottingham Playhouse is committed to a policy of Equality of Opportunity and creating a workforce representative of the diverse communities we work with. 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 from Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic and Disabled people and those who meet the minimum criteria on the job person specification will be guaranteed an interview.

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.
