About our jobs
We are the largest children’s theatre in the UK, specialising in developing new devised and written shows alongside adaptations of classic texts, offering an innovative and inspiring year-round programme of sector-leading theatre for children.
Our purpose-built home at London Bridge (opened in 2005) is a creative and welcoming space designed with and for young people. Our building comprises two theatre spaces (Weston Theatre at around 290-seat capacity and Clore Theatre at around 90-seat capacity) plus two rehearsal spaces, along with backstage set, prop and costume facilities. We produce and present a thrilling and varied programme, exploring stories, ideas and themes that enrich and broaden children’s view of the world. We welcome 65,000 families and schools every year, subsidising around 30% of tickets to schools and community groups.
We maintain a strong commitment to representing diversity in our audiences, as well as on our stages, and we prioritise accessibility and inclusion across our organisation.
We are committed to being an equal opportunities employer and actively encourage people from a wide variety of backgrounds, experience and skills to join us and influence and develop our working practice. We particularly encourage applications from Black candidates, and candidates from diverse ethnic backgrounds, and those who self-identify as disabled.
Work experience, work placements and shadowing
As a theatre for 0-13 year olds, we have focused our career pathways work for this age group through projects with partner schools and community groups. We don’t take requests for work experience for young people aged 14+ and encourage anyone that age to join a local youth theatre and to go to watch theatre when they can. We recommend Get Into Theatre to find out more about careers in theatre and Theatre Craft for anyone interested in offstage roles.
