A Statement from the Young Vic - 18 March 2020

Following UK government advice, we have now made the difficult decision to postpone our upcoming productions of Orfeus and Conundrum.

We ask you please bear with our small, but brilliant Welcome Team as they deal with booking enquiries.

As a charity, we rely on ticket sales for a substantial portion of our income, and the insecurity ahead is a huge worry for those who work for and with us, as it is for the theatre sector as a whole. Therefore - if you can afford to - please consider donating the price of your ticket, or another amount however large or small, to the Young Vic.


The Young Vic is looking for a talented and experienced individual to be its new Director of Taking Part.

Our work with young people and communities has always been a major part of the Young Vic’s artistic life, and the successful candidate is expected to draw on the deep roots the department has in our local boroughs as well as drive innovation and best practice, raising the profile of the work and the community it serves.

The Taking Part department features significantly within the vision of Artistic Director Kwame Kwei-Armah, and the theatre is seeking a highly collaborative candidate to lead and innovate the programme of work co-created with young people, artists, and the community. The ability to build successful relationships with those from a wide range of backgrounds and with a range of abilities is crucial.

With new strands of work being developed such as YV Unpacked, which focuses on taking high quality art outside the walls of the theatre to places where theatre doesn’t normally happen, this role is an extraordinary, creative opportunity that we hope will attract highly-motivated candidates.

We actively encourage people from a variety of backgrounds with different experiences, skills and stories to join us and influence and develop our working practice. We are particularly keen to hear from people of colour and candidates who self-identify as disabled. All candidates who self-identify as disabled who demonstrate that they meet the essential criteria will be invited for interview. The Young Vic is committed to equality of opportunity for all staff and applications from individuals are encouraged regardless of age, caring responsibilities, disability, gender, gender identity, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief and sexual orientation.

Salary: £44,000-46,000 p.a.

Contract: Full Time. Permanent. Evening and weekend work will be required.

Apply by: 9am on Monday 30 September 2019

Please note first round interviews are likely to be held in week commencing 14 October 2019 with second round shortly after.

Access: We are able to offer support and resources to aid access requirements; please state any access requirements on your application.
