We are looking for four 18-25 year olds to join our busy and successful theatre as part of our Young Vic Young Associates scheme.
Based on The Cut in Waterloo, we produce new plays, classics, musicals, adaptations of books, short films, digital projects and more. For many years the theatre has been synonymous with staging international works created by some of the world’s finest directors, performers and creatives; productions that say much about the world we live in.We attract a hugely diverse range of people to our theatre – as audience members and as part of our show teams.
The Young Vic Young Associates will be an integral part of the theatre. Each Young Associate will get an overall understanding of how their chosen department works and will get an opportunity to work on plays we produce, learning about how a production comes together, how to manage a venue, raise money, employ the creative teams, manage budgets and work with schools, young people and the local community.
You may have had some experience of your chosen field through school/college or youth theatre, or through making your own work. You will have a strong desire to learn and develop the skills you need to work in the arts.
All applicants must live in the London Borough of Southwark. Relevant training and / or formal education are not essential. 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.
Salary: £14,428 for 9 months (£19,237 pro rata)
Apply by: 12pm, Monday 11 February
