The Almeida Theatre is an equal opportunities employer and our aim is to create a diverse and inclusive working environment which reflects the city we live and work in and the communities and audiences that we engage with. The recruitment process is open to all, but we particularly encourage applications from people of colour and D/deaf & disabled candidates as these groups are currently underrepresented at the Almeida.
If you have any questions about how we recruit please see our FAQs here.
