Working at the Almeida


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 are particularly keen to hear from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) and D/deaf and disabled candidates, as these groups are currently underrepresented.
