We actively support and encourage people from a variety of backgrounds, experiences and skill sets to join us and help shape what we do. In order to build a workforce that is representative of London’s diversity, we aim to attract a wide range of talent and create an enabling environment where everyone can make their best work and feels a sense of belonging. We are particularly keen to receive applications from people of the Global Majority, LGBTQ+, neurodiverse and disabled candidates. You can read more about our commitment to fair recruitment, belonging, and inclusion here.
We may take positive action, in cases where candidates are equally qualified, to increase the employment of under-represented groups at The Old Vic.
In the event that we ask you to attend the theatre for a conversation and you are struggling financially, we may be able to reimburse you for any reasonable travel costs.
We don’t ask for our applicants to tick a box for any prior convictions at the application stage, to ensure we work to the Fair Chance Recruitment Principles. We are a PiPA (Parents and Carers in Performing Arts) Charter Partner, striving towards creating a more family friendly working environment. The Old Vic is a signatory of the Care Leaver Covenant which aims to provide support for care leavers aged 16–25 to help them to live independently. We are also a Stage Sight Member, committed to making practical changes for a more diverse and representative off-stage workforce.
The Old Vic is proud to be an accredited Living Wage Employer.
