Work Experience

Our Work Experience programme is currently on pause and unfortunately we are not accepting placements at this time.


What will I do on a placement? 

Work experience takes place within all of our departments as we aim to give you an overview of how a theatre works as a whole. As a result the majority of the placement will be admin-based, so if you are interested in performing or being involved in productions, you may be disappointed as work experience with us will not involve that (we are not a producing house). The work placement will range from office-based duties within our Operations, Box Office and Marketing departments to some technical work with the stage crew.

How long is the work placement?

Placements usually last between 1-2 weeks. This can vary according to the nature of the placement and our availability.

How to apply

To apply, please send a letter or email stating why you would like to carry out your placement in the theatres to Rachel Triggs, Community and Education Manager.  If you are shortlisted, you will be invited to an interview.  

Southend Theatres receives a large number of applications so make sure yours stands out from the crowd!
