Northern Stage is a theatre where ideas meet, and futures change. Every year thousands come to create and share unique live experiences at Northern Stage. Their home in Newcastle is an inspirational and creative place where everyone is welcome. Whether it is on one of their three stages (with a combined 700 seats), or any place that creativity is to be found, they work with an ever-expanding network of talented people to share the most entertaining, surprising and imaginative stories from around the world. They champion high quality mid-scale theatre production and touring, backed up by our industry-leading facilities and a dash of Geordie genius. They reach beyond the ordinary, every time.
Their promise is to be a place where people of all backgrounds can come together to change the world around us. Northern Stage is an equal opportunities employer and their goal is to create a diverse and inclusive working environment which reflects the city they live and work in and the communities and audiences they engage with. Their colleagues have unique and varied lived experience which positively informs and influences the work they make. Their recruitment process is open to all, and they particularly encourage applications from people of the global majority and D/deaf & disabled people, who are currently under-represented in our sector.
