Experience Opportunity

Technical Theatre Apprenticeship

We are now recruiting for Technical Theatre Apprentices to join us from September 2019, to work in our busy Production department. This opportunity provides experience, skills, knowledge and formal training whilst working on a range of professional theatre productions across CFT’s two stages and in other spaces.

These posts are aimed at practically-minded, energetic and committed people who are passionate about theatre and the live arts. All successful apprentices will be given mentoring and assessment to help you grow professionally in a supportive environment.

Technical Apprenticeships at CFT are hands-on working roles, learning lighting, sound, stage, automation and video skills for a fixed period. The roles lead to a nationally recognised Level 3 Creative Venue Technician Apprenticeship qualification, whilst working with some of the most eminent industry professionals in the country. As part of your training you will also achieve the ABTT Bronze Award and the BECTU CRISP qualification- both industry recognised qualifications.

The apprenticeship will provide a strong all-round skill set giving the opportunity to progress with a career in theatre or live events. If this is of interest, we encourage you to apply for one of the positions.

Please note this post is not suitable for graduates from Technical Theatre Degree courses.
