Are you a team leader or supervisor looking for your first role in Theatre Management? Would you like the opportunity to gain a qualification while you learn on the job? Does the chance to be part of the reopening of the Theatre Royal Drury Lane excite you?

We are currently recruiting for a Theatre Management Apprentice. Initially gaining experience across all of our venues, the successful candidate will transfer to the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in September 2020 and will be part of its reopening as a re-imagined destination venue and centrepiece of Covent Garden.
