There have never been more opportunities for people looking to build a career in the UK creative industry. There are a huge number of roles available across technical and production, audience and participation, costume and set design, stage management, front of house and operation.

The future is bright, and the creative industries have the potential to drive significant growth over the next decade. By 2022, it’s estimated that more than 300,000 new jobs will have been created in the sector – with skilled backstage and offstage workers at the centre of this growth.
