Apprenticeship opportunities at ROH

As part of our innovative scheme to provide apprenticeships across our backstage departments we are pleased to offer the following apprenticeships:

Scenic Carpentry Apprentice

Fixed-term contract for 2 years (September 2019 – August 2021)

Scenic Metalwork Apprentice

Fixed-term contract for 3 years (September 2019 – August 2022)

All apprenticeships are full-time (40 hours per week) – based in Purfleet, Essex

The ROH stages over 500 performances a year and our backstage teams are some of the best theatre craftspeople in the world.

We want to give everyone the opportunity to get involved in this creative, exciting and growing industry and we think apprenticeships are great way to get started.

An apprenticeship gives you the practical skills and knowledge that will underpin your professional development and access to a network of people who can guide and support you during your career.

What our apprentices say:

“I found the fact that I was able to learn and achieve a qualification whilst being paid was very useful. Also being able to learn on-site experience is extremely important. I feel it’s more than just the qualification.”

Applicants must be 18 years old or over on 3rd September 2019 and must have work authorisation for the UK. Full job descriptions, details on how to apply and online application forms are available on our website:

Closing date for applications: 8.00am, Monday 3rd June 2019.
