We are committed to providing equal opportunities for everyone regardless of their background. We are particularly keen to receive applications from those who identify as from marginalised backgrounds based on age, racialisation, gender identity or sexuality, disability or long term health condition, pregnancy, maternity or marital status, religion or belief, and class background or class identity.

We acknowledge that people from certain backgrounds are under-represented in the arts sector and we therefore encourage applications from all sectors of the community including those with more diverse backgrounds.

As a Disability Confident Leader, we guarantee to interview all disabled* applicants who meet the minimum criteria for the vacancy. Please indicate you are d/Deaf or disabled in your application so that you can be interviewed if you meet the minimum criteria.
