Job Vacancies


Arcola Theatre is a charity, enabling thousands of people to make and see theatre every year. If you would like to volunteer your time to help us, please send a cover letter and CV to the appropriate department:

Please note: We receive a very high volume of interest and regret that we cannot respond to all individually.

Work Experience

We offer one-week work experience placements to secondary school pupils in Years 9 – 13 through Inspire! Education and Business Partnership (Hackney Secondary Schools only).

All of our placements are admin-based within our Participation Department, with opportunities to observe work in the theatre when possible, and have an emphasis on learning about the running of a theatre.

To take part, ask your school careers or work experience teacher if your school works with Inspire!

Unfortunately we are unable to support work experience for students who do not attend secondary school in Hackney.
