Curve theatre, run by Leicester Theatre Trust (registered charity number 230708) is a major regional producing theatre in Leicester. Our vision is to have a worldwide reputation for awe inspiring theatre, from the heart of the UK.
Over 750,000 people annually engage with Curve through performances and projects at our home in Leicester, across the UK and internationally. Under the leadership of Chief Executive Chris Stafford and Artistic Director Nikolai Foster, Curve has developed a reputation for producing, programming and touring a bold and diverse programme of musicals, plays, new work, dance and opera. All of this presented alongside a dynamic mix of community engagement, artist development and learning programmes, which firmly places audiences, artists and communities at the heart of everything we do.
As a registered charity, we are driven to positively contribute to our community through access to the arts. This focus generates a level of creativity, passion and enthusiasm within our team and is reflected in the way we work and the results they produce. As a team, our values are Creativity, Community, Respect, Trust and to Inspire through everything we do.
Developing young talent is central to the work we do at Curve, and for secondary school and University students considering a career in the arts, we are pleased to offer a range of regular opportunities to take part in work experience placements at our unique theatre. These range from one-day career days to one-week placements across all of our departments, where participants will discover the different areas and functions of a leading producing theatre.
In line with government guidance around the COVID-19 pandemic, our team are working remotely and therefore we are unable to offer work experience placements at this time. Information regarding future placement opportunities will be released in due course.
As one of the UK’s leading producing theatres, Curve strives to attract and appoint the very best talent to join our team.
With over 100 people working in our building, we offer a variety of career opportunities across all departments including our artistic, communications, development, events & catering, facilities, finance, hospitality, human resources, ICT, operations, technical and box office teams.
We are committed to equality of opportunity and diversity of approach, welcoming applications from every sector reflecting the diversity of our communities. We are committed to managing a fair and equitable recruitment and selection process.
