    Our Workshop needs you!

    West Yorkshire Playhouse is going through one of the most exciting periods in its history. Last year 352,000 people bought tickets to see Playhouse shows – 154,000 of these were in other theatres all around the UK. In our spaces here in Leeds we presented 61 shows across 512 performances, and additionally our work was seen in 60 other theatres with 319 performances around the UK and Ireland – from our production of ‘Beryl’ selling out the 100 seat Broadbent Theatre in deepest Lincolnshire, to our co-production of ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’ selling 32,000 tickets at the Mayflower in Southampton. Our shows played everywhere from Edinburgh to Dublin and from Settle to Southampton; from shows travelling in a single transit van to shows traveling in 7 articulated trucks.

    If this isn’t enough, we are also about to undertake a £15m capital redevelopment to turn the Playhouse into a truly 21st Century theatre.

    If you have practical experience in set construction, carpentry or metalwork and experience of working in a theatre or creative organisation we would love to hear from you. If you have experience of workshop team management and planning responsibility to department head level then we would like to hear from you. We are looking for enthusiastic people to join a wonderful organisation. We need your ideas and energy to work alongside inspiring creatives to bring our vision to the stage.

    We have roles available at all levels with salaries dependant on experience – please contact us at recruitment@wyp.org.uk or 0113 213 7238 if you would like to know more. Send in a cv and covering letter stating your interest by end of July, and we will be in touch.
