Birmingham Hippodrome B5 4TB
A great theatre needs great people. We can only thrive by having the right team on board in a fast-paced, constantly changing, creative workplace.
Birmingham Hippodrome is committed to placing inclusion at the heart of all we do, making it central to our decision making.
Since we opened our doors in 1899, we have existed to enrich the cultural life of our city. We believe arts and culture has the power to bring people, friends and families together, and as we continue to align ourselves to the future ambition of Birmingham, our vision is clear. We are creating a world-class cultural scene for our region with Birmingham Hippodrome centre stage.
As an independent charity, we are proud of our wide-ranging and varied programme of theatre, dance, festivals, education and community activities that help make life-long memories, create opportunities and increase access to the arts for our region's diverse communities.
To achieve our vision, we need people on board who are passionate and committed to take us - and Birmingham - on the next phase of our exciting journey.
