Work Experience

Working at CFT

Chichester Festival Theatre work experience opportunities are designed to support individuals choosing a career in theatre, those exploring if theatre is right for them, or students taking part in school, college, or university placements.

We are unique in offering placements across the year, providing opportunities for individuals aged 15+ to experience the busy environment of a renowned theatre.

Each placement is different, depending on the time of year and department chosen. Some opportunities mix administrative and practical tasks, whilst others are focused on gaining an understanding of technical or production skills. All placements are voluntary, and usually offered across one week.

Please note: We receive a very high volume of applications and are keen to ensure each placement is meaningful and enjoyable. We receive more requests than available placements, so unfortunately not all applications will be successful.

Before submitting an online application, please carefully read our Work Experience pack.
