Sadly, we’re coming to the end of a fabulous three months with our current university placements Sonia Martins and Charlotte Young who are back to the text books in the new year.

However, this does mean that we’re on the lookout for some more brilliant students who want to learn about how a theatre company works from the inside to join Team PP’s Production and Administration Departments.

Does that sound like you? Great. Here’s some more info on how to get involved…

WHAT WOULD I BE DOING?

You can choose to join either the Administration or Production Department supporting the teams on everything from open auditions and literary submissions to marketing meetings and play text proofing.

Have a look at the sample job descriptions on our website for more of an idea but do bear in mind that these can be flexible depending on your particular fields of interest and Paines Plough’s current needs.

“There’s not really a better place to be… They gave me a platform where I could grow as an artist and a theatre-maker, and I wouldn’t be going to New York without them.”
