Her Majesty’s Theatre operates principally as a venue for hire. We do not produce any of the shows that play here. Consequently, we do not employ the actors, musicians or stage managers who work on productions – these personnel come with the production.
We do employ backstage crew as well as Front of House staff and bar / function staff.
For further information about any specific positions available at HMT or general work within the various departments, please see below.
There are no positions currently available.
All technical staff at Her Majesty’s are employed on a casual basis. We have a substantial roster of staff to call on for productions so available positions are rare.
If you have previous experience working backstage in a lyric theatre and would like to make yourself known to us, please send an email, with a CV or resume attached, to our Production & Capital Works Manager at email@example.com.
Front of House staff are employed on a casual basis, and work is available only when there are performances scheduled. During a season, staff are expected to be available for 4-8 performances each week, although the number of shifts allocated will vary. Staff must be over 18 years of age and be able to work until late at night. Regular availability for Wednesday matinees is a particular asset.
FOH staff are the public face of HMT, and look to the safety, well-being and enjoyment of patrons as well as the smooth running of performances. As such, the highest standards of personal appearance and reliability are vital, as is the ability to work well under pressure as a member of a cohesive team.
Staff may be recruited at various times throughout the year. If you are interested in being considered, please e-mail the Theatre Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org with your CV and a brief cover letter outlining what you see the FOH role as being and why you think you would be suited to the work.
Bar and hospitality staff are employed on a casual basis. Staff must have some previous experience in this area. Availability for Wednesday matinees and weekend evenings is advantageous. All bar and hospitality staff must be aged 18 or over and should have a Responsible Serving of Alcohol certificate.
There are no current vacancies in Food and Beverage Department
The Box Office at Her Majesty’s Theatre is managed by Ticketek and all staff are employed by them. If you have Box Office or ticket selling experience and are looking for employment, please contact Ticketek direct.
Her Majesty’s has a very small administration / management team and positions rarely become available. If we are seeking any administration staff, we will advertise and list the position under the Current Positions Available heading above. Apart from those instances, HMT does not accept unsolicited enquiries for administration positions.
Due to the large number of unsolicited enquiries we receive, it may not always be possible to reply to your correspondence. All enquiries we receive will be read and retained for future reference but you may not hear back immediately if there are no positions available at the time.
