London Office Placements

A unique placement that provides hands-on training and experience in the bustling West End, assistant award-winning commercial producers in their London offices.

How does it work?

Successful candidates will be placed in a producers pool and will have opportunity to apply for 2x6 month contracts in commercial producing offices across the year. There is no guarantee of employment but all members of the pool will received a free place on the New Producers workshop if they haven't participated already as well as other Stage One training. If awarded a placement, the trainee producer is involved in all aspects of production and ideally will work on two or more shows opening in the West End or going out on tour.

"My time at English Touring Theatre as part of the Stage One Producer Placement scheme has been life-changing and career-altering.
Whilst the placement has provided an unforgettable experience producing small to mid-size tours with such a brilliant team, it has also been an amazing source of confidence that has opened my eyes to unexpected pathways within the theatre that I would like to explore.”
