The Royal Opera House stages over 500 performances a year and our backstage teams are some of the best theatre craftspeople in the world. We want to give everyone the opportunity to get involved in this creative, exciting and growing industry and we think apprenticeships are great way to get started. An apprenticeship gives you the practical skills and knowledge that will underpin your professional development and access to a network of people who can guide and support you during your career.

This year with the generous support of the Derek Butler Trust we will offer a Lighting Apprenticeship on a Fixed-term contract for 2 years (5th September 2016 – August 2018), Full-time (48 hours per week) based in Covent Garden.
