Inclusive Recruitment Guide

Inclusive Recruitment Guide

As we work towards reopening, the theatre sector is embarking on a huge recruitment drive. This is a unique opportunity to review our recruitment practices and ensure that the workforce we hire to work in our theatres and organisations is inclusive and represents the UK population. 

We have created a new inclusive recruitment guide to direct you to resources to help you write a more inclusive job pack. We have broken down the recruitment process to help you remove bias from your selection processes and offer suggestions on where to post your job ads to reach a wider talent pool.

This guide is short, concise, actions-focused, and highlights examples of best practice from existing resources (with specific page numbers so you can go direct to the relevant points). It also provides organisations and consultants who can assist you with your recruitment.

Please note this is a working document – we have written it to assist the sector in developing its practice. We welcome your feedback: please let us know if we’ve missed anything. Please email
