We’re delighted to announce that we are recruiting for Citz Futures Trainees.

Citz Futures is designed to create paid opportunities to support people to take their first steps into the theatre industry.  Through part-time roles, trainees can gain hands-on experience of working in theatre alongside industry professionals to develop practical skills, knowledge, and networks. 

Traineeships take place over 10 – 12 weeks and trainees then have access to mentoring and signposting support for up to a year to enable them to build on the experience gained through their traineeship and explore further progression pathways. 

The programme aims to contribute to making the theatre industry more diverse, inclusive, and reflective of wider society and is therefore designed for people without significant prior work experience and with experience of homelessness, poverty, and inequity.   

We are currently recruiting two trainees to work in the following departments at Cardboard Citizens: 

Producer Trainee  

The role of a Producer is versatile and exciting!  They have a wide range of responsibilities, from hiring artists and helping them shape their vision, to managing budgets and overseeing timelines to bring productions and projects to life. The role requires creative thinking, problem solving and excellent communication skills. 

Fundraising and Marketing Trainee 

There is a lot of overlap between fundraising, marketing, and communications. These areas all help to engage audiences in an organisation’s work, shape the organisation’s brand and voice, amplify the organisation’s profile, and raise funding for the organisation’s activities. Fundraising, marketing and communications roles require passion for the organisation’s mission, a knack for relationship building, strong reading and writing skills and buckets of creativity.
