Work experience

We are no longer running short-term work experience placements for students. However, there are still plenty of other ways to get involved with some extraordinary opera experiences via our Learning and Engagement team.

We do however still work with schools through our Open Doors work experience programme. In 2022 for the first time, we entered into a partnership with the Open Doors programme run by East Sussex Careers Hub. The project is a targeted work development scheme that directly meets the needs of schools, young people and Glyndebourne. Our intention is to help expose and open the eyes of young people to the variety of career opportunities in the theatre.
A key objective of the programme is to target those pupils and schools from lower socio-economic backgrounds and therefore schools and young people who wouldn’t ordinarily have a link with us. Through this programme, we also work with SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) schools and young people.

You can learn about the various offstage roles that help to bring Glyndebourne’s operas to life by watching our ‘Meet the Makers’ films. Hear how these experts in their craft came to be doing the work they do.

Apprenticeships and internships

We recognise the importance of developing and nurturing talent within our industry and are therefore excited about offering apprenticeship and internship opportunities. If you are interested in either please look at our vacancies page where they will be advertised. For apprenticeships, we would ask that you have the right to work in the UK and do not have a degree level (or equivalent) qualification.
