We believe that representation matters; diversity of identity, of perspective, of lived experience enriches our work and our lives. We recognise that the Donmar and the wider theatre industry is not representative of contemporary society in terms of workforce, artists and audience. We particularly encourage applications from those who are currently under-represented both at the Donmar and more widely in the industry, and specifically from D/deaf or disabled, or neurodivergent applicants and applicants who experience barriers and inequity due to ethnicity, gender identity and/or socio-economic background.
We are an active member of PIPA and a Disability Confident employer. All disabled candidates who demonstrate that they meet the minimum criteria will be invited for an interview.
