Work Placement

Stages, the Grand Opera House’s innovative work experience programme, is open to young people aged 14 – 18 who are seeking work placements organised through school. It aims to provide a period of work placement that will support students in their course of study or further their interest in planning a career in Performing Arts Management.

Placements will last for four days (Tuesday – Friday) and are scheduled to coincide with the relevant week allocated in the successful applicant’s school calendar.

How to Apply

Please download both the information pack and application form, and return completed applications to Una McKeague, Creative Learning Assistant, Grand Opera House, Great Victoria Street, Belfast, BT2 7HR.

Due to the number of requests that we receive for work experience, and in order to make the process fair, we ask that you only send in applications during the appropriate timeframe outlined below.

Application Process
Work placements are available in October & November 2019. Applications should be received by 25 September 2019.

Applicants will be invited to attend a formal interview, and placements will be awarded to successful candidates. We recommend that you prepare fully for your interview as this forms part of the learning process for students. We will provide feedback on your interview performance.
