Inclusive recruitment practices

We have committed to seeking alternative forms of advertising to reach a more diverse range of applicants for roles at Bristol Old Vic, and guaranteeing an interview for applications with protected characteristics who meet the job’s essential requirements.
Contact: Kathryn Cleave, HR Manager

We have run open days and moved to shortlisting only on essential criteria for usher recruitment, ensuring that these frontline roles are open to all and leading to the recruitment of a more diverse staff team.
Contact: Liz Hebden, FOH Manger

We have run an open day for volunteer recruitment and currently have a pool of over 50 individuals actively involved in our volunteer programme, working alongside the Front of House team to welcome visitors and support the heritage engagement programme. The volunteer pool comprises people from all backgrounds including some with additional needs.
