Work for us
It’s a cliché but it definitely applies: The Fringe is an experience like no other! We produce the widest programme at the largest arts festival in the world and as part of our team, you’ll get to help us transform empty buildings into thriving, bustling Fringe spaces.
Our spaces have become widely recognised as the home of award-winning theatre and new work at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. We host the most diverse programme at the Festival, offering an array of new writing, theatre, dance, music, children’s and family shows, comedy, drama, sketch, cabaret, opera, acapella, exhibitions, events and stand-up comedy shows. Our passion is relentless and our expertise extensive.
Our team make this possible. What started as a small group of friends in a church hall back in 1995 is now a monster effort spread across six sites in central Edinburgh yet we still pride ourselves in offering the quality of service and attention to detail that came with the small scale operation - our customers, whether theatre companies or members of the public - know they’ll be looked after in our venues.
Every year we have in excess of 4500 performers from over 370 companies ranging from solo acts to huge choirs, professional touring groups to community ensembles. We admit about 120,000 audience members through our doors to enjoy more than 4000 performances. Easy!
During the four weeks of the Fringe, you’ll meet countless like-minded people on our crew, our box offices, industry support teams and in our performing companies, and many people make friends for life.
People who have worked for us have gone on to major roles in the industry, from cruise ships to Glastonbury, Scottish Opera and the National Theatre Wales to the West End, from working for hire companies to national broadcasters, schools to regional theatres - even the United Nations! The Festival provides valuable experience that you can take with you in your future career.
The experience is unrivalled, incredibly unique and hugely rewarding - and we’re proud that many come back to be part of our Fringe family year after year.
We very much look forward to hearing from you.
