Each January Sydney Festival shakes up our city with a summer festival of art, music, dance, theatre and immersive experiences. We are proud of our long history of commissioning ground-breaking new Australian art, and we're equally proud to be a great place to work, with many of the seasonal team members returning year after year.
The team, which swells to over 100 during festival season, is tight, and the environment supportive. The harbour views from our office are to die for and our coffee machine best in show.
Sydney Festival is committed to equity and inclusion. We welcome and encourage applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, people with disability and people from the LGBTQI+ community. Sydney Festival strives to make reasonable adjustments to provide a supportive and barrier-free workplace. If you require any adjustments before or during the selection process, please mention this with your application.
It's the annual recrewtment drive!
Each year we have a wide range of crewing requirements across all of our venues from December 2023 to early February 2024. Roles needed include everything from site crew to outdoor festival bump-in to workers with experience in theatre lighting, front of house, sound and wardrobe.
The 2024 festival will run from 5 to 28 January and will need crew on deck as early as December. Positions are paid and allow you to experience the festival behind the scenes as part of a exciting community of artists and arts workers. We accept applications from anyone with the right to work in Australia and an interest in the arts.
