Equal opportunities

We recognise the multiple and intersecting barriers many people experience to accessing jobs in the arts, due to their race and/or ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation, disability and socio-economic background among other identities.

At SSW we are working to address and dismantle these barriers and actively encourage people who are underrepresented within the staff team to apply for jobs at SSW. This includes people who experience racism, those who are disabled and/or neurodivergent, people who are trans, non-binary and/or queer and people from working class / lower socio-economic backgrounds among other underrepresented and oppressed identities. If you would like to find out more about our approach to accessibility and equal opportunities at SSW, please contact Programme and Communications Manager, Jenny on jenny@ssw.org.uk.
