Location: Sydney

Sydney Theatre Company (STC) is looking for a number of Sound & Video professionals to join our Company. Since 1978, Sydney Theatre Company has produced work that is – in the words of founding artistic director Richard Wherrett – “grand, vulgar, intelligent, challenging and fun.” A paradox as playful as our city.

In the 21st century, the company is dedicated to producing Australian works of ambition and scale. We create and share stories with artists and audiences that provide opportunities for reflection, revelation and joy. And we share our work widely through regional, national and international touring, partnerships and outreach activities.

Sydney Theatre Company encourages applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people with a disability, mature age workers, people from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer (LGBTI+) people.
