There’s never been a better time to join the team at the Beacon!

Despite all the challenges it threw at us, the pandemic gave us a big opportunity too – the time and space to think strategically about our creative, community and commercial ambitions for the Beacon. As a result, we’re now bursting with ideas, busy with plans and gearing up for a really exciting period of growth and development.

As you’d expect, we’re a Living Wage employer and along full time or freelance opportunities (check out the callouts below), we can also offer work placements and casual and voluntary opportunities. Keep checking back regularly and feel free to send in your CV and an indication of the kind of role or opportunity you’d be interested in.

West of Scotland students

Students from HND Technical Theatre course attend the Beacon every Monday throughout the academic
year to further their classroom learning with hands-on experience. The nature of the course means that
they are sometimes called to performances in the other venues but while they’re here, we aim to provide a safe, pressure-free environment in which they can learn with confidence.

We provide practical teaching in:
• health and safety
• manual handling
• ladder/telescope training
• basic electrical understanding and experience with fault finding
• practical lighting experience including working at height and computer programming
• practical sound operation including QLab instruction for theatre, studio recording and playback
