Why work for us?

Sydney Theatre Company produces theatre created to illuminate, entertain and challenge. We are committed to engagement between the imagination of our artists and our audiences, to the development of the artform of theatre, and to excellence in all our endeavours.

STC has been a major force in Australian drama since its establishment in 1978. The Company operates out of our home venue, The Wharf, on Sydney's harbour, is the Resident Drama Company of the Sydney Opera House Drama Theatre and both performs in and manages the state of the art 850 seat Roslyn Packer Theatre at Walsh Bay.

We offer staff a creative and supportive environment in one of Sydney best harbourside locations. All staff are entitled to complimentary tickets to STC productions.

Work Experience

In 2016, work experience will take place from 26-30 September. We no longer offer ad hoc work experience placements for individual students and we do not offer work experience outside of these dates. Even if your work experience week is outside of this time, you might consider doing our week in addition to the work experience week designated by your school.

Work experience applications for 2016 are now closed. Find out more about the program in our Education section.


Sydney Theatre Company runs an internship program with key tertiary institutions in NSW, and internationally with Boston University. These internships are managed and coordinated directly through these institutions.

Unfortunately, due to the busy nature of a large theatre company, we are unable to accept unsolicited internship applications outside of these established programs.

Positions currently available

Artistic Director

Sydney Theatre Company is one of Australia’s leading performing arts organisations, producing a wide range of plays each year across four venues in Sydney as well as undertaking national and international touring and co-productions. The company has a proud heritage of developing new artistic voices and works through its resident artist program, writing and directing Fellowships, workshopping and commissioning.

Our new artistic leader must be able to attract and inspire the top theatre talent in Australia and the world; identify and develop the artists of tomorrow; and produce, in the words of our founding Artistic Director Richard Wherrett, “first class theatrical entertainment for the people of Sydney… theatre that is grand, vulgar, intelligent, challenging and fun.”

Working alongside the Executive Director and leading a talented and committed company, the Artistic Director will ensure the high standards of the company are met in all areas, and that programs are as sustainable as they are exciting.
