Join the SE team – Stage Manager and Set/Stage Designer

August 8, 2023

We’re excited to be recruiting for three new roles to support with the delivery of our in Sync tour with MishMash Productions in November, and for the development of the on-stage visual identity of the shows in our upcoming 2023-24 season.

We at Scottish Ensemble pride ourselves on creating productions that stand out of the crowd thanks to the power, quality and fresh-thinking behind all our work. We push ourselves to push boundaries, and we strive to be a sector leader when it comes to developing innovative approaches to classical music performance.

There is no such thing as a ‘standard’ Scottish Ensemble performance. We are always aiming to innovate and work collaboratively to create one-off, exhilarating musical experiences.
