Pleasance Festival Opportunities

Work with us at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe


We are looking for brilliant people to join us at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Starting with just two venues in 1985 we now run 33 performance spaces across 3 sites in Edinburgh every August - presenting the festival’s most compelling and entertaining shows. In 2023 our venues welcomed audiences of nearly 500,000 to over 5,700 performances of 285 productions in just 27 days.

In 2024 we will be celebrating our 40th Anniversary festival, and it’s already shaping up to be a really special year. 

Our applications are currently closed for Festival Team roles but if you would like to express your interest in a role, please fill out our EOI form and we will be in touch if applications reopen.

Volunteer Programme

  • Information on the Pleasance Festival Volunteer Programme can be found here.

Most roles run from the end of July to the end of August. Further information can be found in the individual Role Packs below.

Equal Opportunities

At the Pleasance Theatre Trust we want our team to reflect wider society and welcome applications from all sections of the community - in particular from anyone currently underrepresented in the creative industries.

We welcome applications from everyone, regardless of backgrounds or social group. If you would like to have an informal discussion about any role available or anything in this pack before you submit your application please contact [email protected]

You can also email to talk to us about your access needs. We discuss access with candidates at each step of the application process, so first we would discuss access for the application, then, if successful for the interview and then if successful, for the job.
