Posting Job Vacancies

Please note that positions posted in the jobs sections of this website must be genuine paid posts. This is due to unpaid opportunities contravening minimum wage regulations.

Activate Performing Arts recognises that there is great value in people having access to proper work experience, where it is offered and arranged properly and is a mutually beneficial arrangement, but that this should never be used as a way of attempting to circumvent the minimum wage regulations.

This information is protected by UK data protection law. We remind you about our data collection policy when you fill out your details on our registration form.

We ask you to provide us with details such as name and email address — many fields on our registration form are optional but certain fields are mandatory. The data we collect from you is an important function in realising the goals of Activate Performing Arts, namely to build a networking tool for theatre and dance practitioners. It also helps us to understand our site userbase and allows us to send you information regarding site or Activate Performing Arts policy changes, such as modifications to our terms and conditions.

We do not share your personal information with third parties or send you Activate Performing Arts communication without your prior consent — you must give us your consent to do so by ticking the relevant check box when you register on the site. Should you wish to terminate your subscription to our newsletter you will find an unsubscribe link at the bottom of each newsletter.

Publicly posted information:

The information included in submitted listing is published publicly on this website. While we take technical steps to prevent automated harvesting email addresses we cannot guard against manual collection by third parties of the data published on this site.

You should be aware of the fact that publishing personally identifying information on the internet potentially puts you at risk of identity theft and weight these concerns in mind when adding content to the site. You can find more information about preventing identity theft on this website: http://www.identity-theft.org.uk/

Our opt-out policy:

You can opt-out from our email bulletin by clicking on the ‘unsubscribe’ link at the bottom of the newsletter.

Information gathered from competitions:

Occasionally we run competitions on www.activateperformingarts.org.uk. We will usually ask you to submit your email address so that we can contact you if you win. If delivering your prize requires it we may share that email address with another organisation, for example if you have won theatre tickets we will normally pass your details to the box office of the Theatre so you can collect your prize.
