Work for Us

Southbank Centre directly manages the Royal Festival Hall, the Queen Elizabeth Hall, the Purcell Room, Voicelab, The Saison Poetry Library (housing the Arts Council Collection) and the Hayward Gallery. Southbank Centre encompasses all of these venues and the surrounding 21-acre site.

Southbank Centre hosts a range of arts including jazz, rock, classical, folk and world music, the visual arts, literature and contemporary dance. The Hayward Touring exhibition programme is also based on the South Bank and administered by the Board on behalf of Arts Council of England.

Our vision is to be the world's most inspiring centre for the arts.

Our mission is to draw everyone possible to this loved site and captivate them through our unique arts programme and the warmth of our welcome.

We have a dynamic and creative working environment and need talented, committed and motivated staff in order to maintain this. Our people are the key to our success as we work hard to meet the needs of our customers.
