The National Youth Theatre continuously aims to create and retain an inclusive and representative working environment that delivers opportunities for current and future staff members and ensures that all talent is recognised, utilised and valued. We are committed to being an equal opportunities and disability confident employer and to address areas of under-representation in the charity.
To support this ongoing work we are conducting a 360 audit of representation within the organisation and need to identify the below characteristics of our existing staff members, freelancers and individuals who wish to work with us. We would be grateful if you would complete the following questionnaire.
You might feel that proposed categories don’t correlate with how you perceive yourself – feel free to self-define if that’s the case. You are also of course welcome to choose not to answer any of the below or to fill in this form. Your answers will be treated confidentially and in the strictest confidence and will not affect your current employment with us or your job application in any way. The questions and answers on this form have been compiled from Arts Council England (our main funder), the LGBT foundation, The Gate Theatre and Graeae. We welcome any comments or suggestions for amendments, which can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
