Job Application Process FAQ

How will I be informed about vacancies?

To find out about new opportunities at the Royal Albert Hall, please register your details, sign up to job alerts and you will be informed by e-mail.

Can I register my interest in working with you even if there isn't a suitable vacancy for me at present?

Yes, you can. If you go to our Sign in and Register page you can register your profile, upload your CV and tell us what kind of jobs you're interested in. You can also sign up for email alerts so you know when the right position comes along.

We'll be searching our talent pool whenever a vacancy comes up as well. So if we feel your experience matches what we're looking for, we'll give you a call.

How do I apply for a job at the Hall?

To apply for jobs at the Royal Albert Hall, please visit the jobs section on our website and follow the online instructions.

Do I have to complete my job application in one go?

It is possible to save and edit your job application as many times as you wish.  Please ensure that your application is fully complete before submitting it for a job.

Can I change my personal details?

To edit your details please sign into your account, click in the 'My details' heading, edit and confirm.

Do you accept paper based applications?

In order to consider all applications equally and ensure that our recruitment process is fair and consistent, we ask all applicants to complete our online application process.  This helps us to ensure that we collect the same information for all candidates and allows us to track your application and monitor the recruitment process. 
 
Whilst our preference would be for an online application form, applicants who cannot complete the online form may submit a paper form, please contact the HR team to obtain one. 

Can I apply for more than one position?

Yes you can, but please make sure that they are all positions you have the experience and skills to do well.

What happens after I submit my application?

We'll let you know when we receive your application through automated e-mail.  All applications will be considered according to criteria for the role, which includes knowledge, skills and experience.

If you make it through to the interview stage, you will receive notification either by e-mail or phone, and we aim to give feedback following interviews as soon as possible.

If you're not quite right for the role, we'll send you an email to let you know you haven't got through to the interview this time.

I was unsuccessful in the application process. Will I get feedback?

It depends where you were in the process. We are able to give feedback after interviews, but not after the CV screening stage – the high number of applications we receive means that, unfortunately, we can't get back to everyone with specific feedback.

What is the Royal Albert Hall's selection process?

This does vary according to the role but it's generally either a one- or two-stage process. We'll review your experience, a range of competencies and if it's relevant we'll also ask you to undertake some form of exercise or prepare a presentation at either the first or second stage.

Do you offer work placement or internship opportunities?

Unfortunately we are not currently organising ad-hoc volunteering, work experience or internships at the Hall. Specific opportunities may occasionally arise and when they do they will be advertised on the jobs site, alongside our other vacancies.  As with our other vacancies you can sign up for job alerts and you will then be alerted when an internship opportunity opens.
