Production & Marketing Internship

« Return to Careers

The Really Useful Group is wholly owned by Andrew Lloyd Webber and exists to produce, licence and promote his shows and music around the globe, including his new Broadway musical, Bad Cinderella, and some of the world’s longest running and most successful musicals including The Phantom of the Opera, CATS, Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita, Sunset Boulevard and School of Rock – The Musical. The Really Useful Group works across theatre, film and television, producing and developing new projects and partnerships worldwide, alongside ongoing work in education, amateur licensing and music publishing. Each year, across markets in every corner of the world, The Really Useful Group’s content reaches and is shared by hundreds of millions of people.

The Really Useful Group is offering TWO two-month, paid internship opportunities to Black, Asian or ethnically diverse talent, interested in pursuing a career in production or marketing in the theatre industry. The successful applicants will work alongside industry professionals on Andrew Lloyd Webber’s catalogue of work.

Theatre plays a huge part in British culture and surveys continue to highlight that Black, Asian and ethnically diverse individuals are widely under-represented within the sector. At The Really Useful Group, we are dedicated to diversifying our workforce and these internships form part of our broader commitment to championing a more diverse theatre industry in the future.

What we are offering

The successful applicants to our intern programme will benefit from hands-on experience working mainly with the Marketing and Production & Licensing teams at The Really Useful Group’s Head Office, situated in the heart of London’s theatre district. You will get unique opportunities to acquire new skills working behind the scenes on some of the world’s best-known musicals. You will be assigned a mentor throughout your internship, gain industry knowledge, get to share your learning experiences with your intern buddy, and be supported in progressing your career aspirations.

To be eligible for these internships you must be 18 – 25 years old and from an ethnic minority background. These are paid internships, based on a pro rata annual salary of £22k, with a two-week salary advance paid to you in your first week.

Working at The Really Useful Group Head Office

We have a staff of 45 working in our Head Office. It’s an exciting, creative and fast-paced environment, where two days are rarely the same. We represent all of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical works for theatre, records, music publishing, film and television and manage the licensing process for all professional, amateur and school productions for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musicals. We are passionate about what we do.

The Marketing & PR Team

Rarely will you work in a marketing team as varied in activity as The Really Useful Group. Decisions made every day have global implications. The team at The Really Useful Group are not only custodians of the works of Andrew Lloyd Webber, ensuring all licensees adhere to the high-quality brand guidelines we set, but we are the proactive force in growing the audience footprint throughout the territories in which we are active. We manage a host of global marketing agencies, social media agencies and PR representatives and we also run full campaigns in house. Our marketing team is one of the best in the industry.

The Production & Licensing Team

Production & Licensing is at the heart of our company. The Production & Licensing team at The Really Useful Group are responsible for licensing productions worldwide, overseeing and ensuring the highest standards of quality, and working closely with Andrew to produce his own work in the West End and on Broadway. Every day working in this small, experienced, dynamic team is different to the next. One day you could be working on a budget for a new production, and the next in an audition room.

The Ideal Candidates

We would like to hear from creative, ambitious individuals, keen to learn what it takes to stage a successful musical production. We are looking for people with good communication skills and a can-do attitude.

You will be working in a fast-paced environment, so your motivation and willingness to contribute will be key to your success. These roles will suit driven, self-starting individuals that are eager to learn and have a passion for theatre.

Previous theatre experience or studies are not essential, we would be happy to be your first step into the industry! Please Note: these internships are non-performance based.
