Work With Us

Artists, participants and audiences are at the heart of Stellar Quines’ work.

We collaborate and co-produce with a range of organisations and people that speak to our intersectional feminist values and connect to the movement for equality.

When we have vacancies, we will advertise them on this webpage. We will also post about them on Creative Scotland’s website and across our social media channels.

We are a Living Wage Employer badge

Stellar Quines is accredited as a Living Wage Employer. The Living Wage commitment ensures everyone working at the company receives a minimum hourly wage of £9.90.

The real Living Wage is the only UK wage rate calculated according to the costs of living. Employers choose to pay the real Living Wage on a voluntary basis, recognising the value of their workers and ensuring that a hard day’s work receives a fair day’s pay.

Stellar Quines is a Parents and Carers in Performing Arts partner, committed to delivering the PIPA Best Practice Charter.

This is a set of guiding principles for all professional theatre organisations to follow, ensuring that places of work – and access to work – become as inclusive and accessible as possible to carers and parents.

We ensure that our project staff teams have excellent representation of women across all roles and endorse the Equity Inclusive Casting Policy.

We normally cast our productions using agents and other professional casting outlets. Unfortunately, we don’t have the capacity to hold open auditions for each of our productions, but will advertise opportunities if we do.

If you are a performer interested in working with the company, and would like to send us a copy of your acting CV, please do so to:, with the subject CASTING. Whilst we can’t acknowledge each CV sent we will keep them on file for consideration.

We are a fair pay employer and our fees are in line with or above recommended rates, as made by ITCEquitySDUKFST/SSP.

Stellar Quines is committed to minimising the environmental impact of our operations and the work we produce and tour.

The company has developed an Environmental Working Policy (PDF) with Creative Carbon Scotland.

Freelance Taskforce Logo

We sponsored a freelancer, Fi Fraser, to be a part of the Freelance Task Force, which was established at the start of the pandemic. The Task Force is made up of self-employed people working in theatre and performance arts across the UK.

The purpose of the task force is to strengthen the influence of the self-employed theatre and performance community and to create ongoing points of connection between freelancers and organisations, and amplify the voice of the self-employed in the conversations to come.

We campaign to make Scottish Theatre an inclusive and safe space for women and girls. We are members of the Federation of Scottish Theatre, and sit on their Equalities, Diversity and Inclusion working group.

We are also members of the First Minister’s National Advisory Council for Women and Girls (NACWG). The NACWG was formed as a catalyst for change to advise the First Minister on what’s needed to tackle gender inequality in Scotland. Their report on Creating an Intersectional Gender Architecture was published last year. It makes five key recommendations for enacting systemic change for Scotland now and for future generations.
