Big Wheel is recruiting!


PLEASE NOTE, owing to some glitches on some job websites, the deadline for job applications has been extended to 24th July. If you have already applied, we will be contacting you soon about your audition slot. 

We are now open to applications for our 2017 schools tour of The Netherlands, Belgium and Sweden to run from 23rd September to 1st December.

We are interested not only in actors but in anyone who likes the look of what we do. We have employed teachers, lawyers, academics, Butlins redcoats, writers, waiters, musicians, artists, and civil servants, and people who’ve done nothing at all.

You must be 23 or over with a full clean driving licence held for at least two years.  The tours involve a lot of driving so all members of the team need to share driving responsibilities.

Pay is £350 per week plus a daily allowance on tour.


Before you apply, take a look at our full job description here.  This will give you a good idea of what it’s like to tour with Big Wheel.  It also answers many of the questions people have about the job (like travel expenses etc).

Once you’ve read the job description…

Do you think you’re up to the challenge?!  If yes, then follow these instructions to apply:


Firstly, please send us your CV.  Not just a performance CV, a full CV so we can see everything that you’ve done. 

Secondly, please write a cover letter telling us why you are interested in our European schools tour, and please also answer the following three questions:

  • What is your favourite moment from a Shakespeare play, and why?
  • Tell us about a book/film/TV show/blogger/YouTube channel/computer game or something else entertainment-related that you love at the moment.
  • Who would play you in the Hollywood blockbuster of your life, and why?

 Finally, please do NOT send us a photo.  We want to know what you’re like, not what you look like!   

Please tell us the date you passed your driving test and confirm that you are 23 or older and email this, along with your cover letter and CV, to Mats at,

Deadline for applications has been extended to 24th July.

Interviews/auditions will be held in London on Friday 28th, Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th July with the recall on Thursday 3rd August.

Rehearsals in London will start on 4th September. There will be the opportunity to continue to work for Big Wheel after this contract.

If you have any questions please do get in touch.  Otherwise, we look forward to receiving your application!
