40+ years ago, Clean Break was founded by two women in prison who believed in the power of theatre to transform lives. Our vision is of a society where women can realise their full potential, free from criminalisation.
Clean Break uses theatre to keep the subject of women in prison on the cultural radar, helping to reveal the damage caused by the failures of the criminal justice system. Through our unique work, we raise difficult questions, inspire debate, and help to effect profound and positive change in the lives of women with experience of the criminal justice system.
As an employer, we strongly believe that your lived experience enhances what you bring to a professional setting. We want women from a broad range of diverse backgrounds with a cross section of skills, experiences and narratives to extend and develop how we work.
We know that women's careers take many different paths for all sorts of different reasons. We support and celebrate this. You don't need to have an arts qualification, or a university degree or college education, to work with us.
Please note: because our work is about highlighting women's experiences and providing gender-specific services to women, all of our positions are open to women only (exempt under the Equality Ace 2010 Schedule 9, part 1).
