We aim to ensure that our recruitment and selection processes do not discriminate against race, disability, sexuality, age, heritage, gender, religious or non-religious beliefs, nationality or family background.

NIDA Open offers casual teaching opportunities to work with a wide range of audiences across Australia.

Working for NIDA Open

NIDA Open runs a year round programme of educational activities, delivering a cross section of dramatic arts training to children, young people, adults, pre-professionals and established artists.

What we're looking for

Tutors at NIDA Open are industry professionals who work in collaboration with our course management team to teach classes within their areas of expertise and interest.
We seek out practitioners who are passionate about their craft and demonstrate a committed approach to teaching. We are currently seeking teaching artists across all aspects of theatre and screen performance based in WA (Perth), SA (Adelaide), QLD (Brisbane, Townsville, Cairns, Gold Coast) and Canberra who have experience and interest in teaching across our courses catering to children aged 2 to 12 years, Young People and Adults.

Please include in your expression of interest:

  • a cover letter addressing your capacity to undertake the role
  • a CV (indicating any professional or teaching experience) with contact details of two work related referees
  • a 150-200 word professional biography (please upload your bio into the 'selection criteria' section).

We strongly recommend you familiarise yourself with the NIDA Open program prior to submitting your application.  Applications that do not include the above three documents and are not submitted through this website will not be considered.

Please note: teaching opportunities at NIDA Open are subject to enrolment figures and we are therefore not in the position to offer guaranteed work.

From time to time casual tutors are appointed on an as-needs basis and in that instance we may be in contact if an opportunity arises which matches your skill set.

You must hold a valid Working With Children Check in your state of residence and be willing to support and implement NIDA’s Child Safe Strategies to undertake this role.


We interview for new teaching staff twice each year. Our next interview round will take place throughout late September and October 2017.  Only successful applicants will be contacted.
