At NIDA, we look for people who are committed to developing new and improved ways to engage with our students, audiences, customers and each other. 

NIDA offers employees the opportunity to work with a broad range of people from across the arts and entertainment sectors. 

Our staff come from a range of professional areas, including the creative industries, IT, marketing, human resources, finance and administration. Our team of educators are professionals with experience across the dramatic arts including acting, writing, staging, movement, voice, costume and production design. 

Full-time students come from across Australia and overseas, and are dedicated to developing the skills they need to be Australia’s next generation of creative leaders. 

In addition, each year we welcome more than 15,000 students of all backgrounds and abilities through NIDA Open and Corporate short courses.
