The RSNO Takeover is a two-day intensive work experience, open to anyone aged 16–18 years at the time of the event and living in Scotland. Applications are invited from any young person interested in a career in the arts or creative industries, regardless of whether you play a musical instrument or not.
I thought it was a fantastic few days and I learnt so much…I would recommend it to anyone!

We’ll select 50 young people to work in various departments of the organisation to produce a public concert at the end of the two day event.
Opportunities exist in arts marketing, press and PR, development (fundraising), learning and engagement, conducting and performing as a musician. For more information on the types of roles within the RSNO please see our Careers Booklet.
The opportunity is free, but you must be available to spend two full days in Glasgow at the home of the RSNO, on Monday 18 and Tuesday 19 June 2018. Travel and accommodation support is available for those travelling from considerable distances – please contact us if you are interested in claiming support.
