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.

"Takeover helped in my choice to pursue music further. I loved seeing all the background preparation for concerts and tours - it was amazing to be a part of that for a couple of days"
Takeover participant 2016

We 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.

Takeover 2020 will take place on Monday 15 and Tuesday 16 June 2020.
