TheTicketingBusiness is delighted to be welcoming STAR apprentices from the Royal Shakespeare Company to the Forum in Manchester in April, opening up new opportunities for the next generation of ticketing leaders.

With support from the National College Creative Industries, ticketing employers can now recruit ticketing apprentices to
assist with the delivery of high quality ticketing and customer service. The ticketing industry is evolving rapidly as new technologies are developed and adopted. Ticketing employers need trained and quality people to ensure that they are able to benefit fully from the use of these technologies and provide first class service to all customers and clients. Find out more about the apprenticeship opportunities and what is involved here.

The Forum is encouraging professional development across the industry and – as a recent member of STAR – is supporting the society’s apprentice scheme with guest passes to those enrolled on the scheme including Ruth and Holly from the Royal Shakespeare Company. Find out more about them here.

Steve Haworth, Head of Sales and Ticketing at the RSC and STAR Council Member said “We’re delighted that TheTicketingBusiness Forum recognise this important apprenticeship in the industry and these guest passes for our apprentices will give them a glimpse of the global, broader nature of ticketing sector”.
