Working at LIPA
LIPA is a small, creative, specialist institution with big ideas. We aim to prepare our students for a lasting career in the performing arts economy.
Our academic staff are active practitioners in their field and have worked across the cultural landscape, from the BBC to Factory Records, X-Factor Dance Company, The National Theatre, Warner Bros, The Tron and Top of the Pops. Take a look at the staff lists of specific courses for details of their experience.
Our support staff are important to us too, and we provide a friendly working environment.
LIPA is housed in a meticulously restored Grade II-listed building in Liverpool’s Georgian Quarter. Transformed into a performing arts institute, it occupies an enviable site on the edge of the city centre, and many of our facilities are considered world class.
LIPA attracts highly talented students. They are not just from the UK, but from many overseas countries too. Around a third of our undergraduates are international students.
We encourage collaboration between disciplines. Student designers, managers, technicians and performers gain insights into each others' roles and so deepen their understanding of the performing arts industry.
Working at LIPA offers you the opportunity to influence their growth and guide their talent. Why not be a part of it?
