How we work.

We make things happen.
In 2018 alone, our team facilitated more than 8,000 performances in 70 countries – that’s more than 20 performances a day!

We’re experienced pioneers.
Our colleagues and their predecessors have been forging relationships and breaking ground all around the globe for more than 140 years; from the first UK staging of Wagner’s Ring in 1882, to the Berlin Phil and London Symphony Orchestra’s debuts in Thailand in 2018.

We’re passionate.
We love the arts, which goes without saying, but are also passionate about our own and our artists’ social, environmental and ethical impact on the wider world.

We care about our team.
Our staff are our strongest asset, so we take care of them. Benefits include private medical insurance, confidential Employee Assistance Programme, life insurance, cycle to work, TOIL and Flexi Start Time, extended Christmas break, career and wellbeing reviews, enhanced family leave, and individualised training.

We’re open.
We operate in an open-minded and approachable way, cultivating meaningful relationships around the globe by acting with honesty and trust.

We enjoy spending time together.
Whether through communal lunches at our family-style kitchen table, supporting artists at concerts around the world, regular office get-togethers, or social events after work.


Employee satisfaction.

When asked in a survey, 100% of colleagues would recommend us as an employer, identifying colleagues and our culture as key reasons for this:

“the people who work here – even on a bad day someone will make you laugh!”
“the atmosphere in the office, and the genuine interest in making great music happen around the world”
“the trust and respect between colleagues”
“that we all genuinely are trying to do the best for our artists, and we support each other when there is a problem”


Diversity & inclusion.

Askonas Holt is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from all suitably qualified persons whatever your age, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion or disability.


Recruitment agencies.

At Askonas Holt we actively manage our own recruitment. On the rare occasions that we use agencies, we have an excellent and comprehensive preferred supplier list in place with negotiated terms and conditions. Unless we contact you, we will not accept agency applications.
