English Touring Opera are recruiting for one of the most desirable posts in a performing arts organisation.
The Artistic Administrator closely supports and assists the Director, and examines every aspect of the company's work from the perspective of the performing artist. They coordinate between agents, singers and production teams, and communicates information to finance and production staff. The right candidate will be a self-starter, but also a finisher, and they will take pleasure in enabling and facilitating. A thorough understanding of the training and life of a musician is essential, as well as IT literacy and clarity and economy in writing and in speech. An ethical business head will help.
The Artistic Administrator will assist the Director in the creation of a new stream of digital content while also preparing for a live tour in Autumn 2021.
We particularly encourage applications from disabled people and people from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds, as these groups are currently under-represented in the cultural sector. Fast learners are encouraged to apply.
This role is offered on a 3-5 day per week, 6 month fixed term contract. Less than full time hours can be spread across the week. This aims to offer flexibility for candidates who may have other commitments during periods of government restrictions. Our hope is that the successful candidate could continue beyond the 6 month contract, upon review.
Closing date: 9th March 2021.
