South East Dance

Located in the heart of Brighton & Hove, The Dance Space is the new home for dance in the South East. With three dance studios, one of which converts into 123 seat performance space, alongside office space and meetings rooms, The Dance Space will be a place where dance artists and people from all sorts of different backgrounds can explore dance on an equal basis.  The building has been built with excellent access facilities and environmental standards and we want to enhance both these aspects in the way we operate the building.

South East Dance is looking for an Executive Assistant to join us at this exciting time as we prepare to open The Dance Space, Brighton & Hove’s newest arts & cultural building - a brand new home for dance in the heart of the city’s cultural quarter.  We are looking for a well-organised person who is a good team player with great communications skills and a flexible approach. Ideally the successful candidate will have some experience of administration and office management, but we would also be pleased to hear from anyone who has other experience that they think would make them a good fit for the role. The position will be based at The Dance Space in Circus Street.
