Chinese Arts Now is seeking an Executive Director to join CAN’s Artistic Director An-Ting Chang to form a new leadership team that will drive CAN’s growth and ambitious development plans. The Artistic Director and the Executive Director will act as joint CEOs of CAN and both report to the Board of Trustees.

CAN is coming to the end of its first NPO round and is developing plans for its second NPO period. The new leadership team will be key to expanding the programme, increasing both earned and sponsorship income and achieving CAN’s ambitions for this next period.

The Executive Director role is new to CAN and the successful applicant will be expected to develop this new role, including the design and selection of an appropriate supporting team, in the way that best allows CAN to achieve its plans.

The aim is to support CAN to fulfil its potential as a cultural leader in the arts ecology within the UK and internationally.

All persons employed by CAN who are not directly involved in the artistic programme report to the Executive Director or to a team member designated by the Executive Director.
