About The Role
This is a unique opportunity to use your practical production and arts/cultural planning and programming experience to collaborate with our Director of Festivals on the development, delivery and co-ordination of our festivals programme. In particular, we will look to you to increase its ambition and overall impact.
Working with our Festivals team you will help realise our desire to be recognised nationally as the leading festival producer in the city and region. This will involve delivering high profile events and activities with a range of partners. You will recruit and manage high quality artists, creative teams and collaborators, develop project schedules as well as ensure activities are delivered to deadline and within budget. Important will be the ability to ensure the Programme is delivered safely and in compliance with regulations.
Practical production and/or cultural venue programming experience is essential as is your ability to balance both artistic and commercial imperatives, in a fast moving, creative environment. You will have experience of coordinating/supervising teams of artistic personnel and the delivery of artists, creatives and visiting show contracts. You will be used to working on small and large-scale events and outdoor festivals too. A sound project manager, you will also possess excellent communication, interpersonal and relationship building skills.
If you want to be part of an organisation that will invest in you and give you the opportunity to develop, you can enjoy a new stage for your skills by visiting the recruitment page on our website and applying online via the link.
Recognising under-representation in our workforce of Black, Asian and global majority people, and those with disabilities, we particularly welcome applicants from those backgrounds, identities and experiences.
