Job Description

We’re looking for an experienced management professional from the creative and cultural sector. You’ll have worked in significant (in terms of both size and profile) arts, entertainment or cultural organisations in a senior managerial capacity, with proven skills and experience on the ‘business’ side of the organisation, especially growing commercial income. Although a finance background isn’t required, you’ll be financially competent and commercially astute, and you’ll also have a decent working understanding of relevant legal aspects (particularly in respect of dealing with contracts and HR).

You’ll have experience of charity governance and delivering against a charity’s mission and objectives, and you’ll be used to writing papers and reporting to a Board. A confident communicator, you’ll be wellpractised in managing multiple stakeholders, comfortable working in a political environment, and ideally have experience of working within an independent organisation that works in close partnership with the public sector. You’ll be the conduit through which many people’s ideas and aspirations are translated into tangible actions for a small and specialist team, whilst ensuring the ongoing success and stability of the business. As such, you’ll be happy working both strategically and operationally, and willing to work hard and get your hands dirty.

We’re proud of the diversity of our community and aim to build a team that represents it. We therefore particularly welcome applications from people from black, Asian and ethnically-diverse backgrounds, and those identifying as D/deaf or disabled.
