The Royal Exchange Theatre sits at the heart of Manchester's culturally dynamic city centre. We are one of the largest and most compelling producing theatre companies in the UK.
This is an exciting new role that brings together all the Royal Exchange’s work with children and young people aged 5-25 to deliver an ambitious new strategy which forefronts children and young people’s engagement with their local world class theatre. This includes leading our work with schools, the Young Company and community-based programmes across Greater Manchester.
We are therefore seeking to appoint a proactive and experienced manager with a proven record of developing and managing high quality programmes that inspire and engage children and young people and have experience of managing staff and freelance artists to deliver this.
We therefore welcome applications from experienced managers and producers and from practicing artists with relevant experience and skillset. It is not essential for this post holder to have their own artistic practice but artists applying would be encouraged to make at least one piece of work each year themselves and provision made to enable this to happen.
Closing date: 10am, Monday 5th March 2018
Interviews: Friday 16th March 2018
We believe that diversity strengthens and enriches us, and that it is the responsibility of everyone at the Royal Exchange Theatre to make the arts and cultural sector a more diverse and equal place. As Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) and disabled people are currently under-represented here, we particularly encourage and welcome applications from BAME and disabled applicants. All appointments will be made on merit.
