Interview Date: 06 Mar 2023 

We are excited to be recruiting a key member of our team for the delivery of our creative programme. You will be at the centre of our public facing programme ensuring that the nuts and bolts of what happens behind the scenes are all working smoothly!  

Lancaster Arts is a combined arts organisation of Arts Council England, and we think that this is a fantastic role for someone wanting to develop production skills across all art forms. The role requires enthusiasm, a commitment to the arts and high-quality delivery, strong people skills, the ability to learn quickly and picking up skills and know-how with a big dose of creativity. It will need a working knowledge of the practical, delivery needs of a public facing arts organisation and an understanding of at least one art form in some depth. You will also be someone who can grow and develop with us as we explore further opportunities together.  

Lancaster Arts is a distinctive contemporary arts organisation in the Northwest of England with a renowned reputation for cutting edge arts practice in all art forms. Our home is at the heart of the beautiful Lancaster University campus and our venues include the Great Hall, Nuffield Theatre and Peter Scott Gallery and we regularly host work off campus in the Lancaster District. We host a wide spectrum of events and participatory opportunities across contemporary theatre, dance, music, visual art, live art, contemporary circus, and comedy, and we work closely with partners locally, regionally, and internationally to achieve this. Please check the rest of this website to learn about what we do.

Lancaster Arts is a friendly small team, but we need to better reflect the rich diversity of the northwest. We are committed to attracting and recruiting more representative candidates, particularly disabled, D/deaf and/or neurodivergent people and those from black, Asian, and ethnically diverse backgrounds and we particularly encourage applications from people in these groups. We will guarantee an interview to disabled candidates who meet all essential criteria. We hope that the successful applicant will be able to start working with us in April during our Spring Season.
