Do you want to help lead Contact, a multi-award winning creative organisation that disrupts traditional notions of the arts: what theatre can be, who it’s for, and who makes it? Do you want to create positive social change and support leaders of the future?

Contact is the leading national contemporary theatre and arts organisation with young people at the heart of everything we do. Based in Manchester, we work locally, nationally and internationally to provide life-changing opportunities for the next generation of creative leaders, artists and audiences, redefining theatre in the process. We produce and present a professional programme of outstanding performances, events and festivals in our building, surprising places and virtual spaces, for young and highly diverse audiences.

As Contact looks to its future as a nationally leading arts organisation, including a £6.5m capital re-development under way, we have a brand new position and unique opportunity for an exceptional person to lead our communications, marketing and sales strategy.

Joining our Senior Management Team, you will help us lead important local, regional, national and international conversations in performance, youth leadership, diversity and social change. You will join a team that makes new things happen, at ‘one of the 20 theatres in the UK to see before you die’.

Contact has a long-standing commitment to diversity in its programming, producing, staffing and community engagement. We actively seek applications from the widest range of applicants.

Deadline for submission of applications: 10am Wednesday 28th November 2018.

Interviews will be held on: Wednesday 5th December 2018.
