About The Role

Through Unity’s talent development programme Creative’pool, Unity is supporting more Liverpool artists to develop touring work and maintain sustainable careers in the arts sector. To support them further, we want to identify and develop the next generation of freelance producers developing work in Merseyside.

We are now looking for an experienced producer who is passionate about supporting local artists to realise their creative ideas and tour work, to join the team on an 18-month professional development placement. We’ll ensure you meet lots of talented artists and play a core role in supporting them to realise their full potential.

  • Undertake a part-time 3-4 month placement with Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse, working alongside their YEP and New Writing teams to support to local artists, mentored by the Senior Producer and YEP Director.
  • Undertake a 1 month placement with a local grassroots partner organisation
    • Design an external training programme bespoke to you
    • Represent Unity at events and industry performances
    • Receive guidance from a mentor for producing a Unity-supported artist or company on a national tour
