The ideal candidate is an excellent communicator, who would like to build on their administration experience in the third sector and arts industry, and is passionate about equal opportunity in the performing arts.


We are looking for a creative thinker, who takes initiative, is self-motivated and adaptable, and is looking for a varied role within a small but ambitious charity.
