Closing Date: 
Monday, 14 October, 2019

The role sits at the heart of a busy, creative, ambitious organisation, working across the building to deliver our programme of arts and entertainment. It would be an ideal position for those interested in starting a career in the arts, as well as more experienced administrators. Training in all areas can be provided. We are always far more interested in finding the right person for us and structuring the job around that individual.

Chipping Norton Theatre is a restlessly busy and ambitious theatre and arts centre in the Cotswolds. Welcoming over 50,000 people every year in a town of little over 6,000, The Theatre delivers a yearround programme of theatre, comedy, music, film and participatory activities for audiences across the region. More recently, we have grown as a producing house, creating three major productions each year and growing a stronger and more loyal audience as a result. We are looking to grow this area of our work and have begun to tour our work across the UK.

The Theatre, sited in a Victorian former Salvation Army Citadel, is a charming and warm environment for this wide range of activities. In addition to the main 200+ seat auditorium, we have a range of workshop and rehearsal spaces and a gallery exhibiting local and national artists.

The Arts Administrator is a new position at the theatre and is central to our business plan to streamline our operations, develop our production work and grow our marketing reach. It is a fantastic opportunity to work at the heart of an ambitious creative team, and gain experience of running a public building, producing, programming and marketing in a beautiful theatre in a beautiful part of the world. We are a very welcoming team and are always keen to invest in our staff and their futures.

The job is diverse, demanding a degree of flexibility, a high level of multi-tasking organisation, and lots of energy! Ideally we are looking for someone quick thinking and energetic, with an interest in and some understanding of the arts world. We would be just as happy to hear from those starting out in their careers as well as those with some prior experience.
