Full and part-time positions at Leeds Playhouse

 

 

  • Senior Producer

    In Autumn 2019 Leeds Playhouse will open its new improved doors to welcome everyone to a newly refurbished building, and to welcome audiences to two refurbished theatres, and a new studio theatre, the Bramall Rock Void.

    We are looking for a new Senior Producer to join our busy Artistic Planning team to provide critical support to the theatre’s artistic leadership and to support the transition from our current pop-up theatre, to support us into a new chapter as we approach our 50th anniversary in 2020, and look forward to Leeds’ landmark cultural celebration in 2023.

    If you have a project management background, this could be the opportunity to really make your mark as we start a new chapter in the life of the Playhouse here in Leeds. You will have responsibility for creating budgets, schedules and contracts to the benefit of both the Playhouse’s artistic achievement and financial sustainability.

    If you will be new to Leeds, you’ll be joining a modern growing city at the heart of the Leeds City Region, which combines the thriving cultural and educational sectors, a robust shopping and tourism offer, the largest financial centre in England outside London, and the Yorkshire Dales right on your doorstep.

    If you would like to apply, please download the following:

    Deadline for applications is: Tuesday 19 February 2019 at 9am.

  • Technical Director

    In Autumn 2019 Leeds Playhouse will open its new improved doors to welcome everyone to a newly refurbished building, and to welcome audiences to two refurbished theatres, and a new studio theatre, the Bramall Rock Void. We are looking for a new Technical Director to lead the transition from our current pop-up theatre, and to launch us into a new chapter as we approach our 50th anniversary in 2020, and look forward to Leeds’ landmark cultural celebration in 2023.

    If you have a strong technical theatre background, this could be the opportunity to really make your mark as we start a new chapter in the life of the Playhouse here in Leeds. We’re looking for someone who knows technical procedures, stagecraft and technology – and can share an enthusiasm for those disciplines, in an inclusive and safe way.

    It’s not just about the technical skills, though: we need someone who has proved they are ready and able to join our senior leadership and management team, and can support the work on the artistic programme, Furnace offer and Creative Engagement teams, as well as helping us to forge even closer partnerships with Higher and Further Education. You’ll have worked at a senior level before (even if on a temporary or informal basis), and be able to show that you can hit deadlines, manage and meet budgets, and bring people together inside and outside an organisation to deliver.

    If you will be new to Leeds, you’ll be joining a modern growing city at the heart of the Leeds City Region, which combines the thriving cultural and educational sectors, a robust shopping and tourism offer, the largest financial centre in England outside London, and the Yorkshire Dales right on your doorstep.
