Based in Cardiff, Music Theatre Wales is one of Europe’s leading contemporary opera companies, recognised since its formation in 1988 as a vital force, presenting bold new work that is characterised by the powerful impact it makes on audiences and artists alike. Supported by the Arts Council of Wales and Arts Council England, and an associate company of the Royal Opera House, we normally produce one major UK tour every year, plus smaller scale projects and outreach work, and occasional international touring. From 2018, Music Theatre Wales will be expanding to support new ways of making work, and building exciting new relationships with partner organisations including a leading contemporary ensemble.
This new post will support and report to the Chief executive and will help to shape and develop the company, leading on all aspects of the operational management, including administration, financial management and policy compliance. The post holder will be part of a Senior Management Team comprising the Chief Executive, Artistic Director and General Manager. It’s an exciting opportunity to play a key role in a small organisation where the artistic and administrative functions are fully integrated.
The successful applicant will have significant relevant experience in a similar senior role, preferably within the arts. We’re looking for someone who will demonstrate genuine commitment to the type of work we do and who is happy to work in a small and fast-paced environment.
As this is a new role, it’s likely to develop as the company’s new operating model further develops so we’re looking for someone who will adapt to change and be prepared to take on a wide range of responsibilities to ensure the successful development of projects and the smooth running of this small and ambitious organisation.
