As a newly-defined role, and as part of our growth as an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation (from April 2018), we are seeking an ambitious, focused, truly exceptional and dynamic General Manager to work as part of the executive team to drive the Company forward during the next phase of its development.
Arts Council England recognises Vamos Theatre as creating ‘outstanding’ performances as the leading full mask theatre company in the UK. With an established national profile, Vamos Theatre is also increasing its international remit and you will play a key role in supporting the growth in both of these arenas.
This newly created General Manager role is part of our expansion plans, made possible by the commitment of funding from Arts Council England, and we are willing to be flexible to find the right person. You may want to work full time (40 hours) or you may be looking for a job to fit around other commitments. Either are fine by us, and we will work with the successful candidate to shape the role around the critical needs of the organisation, individual circumstances and the skills of the successful applicant. We feel able to offer a contract between 30 – 40 hours per week with a minimum of 4 days in the office and this is an essential.
