This position has now closed.

We are currently recruiting for a freelance Production Manager to support the creation and touring of new projects during 2020-21. We are looking for a flexible and experienced individual, with excellent attention to detail who can help us bring our work to life.

Working with our Artistic Director, Charles Hazlewood, we create exceptional music-based experiences for the broadest possible audience. We collaborate with an array of brilliant artists and organisations to create ground-breaking work. We are not a traditional orchestra and our projects reflect this. Ideally, we’re looking for someone who is as comfortable managing music festival set ups as they are theatre performances, documentary film recordings, or outdoor performance. Previous experience working at multi-artform venues or festivals would be advantageous.


4 days per month. £200 per day pre-production, £250 per day on-site. Fixed-term contract until 30th June 2021 with the potential to extend.
