We are delighted to be recruiting a key member of our team for the delivery of our creative programme. You will be at the centre of our public facing programme ensuring that the nuts and bolts of what happens behind the scenes are all working smoothly! 

This is a fantastic role for someone wanting to develop production skills across all art forms, as Lancaster Arts is a combined arts organisation of Arts Council England. The role requires enthusiasm, a commitment to the arts and high quality delivery, strong people skills, picking up skills and know-how quickly and a big dose of creativity.

We host a wide spectrum of events and participatory opportunities across contemporary theatre, dance, music, visual art, live art, contemporary circus, and comedy, and we work closely with partners locally, regionally and internationally to achieve this.  

Lancaster Arts is committed to attracting and recruiting diverse candidates, particularly from communities who are currently less represented in the North West, including those with protected characteristics. We will guarantee interview to (dis)abled candidates who meet all essential criteria. As a National Portfolio Organisation for Arts Council England, we are champions for the Creative Case for Diversity.
