Programme Manager

We’re recruiting a Programme Manager to join our team.

Global Grooves is seeking a highly organised, motivated, and dedicated individual to help develop and manage our funded programmes and touring productions. The role will offer administrative and project management support to set up, deliver, market and evaluate projects associated with our learning and participation programme both on and off site as well as the project management and production of performances and touring work. You will work closely alongside other Global Grooves producers, freelance artists and programme managers to deliver high quality participatory and performance events for a wide variety of participants, clients and funders. Projects will consist of larger sustained programmes of work, ‘short and sweet’ funded projects, and smaller ‘one off’ events. This role is ideal for someone who is looking to gain a wide range of different experiences in the arts and cultural sector and those who want to be part of the development of Tameside’s brand new, and only multi-use cultural venue and Carnival centre of excellence.

Work will be varied as part of a small dedicated, hard working team and meet the needs of rapidly growing extremely busy, and developing emerging organisation including; Understanding in detail a number of complex and linked funded programmes, some established and others yet to fully be launched or indeed imagined.

This is an exciting and unique opportunity for a keen individual with a passion for the arts and excellent organisational and administrative skills. This is an involved and important role in a small but very busy emerging organisation and arts centre.

We are committed to having a workforce that is representative of the communities we serve and at all levels of the organisation. We therefore welcome applications from all backgrounds and all sections of the community.
