General Manager Talking Birds (part time – 2 ½ days/week)

Having celebrated our 20th year in 2012, Talking Birds is now entering an exciting period of development and change. We’re looking for an exceptional person to work 2 ½ days a week as General Manager, alongside the Artistic Directors, as we begin our second year as an Arts Council NPO, (the company’s 11th year as a revenue funded client of ACE).

Since 1992 Talking Birds has been producing thoughtful, playful, resonant, mischievous and transformative meditations on people and place. Our work, which we call Theatre of Place is characterised by a distinctive blend of humour, music and visual flair in venues both conventional and unconventional across the UK and internationally. Often our work is made collaboratively, connecting people and place in richly imaginative moments of identification and insight. We aim to design accessibility into the heart of our projects and believe in the capacity of art to effect positive change for individuals and for communities.

We’re looking for someone who really gets what we do, and who wants to be an integral part of our ongoing development. This person will be organised, strategic, flexible, rigorous, supportive, challenging, constructive – and full of energy, enthusiasm and curiosity. They’ll have five years or more experience.

The General Manager will ensure the smooth running of the company, and enable the Artistic Directors to focus on the core creative work. Key areas of activity will be: strategic planning; company management; Board support; financial management; funding applications & relationships; monitoring and evaluation; partnership development; and project/office administration.
