Derby Theatre is looking for a dynamic Creative Producer for this nationally significant project funded by Arts Council England.

We’re thrilled to be one of two venues selected to receive £1.5m Arts Council England funding, coming from the National Lottery, to establish a pilot Performing Arts Producing Hub. The Producing Hubs will be groups of theatres, arts organisations, social enterprises, community groups and other organisations who will work to support and strengthen the performing arts sector in their local areas. 

Derby Theatre will use the funding to create new work with audiences and communities at its heart, working closely with partners from the city and beyond to deliver the various strands of the project.

Derby is already a city that works together and puts the community at the centre of the arts. But we as a city know we can learn a lot from others and we are looking for a Creative Producer who respectfully challenges and pushes us to do more, reach more people and expand our vision for this city.  

The successful candidate will bring a combination of creative ability, solid project management skills, and a flair for community collaboration. The role will include establishing, running and evaluating the project, inspired by ongoing needs analysis to truly represent Derby’s communities. If you’re energised by this unique opportunity please apply; initial informal conversations with Derby Theatre’s Artistic Director, Sarah Brigham, are welcome. Please call Helen on 01332 593945 or email jobs@derbytheatre.co.uk to arrange.

We positively encourage people with disabilities or from minority ethnic backgrounds to apply to join our teams as they are under-represented within Derby Theatre’s workforce. We guarantee to interview any candidate with a disability or from an ethnic minority background who meets the essential criteria for the role.
