More Details

The Theatre Green Book (TGB) is a sector-wide resource to support theatres and theatre practitioners to make every aspect of their work more environmentally sustainable, across productions, operations and buildings.  It is both an online resource and a network of theatre practitioners across all roles who are committed to developing best practice in environmentally sustainable theatre and promoting the use of the Theatre Green Book more widely.

The 2nd edition of the Theatre Green Book, launched in June 2024, provides clear online guidance and tools to support practitioners to identify and achieve ambitious but realistic sustainability targets.  Its strength is that it was developed and is sustained through a broad and active partnership of theatres, theatre-makers and sector support organisations, supported by the specialist sustainability team at engineering practice Buro Happold.

This is an exciting time to join this award-winning initiative and this 12-month fixed term contract role has been created to drive the next stage of the Theatre Green Book’s development and to deliver the objectives agreed with Arts Council England as part of their strategic delivery plan.  There is potential to extend the role beyond the first 12 months subject to successful income generation and / or fundraising.

We encourage applications from people of colour, LGBTQ+ people (we are a trans-inclusive organisation), people with disabilities, and people who have experienced other exclusion or marginalisation.
