Young Vic
Job Specification
The Young Vic is one of Europe’s most celebrated theatres. Established in 1970 it was designed to create a new kind of theatre for a new generation – one that was unconventional, classless, open, democratic and cheap. The Theatre produces new plays; reimagined classics; musicals; adaptations of books; short films; club nights; digital projects; and other game-changing forms of theatre, attracting large audiences from many different backgrounds. Young Vic shows are created by some of the world’s greatest theatre makers alongside some of the most adventurous of the younger generation. 
After leading the Board of the Young Vic for almost 20 years, Patrick McKenna will stand down in October 2019 having made an extraordinary contribution to the theatre and its legacy. He leaves in place an able and committed Board, an excellent and hardworking Executive Team, a good financial position and an exciting period of development ahead, including the celebration of the theatre’s 50th Anniversary (September 2020–September 2021). The Young Vic is therefore now seeking an exceptional candidate to take on the role of Chair. 
Candidates should bring a passion for theatre and the conviction that the arts have the power to transform lives and communities. They will likely have a strong track record of leadership and experience of working at board level, ideally in a chairing role. Candidates will need to demonstrate a commitment to diversity and inclusivity.
