Headlong Theatre
Job Specification
Headlong is one of the most ambitious and exciting theatre companies in the UK, creating exhilarating contemporary theatre: a provocative mix of innovative new writing, reimagined classics and influential twentieth century plays that illuminate our world. 
We make bold, ground-breaking productions with some of the UK’s finest artists. We take these industry-leading, award-winning shows around the country and beyond, in theatres and online, attracting new audiences of all ages and backgrounds. We engage as deeply as we can with these communities and audiences and this helps us become better at what we do. 
Our work is contemporary, relevant, P/political and unpredictable, and the Headlong Board is seeking new artistic leadership that embraces these values in our work and also brings their own vision to moving the company forward. The organisation must constantly evolve in order to both reflect and affect the rapidly changing world in which we live. The Artistic Director will make a crucial contribution to the future of the company, not only via their own artistic work but also in helping to shape Headlong's success in the UK arts and culture ecology and beyond. 
We encourage applications from candidates from diverse backgrounds, with a range of experiences and skillsets, and welcome applications from people at different stages of their careers. We look forward to discussing the direction and strategy of the company with candidates who bring an exciting vision for Headlong.
