Curve is a leading producing theatre, creating compelling cultural experiences for all those who live, learn, visit and work in Leicester. Under the leadership of Chief Executive, Chris Stafford and Artistic Director Nikolai Foster, Curve is developing a reputation for producing, programming and touring a bold and diverse programme of musicals, plays, new work and dance. All of this is presented alongside a dynamic mix of community engagement and learning opportunities, which firmly places audiences and communities at the heart of everything we do.
We are seeking an inspirational and visionary Executive Producer to lead on the management and delivery of Curve’s produced, programmed and touring work. The successful candidate will have significant experience in theatre administration and producing theatre on a variety of scales. Strong financial, scheduling and business planning skills are key, as is an ability to motivate, lead and manage the producing and programming team and oversee all artistic budgets ensuring ambitious yet realistic financial targets are in place.
As Executive Producer, you will oversee rights and deal negotiations across all visiting and produced work and must be able to effectively communicate with, and manage, a range of artistic stakeholders. You will be responsible for the delivery and management of all Curve’s produced programmed and touring work in accordance with the Theatre’s business plan. In addition, as a member of Curve’s Senior Management Team, you will contribute to business planning and policy setting across the organisation.
Due to the nature of the role, the successful individual will have a flexible approach to working, including the ability to work unsociable hours. Ideally the postholder will be located in Leicester, but flexible working will be considered for the right candidate.
We are an inclusive organisation, from our trustees and team members to our audience and participants. We treat all job applicants equally, regardless of class, age, disability, gender identity or gender expression, race, ethnicity, religion or belief, sexual orientation or any other equality characteristic. We particularly encourage applications from individuals who are underrepresented in the cultural sector.
