ENDED: Job Opportunity: Youth Arts Producer


Strike A Light are seeking a creative, dynamic Youth Arts Producer.

We are looking for someone who is enthusiastic about working with children and young people to join our team. The Youth Arts Producer’s role will be to coordinate and manage the delivery of our participation offer, including weekly classes, schools’ engagement and work with young audiences.

This is expected to be a 2.5 day per week post, with potential for a 3 day per week post combining the Youth Arts Producer role with our Youth Theatre practitioner role (see below for more details)

About the role

You will be passionate about young people’s access to the arts and supporting disadvantaged young people to engage. You will be motivated by creative ideas and have a healthy love of organisation. You will be confident working directly with young people, communicating with schools and managing freelance tutors.

The role is offered on a freelance basis with a fixed fee of £13,000. We anticipate that this role will equate to approximately 2.5 days per week. The post is offered on a one year contract in the first instance so we can review the role with you as our programme develops.

We are also currently recruiting a youth theatre practitioner and would be very keen to hear from candidates who would be interesting in taking on a 3 day per week post combining the Youth Arts Producer role and Youth Theatre delivery. Please apply using the application form below and include that you would also be interested in the Youth Theatre delivery role.

About us

Our vision is that Gloucester is a city of vibrant culture for all and we see arts and participation as key to this. We are a fast growing charity and Arts Council National Portfolio Organisation, responding to new ideas and trying different ways of working. We programme nationally renowned contemporary performance, offer youth residencies and weekly classes and support artists to produce new work.

We are committed to creating a team which is representative of the diverse communities we work with and to bringing together those with a variety of skills and experiences, to help shape what we do and how we work. We are particularly keen to hear from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates.
