Northamptonshire Arts Management Trust
Salary commensurate with importance of job
Following the announcement that Martin Sutherland will be leaving Northamptonshire Arts Management Trust (NAMT) to join the UK City of Culture team in Coventry as Executive Director and Chief Executive, the Board is seeking to appoint a new Chief Executive to lead the organisation into its next phase of development.
Employed by NAMT, the Chief Executive is the lead officer for Royal & Derngate, the Errol Flynn Filmhouse and The Core at Corby Cube. Each of these venues has a distinctive identity and mission, complementing each other and together creating a regional arts complex noted for the quality and breadth of its diverse activities. Award-winning in-house productions and brilliant creative learning projects sit alongside a busy programme of the best touring shows in the country; where an independent arthouse cinema welcomes thousands of people every year to an expanding cultural quarter; and where festivals and artist development activities inspire local audiences to engage with the arts on their doorstep.
Our ideal candidate will be a senior executive in the cultural or creative industries sector with experience of managing large teams and significant budgets and a track record of successfully leading change and growth. The ability to establish and maintain effective strategic partnerships with a diverse range of stakeholders and network at the highest political levels will be important in this role, as will balancing creative risk and ambition with sound financial management. Knowledge of producing and presenting theatre and live entertainment programming and deal making is desirable. Our next Chief Executive will provide inspirational and entrepreneurial leadership, ensuring that artistic excellence, innovation, financial resilience and equality of opportunity underpin our plans and that our regional and national profile and reputation continue to grow.
We seek to be an inclusive organisation and promote equality of opportunity, but recognise that we and the wider arts sector need to take action to ensure that our workforce is representative of the communities we serve. Therefore, we actively encourage applications from under-represented groups, including Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic individuals and those who consider themselves to be disabled.
