Assistant Creative Learning Producer, Dance Umbrella


Dance Umbrella is looking for an Assistant Creative Learning Producer to join the team on a fixed-term freelance basis. This is a great opportunity for someone to work alongside DU’s Creative Learning Producer and the festival team to further develop their experience of participatory dance practice and performance production.

We’re looking for an enthusiastic and motivated person who can blend into a busy team and who would be willing to work across a range of different projects. The ideal candidate has experience of participatory work and ideally also has some experience of working with artists and within performance contexts.

This will be a freelance short-term contract, based at Somerset House, working in various parts of London. This year’s festival will be delivered in a hybrid way manifesting in venues, outdoor sites and online with some of the most exciting dance artists from across the globe. The festival will run 7 – 23 October 2022. It is preferable that you’re London-based as the role may require extensive travel across the city. The postholder will work out of the Dance Umbrella office a minimum of one day a week in the run up to the festival. This will be reviewed, based on business needs, closer to the festival weeks. This post will require a current DBS certificate.

Term: 15 weeks, freelance short-term contract; 3 days per week

  • Ideally the role would begin on w/c 18 July 2022 (days to be decided)
