HORIZON (England’s performing arts showcase at Edinburgh Festivals 2022 & 2023) is looking for an efficient administrator, with excellent organisation and communication skills, to assist in the delivery of the showcase. The role will support all aspects of the delivery team’s work, including programme delivery, marketing, and managing relationships with international delegates. The role will also play a key part in supporting the wider consortium to engage in the work.
The Horizon consortium comprises six nationally significant venues and festivals: Battersea Arts Centre (BAC); Dance4; Fierce; GIFT; MAYK; and Transform. The 2021 pilot showcase included streamed live theatre, dance and live art performances, digital works and other events for a global audience, with international delegates supported to engage virtually with the performances. For 2022 & 2023, the showcase will primarily involve live performance, in Edinburgh, but digital wraparound activities will also form part of the work. Artist Residencies and bursaries are also a feature of the plans.
The role will be contracted by BAC, but you have the option of working remotely, from anywhere in the UK. Some travel to consortium organisations across the UK will be required, as well as on site work in Edinburgh during the festivals. The role is offered on a full time basis (35hrs p/w), but we will consider flexible arrangements with a minimum equivalent of 28 hours (4 days) per week.
Applications close 10am, Monday 31 January 2022. For more information, and to apply, please visit https://bac.org.uk/our-story/work-with-us/
