The North has a well-developed and vibrant theatre infrastructure. The portfolio includes over a third of the country’s building based producing theatres which means there is a significant group of writers, directors, actors and other theatre professionals living and working in the North but also collaborating nationally and internationally.

There are also a number of organisations active across a range of settings who develop programmes and projects inspired by and targeted at the different communities in the North.

This includes assessing financial information, identifying risk and providing feedback on artistic plans. Relationship managers are also expected to work outside their specialism on a range of Arts Council initiatives. The new team member will also form a key part of both the North and national theatre teams. It’s an exciting time to join the Arts Council as we are inviting applications for organisations to join our national portfolio, we have relaunched National Lottery project grants and we have identified a number of priority places for development. Disabled, D/deaf and/or neurodivergent people, those from Black, Asian and Ethnically Diverse backgrounds are underrepresented in our workforce so we particularly encourage applications from people in these groups.
