The Marlowe Theatre in Canterbury is one of this country’s most successful large-scale independent theatres, with a 1,200-seat Theatre, a 150-seat Studio and The Marlowe Kit, an 800-year-old building which we plan to transform into a learning centre and heritage experience.

We present a year-round programme of national touring productions across a range of artforms including theatre, dance, opera and music. Since becoming a self-funding independent charitable trust in 2018 we have begun to develop a more mixed economy, with a 5-year plan to commission and produce work at all scales alongside the presented programme. Supporting artists and developing the creative lives of the next generation are central to our mission to be the engine house for the performing arts in our region and to shape the spirit of Kent.

We are seeking an HR Advisor to support our team in developing a culture of learning and nurturing a supported and inclusive workforce. Working with the Strategic Management Team to develop HR Policies and Procedures, ensuring these are communicated and embedded within the organisation.

You will be a CIPD Associate member, above or similar and have experience in delivering HR support and training in a business of scale.

We want to work with people who are passionate about their work, resilient in the face of any challenge that comes their way and supportive of their colleagues.

We are an inclusive employer. We value difference and recruit by merit based on fair and open competition. We welcome candidates from all backgrounds and from all sectors. We are particularly keen to hear from Black and Asian candidates, candidates from a diverse range of backgrounds, and those who identify as D/deaf or disabled.
