Permanent - Part Time (22 hours per week)
£14,400 pro rata (£24,000 FTE)

There’s never been a better time to join The Marlowe. We have come through the Covid crisis, our audiences are back, and we have been recognised as Theatre of the Year 2022 in The Stage Awards for our innovative approach to supporting our industry’s recovery. Our sights are now set on an ambitious future. At the same time, we are investing in our People Plan to ensure our high calibre team are rewarded and supported.

The Marlowe, Canterbury is a large-scale, independent theatre, with a 1,200-seat Theatre, a 150-seat Studio and The Marlowe Kit, home of our youth company. 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, engaging with our communities, 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 a Learning and Participation (L & P) Communities Co-ordinator to develop sustainable and supportive working relationships with community partners and participants to pro-actively deliver across a range of community focused projects that are accessible and inclusive, whilst underpinning our drive for audience development.

The Communities Co-ordinator will need to be people and details focused, collaborative, with experience of working with community groups, while valuing health and safety, safeguarding and best practice in community arts.

You will have administrative, project and budget management experience and an understanding of the needs of people from a wide range of backgrounds and lived experiences.

This role requires a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check.

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.

The Marlowe is an inclusive employer. We value difference and recruit by merit based on fair and open competition.

We welcome candidates from all backgrounds regardless of gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, age, neurodiversity, disability status, citizenship, or any other aspect which makes them unique. We want to hear from all sectors including veterans.

We are a Creative Green organisation and are committed to acting on climate change and environmental sustainability.

Interviews will take place Monday 26 and Tuesday 27 October.
