You will play an important role in developing the organisation’s strategic priorities and delivering key aspects where appropriate. This is a big and exciting job. You will be crucial in ensuring that HOME is a well-managed third sector business with a growing annual turnover in excess of £6.5m creating great artistic experiences for our audiences and delivering significant social and economic benefit for the city region.

We opened to the public in May 2015.  The new building and new organisation has changed the artistic landscape in the city and made an important contribution to artistic practice nationally and internationally. HOME has established a distinctive programming and production cycle of high quality cross-artform, theatre, art and film in the city, region and UK known for high quality work in the constituent art forms and for developing practice that explores the intersection of these. The company is financially stable, well governed and has very strong civic support.

You will be part of an exciting forward-looking organisation working with a wide range of artists, partners and stakeholders. Our team is enthusiastic, motivated and engaged so expect to be challenged and rewarded.  This truly is a rare and unique opportunity.
