Engagement Manager (Maternity Cover)
Manchester International Festival
Manchester International Festival (MIF) invites great artists from across the globe to create extraordinary new work for the Festival, which is staged every two years at venues and found spaces across Manchester. Our future home is The Factory, a world-class cultural space being built in the heart of the city, where we’ll present a year-round programme and artists will be able to develop work of huge ambition and scale that they might not be able to anywhere else.
The Engagement Manager creates opportunities for residents across Greater Manchester to collaborate alongside some of the world’s leading artists in some of our flagship commissions, which can range from large scale dance activities to in depth projects that involve making and creating with people. Central to the role is ensuring all participants have a high quality, positive and memorable experience.
Closing date 11 April2021
Interviews will take place w/c 26 April 2021
With second interviews on w/c 30 April 2021
We particularly encourage people from Greater Manchester and underrepresented backgrounds to apply.
The role will require the post holder to be based remotely initially in-line with government guidelines, however we expect the post holder to be based in Manchester nearer to the delivery of MIF '21.
