A new 12-month full-time position as part of LADA’s Next Steps Scheme for emerging Live Art administrators and producers

LADA is a Centre for Live Art. We are the UK’s only fully dedicated Live Art development organization. We produce projects, publications, resources and opportunities for those who make, watch, research, study, teach, produce, present, write about and archive Live Art.

The Coordinator will work as part of the small team at LADA to manage and coordinate LADA’s office and resources, and contribute to the effectiveness of LADA’s activities. The Coordinator will play a vital role in supporting LADA to best meet the opportunities and challenges it faces. This is an opportunity for a dynamic individual who is at the start of their career to join LADA and contribute to its future.

  • This opportunity is particularly aimed at individuals who plan to develop a career in the arts, whether as administrator, manager, fundraiser, producer and/or curator. This one-year position is intended to enhance the successful applicant’s prospects for future employment.
  • We particularly welcome applications from (1) recent arts graduates whose circumstances mean they cannot afford to pay for training or whose background and family circumstances might make it difficult for them to take up unpaid positions, and (2) non-arts graduates who can demonstrate an interest in and commitment to developing a career in the arts, whose circumstances mean they cannot afford to pay for training or whose background and family circumstances might make it difficult for them to take up unpaid positions. Additional information on these criteria is provided in the job description.
  • We particularly encourage applications from those with an interest in, enthusiasm for, and some experience of, Live Art and related experimental performance based practices. 

The Coordinator will be employed on a full-time basis for a 12-month period, at an annual salary of £17,500. 

Deadline for applications: 12 noon on Monday November 21, 2016.
