Stellar Quines is seeking an innovative and resourceful Artistic Director and Chief Executive Officer to join the company.

We produce award-winning theatre, collaborate to deliver artist development programmes, creative learning programmes and continually question and campaign to improve women’s representation in the performing arts sector. As an organisation, we are looking to build on this work and develop our strategy for the years ahead. The Artistic Director and Chief Executive Officer will join us in shaping the future of Stellar Quines. This is a combined role.

What we do is exceptional and reaches beyond the expected. We need a leader who reflects our vision and wants to take it further.

Are you a theatre maker who can work collaboratively with artists, writers, participants, crew, theatre-makers and audiences across Scotland, develop new talent and support women at all stages of their career in theatre? Do you believe in the power of theatre to transform and empower women and girls, particularly those whose voices aren’t usually heard? Can you communicate the importance and impact of our work to a wide range of stakeholders and create meaningful change in the sector and wider society?

If this sounds like a job for you, download a recruitment pack for more information. If you need the recruitment pack provided in another format, please get in touch with / 07951 046446

Stellar Quines is always looking to work with people who believe in our vision and mission. We aim to be representative of all sections of society and actively welcome candidates who are currently under-represented in the performing arts. Job share applications would be very welcome.

Full time (35 hours a week)
Salary: £38,000
