View vacancy detailsbutton to expand vacancy details

We are looking for a senior colleague with a deep and broad experience of international dance programming to join a strong and supportive team in a world class arts organisation.

When artists and audiences talk about dance at Sadler’s Wells, they use the words: ‘innovative, exciting and risk-taking’. Whilst the creation of the new is part of our DNA, we hold fast today to the vision that Lilian Baylis instilled here almost a century ago: that great art should belong to everybody.  

This is an exciting time in the theatre’s history as we work towards opening a fourth venue in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in east London in 2022. This is a new role. Primarily based at Sadler's Wells, London, the Director of Programming will work with Alistair Spalding to programme Sadler’s Wells stages and lead the Programming department during this exciting period of expansion.  
This role offers the opportunity to bring your ideas, passion, knowledge and experience to Sadler’s Wells.

Interviews will take place on Friday 8 February 2019.
