£21,000 - £23,000 per annum pro rata.
Fixed term 12-month contract with the possibility of renewal.
Volcano Theatre Company is seeking to recruit a new member of staff who will have responsibility for the general administrative functions of the company and its premises. The position is based at the company premises at 229 High Street, Swansea.
The successful candidate will be a versatile, reliable and confident individual with excellent administrative and interpersonal skills. She or he will be based in the Swansea area and able to demonstrate a commitment to the area and a working knowledge of the city and its cultural, social and economic environments.
The position requires the ability to work to deadlines and to respond in a flexible way to the changing demands of a small, busy arts company with a broad range of activities. Knowledge of the theatre sector is not essential, but we are looking for an interested, broad-minded person who learns quickly and values excellence and distinctiveness in the arts and creative industries.
The company ethos is forthright, democratic and inclusive. It is light on hierarchy but strong on communication and responsibility. Company members share everyday tasks in an equal manner, take primary responsibility for their own job development and are expected actively to help shape the working environment by contributing their ideas and using initiative within their roles.
The Senior Administrator will work closely with the Marketing & Communications Manager, Admin & Marketing Assistant and Book-keeper, and will report directly to the Artistic Director and to the Board.
