Executive Director
Artsadmin is seeking a new Executive Director to succeed Gill Lloyd after thirty-three years with the company. Over that time, and working in partnership with Artistic Director Judith Knight (who leaves the company in 2019), Artsadmin has developed into an internationally renowned arts producing organisation.

Artsadmin produces the work of artists across a variety of disciplines – performance, dance, theatre, live arts, installation – from unique large-scale site specific projects to work created for theatres or galleries, across the UK and internationally. In Toynbee Studios the company has established a dynamic centre in Tower Hamlets where new talent is nurtured in its welcoming rehearsal, performance and meeting spaces.

We are looking for an inspiring individual to secure the best possible cultural and physical environment within which the artistic and operational ambitions of the organisation can flourish. The postholder will share Chief Executive responsibilities with the Artistic Director and will have particular overall responsibility for the economic success and sustainability of Artsadmin’s building, supporting artists and tenant companies, and running a performance space and café/bar.
