Artsadmin has three open opportunities: Head of Finance, Producer – Artist Projects and Artsadmin Trustee recruitment.


Head of Finance, part-time

Artsadmin is looking for a new Head of Finance to join our small finance team. If you thrive on variety and would like work for a leading performing arts charity that specialises in producing new work to tour to venues and festivals in the UK and worldwide, we’d love to hear from you.

We are a friendly, values-led organisation with an impressive track-record in European co-production. Environmental sustainability and accessibility are at the heart of how we run Toynbee Studios in London’s east end, providing rehearsal spaces for artists whose projects span theatre, dance, opera, music, live art, and interdisciplinary practice. Our artist support programme offers professional development opportunities to artists throughout their careers and our creative engagement programme provides innovative projects for children, young people and adults.

Artsadmin Trustees

In spring 2020, we recruited for new Trustees and want to keep the door open to people who missed this recruitment round but are interested in joining our Board of Trustees in the future. We have been working to increase the diversity of the board – seeking to recruit board members who are disabled people and people of colour as we acknowledge that Artsadmin needs to better reflect the diversity of the UK as it moves forward.

Our Board enjoy working as part of a supportive but rigorous team, and are passionate about the arts and the power they have to change lives. We expect that our Trustees know our work and the contemporary arts sector that Artsadmin is part of, but if you haven’t seen work that Artsadmin produces live or visited our home in Toynbee Studios, and are interested in becoming a Trustee regardless, do get in touch. This is a voluntary role but training is offered and reasonable travel expenses for travel from outside of London and access costs can be covered.

If you want to have an informal chat about the Trustee role, please email Deborah Chadbourn, Executive Director, deborah@artsadmin.co.uk or Róise Goan, Artistic Director, roise@artsadmin.co.uk.


Our anti-racist work on recruitment and retention

We are a friendly team comprising around 30 people where everyone’s contribution is valued. However, we acknowledge both that Artsadmin is currently a majority white organisation and our need to become an organisation that reflects the diversity of the country around us. As a result, we are currently developing an anti-racist strategy as part of a commitment and ongoing process to create a diverse and inclusive workplace. For recruitment, we are committed to ensuring that there is:

  • A person of colour on the interview panel
  • A chance to meet some of the team at interview stage to give insight into the organisational culture, as well as a chance to ask questions outside the interview

Once in the role, any successful candidate who is a person of colour will have access to an external coach or mentor to provide support in a majority white community. This support will be paid for by Artsadmin.

If you have any questions please email admin@artsadmin.co.uk. This email account is regularly checked.

Access support

Access support is available for all applications, including alternative formats and tailored support. If, for access requirements, you’d prefer to meet one of our team or talk through these guidelines please contact access@artsadmin.co.uk or call 020 7247 5102.
