ASSITEJ International has been awarded a major grant from the European Union for their three-year project, Theatre & Performing Arts for Young Audiences: Building Collective Resilience. This grant recognises the importance of the performing arts in the lives of children and young people and the work ASSITEJ does in connecting and unifying practitioners all over the world.
In order to implement this project, ASSITEJ International is recruiting a Project Producer & Co-ordinator. Reporting to the Secretary General & Projects Director, the Project Producer & Co-ordinator is a key member of the ASSITEJ International team, working with fellow staff members and the Executive Committee to support, coordinate, communicate, and deliver the work packages that relate to this role, in collaboration and coordination with the whole team. This is a busy role, providing essential support to growing Secretariat activities in addition to supporting the launch of innovative new projects and collaborations with artistic and cultural partners.
The role offers a stimulating mixture of planning, coordination and hands-on ‘doing’, and offers excellent opportunities for arts producing and non-profit programme management. It combines a mixture of people-facing engagement work, administrative planning and support, and creative communication approaches. The role requires someone sociable and compassionate, a practical problem-solver, able to engage with ASSITEJ International’s broad membership in a caring and inclusive manner. You must be organised, have excellent communication skills, and feel comfortable handling many projects, deadlines, and collaborators at a time.
The office is based in Copenhagen but flexible working (both time and geographic location) is possible and can be negotiated. The main working language will be English. The role is initially available on 60% FTE (full-time equivalent) basis on a fixed-term contract for 12 months with a probationary period of 3 months – and holds the possibility for extension of the contract period and work hours. Salary information is available upon request. The employment may be made through ASSITEJ Denmark. Start of employment is August/September 2022.
