China Plate Theatre are recruiting for maternity cover for our Engagement and Participation Producer for a fixed term appointment for 9 months.

The role of the Engagement and Participation Producer is to ensure that engagement and participation activity supports the delivery of China Plate’s vision, mission and business plan. Our engagement and participation programme provides inspiring and impactful opportunities for the next generation of audiences and theatre makers to engage with the performing arts.

The role is key in supporting China Plate’s ambitions in audience development through embedded participation and education initiatives, including our work with schools nationally, young people in the Midlands and community engagement work with an emphasis on co-creation and collaboration with targeted groups.

China Plate is committed to inclusion and equal opportunities in the workplace and we actively encourage applicants from all backgrounds, of different ages, genders, social and economic backgrounds, ethnicities, religions and sexual orientations, and from people with and without disabilities.

Our recruitment process is open to all, but we are particularly keen to hear from applicants who have faced racism, discrimination and/or cultural barriers due to their ethnicity, disability or D/deafness, as these groups are currently underrepresented in our team and the wider theatre sector.

All candidates will be notified by phone or email to confirm whether they have been shortlisted.

Interviews for shortlisted candidates will be held on the 22nd of March on Zoom.

Once appointed we would look for the Engagement and Participation Producer (Maternity Cover) to begin mid-May. Please note our current Engagement and Participation Producer is likely to be finishing on the 14th of May and we will aim for a week handover. China Plate will consider alternative handover proposals.
