Opportunities at China Plate

Training & Development Producer

  • Icon/Artist Copy 3 Created with Sketch. Birmingham, West Midlands
  • Closing date: 2:00pm, 23rd September 2022

We’re hiring for a brand new role – our Training and Development Producer!

In this role, you’ll nurture people, relationships, and ideas, and be part of a team of Producers who make creative projects happen.

You will manage The Optimists, China Plate’s producing training programme, as well as other initiatives designed to support young and/or new arts producers. You’ll build and sustain connections with people and organisations in Birmingham and beyond. And you’ll be on the lookout for creative ideas that China Plate can help to develop.

This role could suit someone with a background in theatre and arts producing – but this isn’t essential. If you have worked in training, in developing people’s skills and ideas, or in organising projects in community settings then we would love to hear from you.

This is a full-time role with a salary of £27,300 per year. We also welcome applications from people who would prefer it as a 4-day role (pro rata salary £21,840), and to job shares. You’ll be based in our Birmingham office, with a flexible working policy.

We’re hiring an Administrator!

In this role, you’ll be helping us to keep organised as we make things happen.

You might have done a similar job before, or this might be your first role. Either way, we’re looking for someone who wants to grow with us. China Plate is a producing studio based in Birmingham and working across the UK. As an arts charity, we help people to make creative projects happen – from theatre shows, to audio anthologies, to bus stop galleries.

This role would suit someone with good attention to detail, who enjoys organisation. You’ll be an important part of our friendly team, making sure our Producers have the support they need, looking after our office, and working with our Executive Director on day-to-day financial and administrative tasks. We want to work in ways that are inclusive, caring, and environmentally sustainable.

If you’d like to work in a creative office and learn more about how organisations are run, we’d love to hear from you. Our Administrator role would be a great fit for someone whose next steps are in Administration, Finance, or HR, or who would be interested in becoming a General Manager or Executive Director of a company.
