Assistant Producer

Permanent role

35 hours per week 

Salary: starting £30,440 – 34,240 per annum (Inclusive of Inner London Weighting) 

We're currently recruiting for two Assistant Producers to join our busy Theatre and Dance team.  
Our two theatre spaces (Barbican Theatre capacity 1152 and the Pit capacity 150) play host to the finest international theatre, dance and performance by artists and companies who are challenging the idea of what theatre can be.  

Across the programme we invest in performers who are doing something different, whether that be by collaborating with our artistic associates, through commissioning new work or by inviting guest artists to curate Pit Parties. We help artists at an early stage of their career with our Open Labs scheme and the Oxford Samuel Beckett Theatre Trust Award. With offsite events in east London, reduced price tickets for 14–25 year-olds through Young Barbican and our offer for families and younger theatre-goers we aim to inspire more people to discover and love theatre.

The Assistant Producers will support the Head of Theatre and Producers on the delivery of the year-round, world-class programme of international and national, live and digital, performance work.   You will have the opportunity to get involved in a wide range of projects and be a highly valued member of our small and friendly team. You'll be a motivated team player, who can demonstrate a genuine passion for the performing arts, with at least two years’ experience or relevant transferable skills, working in a theatre or dance administrative or producing environment.   You will also be able to enjoy working independently and proactively on designated projects.  

Formal education qualifications are not required for this role and job share applications are welcome.
