Assistant Producer (Incubator & Level G)

Barbican Centre
Grade C
12 month fixed-term contract, part time (3 days, 21 hours per week)
Salary: £29,250 - £32,910 (including £6,390 Inner London weighting).

We are looking for an Assistant Producer to assist with the delivery of the ‘Level G’ programme of public events and installations at the Barbican. 

The majority of the Barbican’s arts activity take places in our core venues: a concert hall, two art galleries, two theatres, and three cinemas -- each of which is programmed by a team of art-form specialists. Between these venues lie a series of public foyers where the majority of the programme you will be working on finds a home. 

In these foyers, our ‘Level G Programme’ of installations, residencies and public events sits side-by-side with the multitude of communities who rely on these spaces: freelancers working on laptops, students revising, parents and babies playing, audiences rushing around with coffees and beers before concerts and conferences... It’s a busy, messy, well-used, and occasionally chaotic environment. We’ve included links to recent projects from our programme in the Job Information Pack. 

We are looking for a practical individual with good administrative skills to work with us on a range of shared and often collaborative projects. You should be flexible in your approaches to project management, as our programme is varied in scope and changes season-to-season. You should also be a sensitive negotiator, as you will be managing relationships with a large range internal stakeholders and external partners. 

An interest in collaborative, socially-engaged, or research-driven arts practice is desirable. Experience in developing audiences, or working in community settings, will also prove beneficial in this role. If you have any questions, please email
