Also they’re looking for a new Production Manager, so if you’re keen check out the selection criteria.
We are looking for an energetic Production Manager to join our full-time team. This role is responsible for all production issues before, during and after the Festival, manages the production team as well as being involved in the operational needs of the office all year round.
Reporting to the Festival Director, the successful applicant will have a solid background in/or capacity for public event management; working to a budget; contract negotiation; managing and working in a team consisting largely of volunteers; well-developed communication skills; good IT skills; and a demonstrated ability to work with minimal supervision and get a job done. Knowledge of the National Folk Festival would be an advantage, but not essential.
