Who we’re looking for 

You will be an experienced and effective producer, highly motivated to bring energy and vision to the delivery of Common Wealth’s productions, management and organizational ambitions. You will be passionate about the work we make and able to get under the skin of each project and why and how we make it. We see each play as a campaign and we’re looking for a Producer who will be inventive and creative, having ideas about how we get messages out through partnerships, marketing, digital and other approaches. You will be a skilled fundraiser, able to champion and articulate the work we make and how we make it. 

You will be part of a small team that is delivering high-quality contemporary theatre to communities across the UK and internationally. The ability to work independently is vital, as is the confidence to deal with urgent matters decisively on the company’s behalf. A sensitivity to the creative process is essential, and the Producer will be crucial for protecting creative time for the company.  

We welcome applications from everyone and particularly encourage applicants who are usually under-represented in the theatre industry.
