Closing Date: Aug. 27, 2019
Headlong is a theatre company with a big imagination, and touring is at the heart of what we do. Our purpose is to create a highly-engaged contemporary programme of new work, classics and 20th century revivals, and take these bold and exhilarating shows around the UK and beyond.
Over the past 4 years, over a million people have seen our productions. In this time we’ve had thousands of performances at over 50 theatres around the world. Some of these shows have won awards and transferred to the West End, including People, Places & Things, The Nether, 1984, This House and Labour of Love. We commission as many new plays and adaptations as any theatre company in the country. We’ve created Headlong Futures, which unites communities across the UK through theatre and Headlong Origins, a unique development programme for artists outside of London. Our industry-leading digital and film productions have also reached millions and have the potential for even greater reach.
This year has seen our Artistic Director Jeremy Herrin direct All My Sons starring Sally Field and Bill Pullman to critical acclaim at London’s Old Vic Theatre, and in September Haydn Gwynne stars in Hedda Tesman at Chichester Festival Theatre and the Lowry, Salford in a new play by Cordelia Lynn and directed by Headlong’s Associate Artistic Director Holly Race Roughan. In the spring we will produce an ambitious and large-scale new play at the Lyric Hammersmith, followed by a UK tour.
In order to support the company while it’s producing this ever-expanding body of work, we are seeking an enthusiastic and efficient Marketing & Communications Co-ordinator. The main purpose of this new role is to provide key communications support across our marketing campaigns and audience development schemes, working alongside our partners and co-producers.
In liaison with the Executive Director you will work closely with our press agency, ensuring that Headlong’s marketing campaigns are supported and the Company’s brand and vision are represented throughout all communications platforms.
The successful candidate will be meticulously organised, have a pro-active attitude and a keen interest in the arts and theatre.
