Stan’s Cafe Recruiting: General Manager

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Disappointingly, we have – with our board – decided that in the current global situation we are going to suspend recruitment of the post of General Manager. We will wait for a few months to see how the situation develops and what the best course of action is within its context. We will contact everyone who has applied or enquired about the job individually, and we will share updates as soon as we can.

Keep safe and well and keep looking out for each other.

We’re looking for a full-time General Manager to join our team. The General Manager is the lynchpin of Stan’s Cafe, managing artistic projects, marketing and our core financial and operational functions. We are looking for someone friendly and adaptable, who is interested in all aspects of running a contemporary performance company.

You may not currently work in the theatre sector but will be passionate about supporting artists to create new work, and in developing and maintaining the organisational structures in order for that to happen.
