We are looking for a driven, organised and resourceful coordinator to assist with event planning & delivery, business development, sales and administrative support as we develop an exceptional range of commercial services at Contact.

Contact is a leading national contemporary theatre and arts organisation based in Manchester, with young people at the heart of everything we do. We work locally, nationally and internationally to provide life-changing opportunities for the next generation of creative leaders, artists and audiences, redefining theatre in the process. We produce and present a professional programme of outstanding performances, events and festivals in our building, surprising places and virtual spaces, for a young and highly diverse audience.

This is an exciting time for Contact, with plans for a £6.5m capital re-development under way which will secure the future of Contact’s vital work with young people across Greater Manchester for the next 20 years.

As we prepare to move back into our Oxford Road home, we’re growing our commercial operation to support our core activity.

Our capital project will afford us the opportunity to develop a distinctive events & hires offer, entering the corporate hospitality sector and leasing office space, as well as hosting weddings and private functions. Additionally, we’re looking to expand our retail activity both in-venue and online.

As industry leaders across multiple aspects of governance and practice, we are also evolving our consultancy, training and facilitation services to create supplementary revenue streams.

Contact has a long-standing commitment to diversity in its programming, producing, staffing and community engagement. We actively seek applications from the widest range of applicants.
