Southbank Centre is the UK’s largest arts centre and one of the UK’s top five visitor attractions, occupying a 17 acre site that sits in the midst of London’s most vibrant cultural quarter on the South Bank of the Thames. We exist to present great cultural experiences that bring people together and we achieve this by providing the space for artists to create and present their best work and by creating a place where as many people as possible can come together to experience bold, unusual and eye-opening work. We want to take people out of the everyday, every day.
The site has an extraordinary creative and architectural history stretching back to the 1951 Festival of Britain. Southbank Centre is made up of the Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room and Hayward Gallery as well as being home to the National Poetry Library and the Arts Council Collection. It is also home to four Resident Orchestras (London Philharmonic Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra, London Sinfonietta and Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment) and four Associate Orchestras (Aurora Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra, Chineke! Orchestra and National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain).
We are looking for two Deputy Production Managers to play a key role in the Production Management team at Southbank Centre. They will work closely with the Technical Director and Production Managers to ensure the smooth delivery of the programme to the highest standards. Collaborating with colleagues across the organisation on projects of all scales in any of the three auditoriums, foyers, function rooms and outside spaces, the Deputy Production Managers will ensure the effective use of systems and resources to deliver the technical elements of allocated events.
Successful candidates will have a proactive, flexible and collaborative attitude to work and demonstrable experience of working on the delivery of live events at a professional level and have experience of managing and organising the work of a team. You will possess good IT skills, including the ability to use MS Office packages, Google mail, drives and docs, and ideally CAD.
