Producer, Learning and Participation


£30,450 per annum, Fixed Term Contract until August 2022

Full-time (5 out of 7 days (40 hours) per week)

Ballet and opera capture the deepest emotions and tell universal stories. The Royal Opera House (ROH) wants to share these life-changing artforms and their power to move and excite with as many people as we can.

Our extensive Learning and Participation programme encourages participation and deepens learning, offering people of all ages the chance to discover and question our artforms and create their own responses to opera and ballet. Our ambition is to ignite interest and passion in our artforms, open up opportunities to diversify the talent pipeline and build a culturally literate and creative nation.

On completion of the Open Up building project, we have transformed the ROH`s public spaces, animating them with performances, workshops, festivals and exhibitions to engage visitors with the richness of stories from opera and ballet and our past and present. In November 2018 we launched the Daytime Events and Festivals programme and attracted 37,000 participants in our first year.

We are now looking for a Producer to co-ordinate the full programme, play an active role in its development and manage the team. Working closely with the Director of Learning and Participation and General Manager, the successful postholder will lead the organisational, financial and managerial aspects of the programme.

The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate the following:

  • Significant experience of producing events or festivals in a cultural organisation, preferably in a multi-arts context, demonstrating some experience of at least one of the art forms of opera and ballet;
  • Excellent project management skills with strong organisational, administrative, budgeting, planning and time management skills and proven ability to work on several projects simultaneously to meet deadlines;
  • Strong leadership skills with proven ability to influence, act decisively and problem solve;
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills with fluent English and experience of report writing;
  • Track record of nurturing successful relationships with internal and external stakeholders.
