Could You Be Our Senior Producer?

In April 2023 Touretteshero became an Arts Council England (ACE) National Portfolio Organisation (NPO). This means we get funding for the next few years to support our creative activities. It also means we’re able to grow our team, making loads of exciting projects possible.

Over the last year we’ve been exploring how we grow, what roles we might need, and the types of skill and experience that would be most useful. We’ve been testing our thinking around this with the help of some brilliant freelances. We’re now excited to be looking for a permanent Senior Producer to join our team.

‘Producer’ can mean different things in different contexts, but at its simplest I think of it as being the person who helps make things happen, doing the organising that helps turn projects from ideas into reality.

We work in different contexts and disciplines. We hold inclusive events, make theatre and film, do practice-based research, deliver workshops and training, and provide solidarity, support and development opportunities for other disabled people and artists. We’re looking for an experienced producer to take on this new leadership role within Touretteshero, someone who’s excited about working as part of a small disabled-led team across a broad range of projects.

The right person for this role will have lots of experience of making things happen and will be confident managing budgets, people, and relationships with partners. This doesn’t have to be experience in producing theatre, it might also include things like managing community projects or events. This is a job for someone who’s committed to removing disabling barriers within arts and cultural spaces, and who feels excited to be working in non-normative ways.

Because Touretteshero is disabled-led, we would really love disabled, neurodiverse/divergent and chronically ill producers to apply. We’re used to removing barriers within our ways of working, including those relating to energy, pain and clinical vulnerability. We take what we call a ‘socialist approach to energy’ — you can read more about what this means here. We’re familiar with Access to Work (AtW) and can assist with both the application process and any ongoing administration. The job pack for this role includes information about the accessibility of our working spaces.

We’re committed to removing other barriers too, so if you are someone with caring responsibilities, have had a career break or a non-normative journey into the arts, please do consider applying.

We want to make sure that our team reflects the communities we work in and would particularly welcome applications from global majority or migrant producers.
