Assistant Producer Internship (Paid)

In 2016 Mid Pennine Arts will celebrate our 50th anniversary, and we will mark the occasion with an exciting range of new projects. To help deliver this programme we seek a new person to join our team for a period of six months.

MPA is looking for a special individual to make a real contribution to developing and delivering this evolving portfolio.  We are offering a new role, as Assistant Producer, working alongside one or more experienced project managers.  Our Project Managers have a lot of creative freedom in how they develop projects, and this will apply also to our new team member.

We are looking for a young graduate (or someone with equivalent work experience) keen to develop a career in socially engaged arts. This will be a challenging role, but a brilliant development opportunity for the right person. You will be able to demonstrate the capacity or the potential to enrich and refresh our practice, to take responsibility for developing specific elements of extended projects and possibly even to start originating project opportunities of your own. There is some scope therefore for shaping the role and its workload to suit the skills and developmental needs of the individual appointed.

You can find out more about the wide range of our projects by visiting our website and our Vimeo and Flickr pages.
