£45 - £50k pro rata

Following the appointment of Bec Martin as Artistic Director and CEO of New Diorama, we are now seeking a passionate and determined Executive Director to work alongside her and lead us into our next stage of development.

We’re looking for an ambitious, strategic leader ready to roll up their sleeves and establish a strategic vision and shape the plans and programmes to deliver that vision; and who has the insight and appetite for the financial, fundraising and day-to-day operational challenges facing an independent venue and organisation without core public support.

We’re open to different models of working, joint/job share applications, candidates from a range of professional backgrounds; or other combination or partnership models of leadership. We would also consider offering the role on a Joint CEO basis.

Salary: £45,000 per year. Full terms and benefits in the application pack, available here as both a PDF and Word document..

How to apply

Please send your CV and a brief covering letter or email (no more than two pages of A4) explaining why you’d like to apply for this position, and how your experience fits what we’re looking for, to trustees@newdiorama.com.

The deadline for applications is 5pm on Fri 1 December 2023. Expected dates for in-person first round interviews are w/c Mon 1 Jan 2024, with second round planned for Mon 8 Jan 2024.


Please contact our current Executive Director, Will Young, on will@newdiorama.com if you have any access needs that you’d like to discuss either around this application process, interviews or the role itself.
