Job Description & Person Specification:

Early Opera Company, under the artistic directorship of Christian Curnyn, is seeking an organised, self-motivated and multi-skilled person with the passion to develop and manage this award-winning company. 

The General Manager is contracted to develop and deliver an ambitious strategic plan and will have responsibility for growing and diversifying the company from the current average of 4-5 projects per year. We aim to fulfil a broader range of UK and European concerts and staged work, broadcasts/streaming, family concerts and launch the Emerging Artists Programme. 

The General Manager is responsible for artistic administration, marketing and communications, fundraising, financial management and governance.

This is an excellent opportunity for a talented General Manager to expand this charitable organisationís reach and scope. 

The right person will be confident in developing new projects with external partners, have exceptional inter-personal skills to nurture both musicians and donors, the organisational ability to produce large-scale concerts and a professional development programme, the creative nous to reach an increased range of audiences through both online and offline methods, and the financial capability to create, manage and report on budgets accurately for this registered charity. 

The General Manager is a freelance post for a maximum of 3 days a week and 42 weeks per year; the fee offered is £175 per day. For further information about Early Opera Company and the post, and to find out how to apply, please visit 

Applications are sought by 5pm on Monday 22 October 2018. 

Shortlisted applicants will be contacted soon afterwards for interviews on 7 or 8 November. 

Referees will be contacted, and basic DBS check conducted, only after a successful interview. 

We hope that the successful applicant will be able to take up this contract asap.
