General Manager

Deptford X is looking to appoint a General Manager to join Deptford X alongside our next Director and work in tandem to lead the organisation into its next phase. The successful candidate will be responsible for the operational management of Deptford X and the delivery and development of its ambitious festival and programmes.

The General Manager is integral to the management of Deptford X and the delivery and development of its ambitious programmes. The General Manager works closely with the Director and Board of Trustees as part of a small and supportive team to contribute actively and creatively to the development of the organisation, as well as overseeing daily and organisational operations. The General Manager supervises office management, communications, administration, financial management, staffing, programme delivery logistics, reporting and evaluation; and works collaboratively with the Director on strategic and financial development, including embedded environmental sustainability. In addition to the above, the General Manager will lead on developing and dynamically integrating Deptford X’s access and care agenda.

We are looking for someone with experience of managing organisational operations, preferably with an integrated approach to access and diversity, and an understanding and knowledge of financial development strategies. We would like to appoint someone with shared values: someone who understands the importance of difference, creativity, experimentation and learning within art; who has a commitment to local artistic ambition and making a positive contribution to local communities in the area; and who is committed to equity, accessibility and care.

Deptford X is committed to an holistic approach to equality and diversity and acknowledge that certain sectors of society are underrepresented in our sector. We are actively working towards correcting this in the ways available to us. We are committed to providing equal opportunities to everyone regardless of their background and are particularly keen to receive applications from those who identify as from marginalised backgrounds including (but not limited to) age, racialisation, gender identity, sexuality, religion, disability, class identity. We will be pleased to make reasonable adjustments to meet your needs in order to undertake this role if you are successful in your application.
