Coventry2021 Coventry City of Culture Trust

We are seeking to bolster our Production and Event Operations Team in preparation for the second half of our cultural year, with numerous high-profile events planned throughout the spring and into summer of 2022.

The Trust is looking to appoint up to four Event Operations Managers line managed by the Head of Events Operations. Appointments will be starting in January 2022 running until June 2022, with the possibility for further extension.

The postholders will work in collaboration with Producing, Visitor Experience and other key City of Culture departments.

The postholders will each lead one of our four Production Units as the overall project manager for a series of events across the programme varying in scale from small to major, and across artforms, in both outdoor, traditional, and found spaces.

Our programme is diverse in its scale and content, and the postholders will be expected to be able to work across a diverse range of projects, including events in community settings as well as large scale event production environments, both indoors and outdoors.

These roles will each line manage a dedicated Production Manager for each Production Unit, and work closely with a dedicated Visitor Experience Manager, Technical Manager, and alongside support from the Production Coordination Team.

The postholders will be expected to work in person, in Coventry on a weekly basis, however flexible working arrangements can be arranged in line with organisational and event delivery requirements.
