Job description

Farnham Maltings are looking to recruit an Executive Director to work alongside the CEO on all aspects of the delivery and development of Farnham Maltings as an organisation committed to enriching the cultural lives of the people of the town and region.   

Dear Applicant,

Thank you for your enquiry about the post of Executive Director.

A little about us: The Maltings has operated as an arts and community centre for Farnham since the early 70s. There is a core of successful activities – a contemporary theatre programme, film and satellite broadcasts, music and comedy events and a flourishing craft festival programme.  We are a well-used and popular set of buildings – over 400,000 people attend each year - we have strong and supportive relationships with Arts Council and our Local Authorities, a hugely capable staff team and a financially resilient business model. Besides our work in Farnham, we have developed a regional role through house, a 180-venue network across the southeast and lead a growing international strand of work through caravan. We are also the driver of Farnham becoming a world city of crafts.

The past 18 months has thrown up uncertainty, challenges and, dare I say, opportunities. We know to be successful we will need to adapt, learn, respond to new possibilities, make the best of our resources, work collaboratively and remain confident in our purpose. Our hope is that this role - which is an evolution of the previous deputy director post - will help us with that ambition.

Hopefully the attached job description will give you a good sense of the main duties of the role. We are looking for somebody who is confident in their own abilities, someone who enjoys the arts, who can draw the best out of the people they work with, is keen to take on new challenges and wants to play a part in shaping the next stage of Farnham Maltings.

If you wish to apply, please complete the Application Form and Equal Opportunities Monitoring form found on our website and return it to our Human Resources Department by the deadline of 4th February 2022.

If you have particular questions feel free to contact me, and if you decide to apply, good luck.
