Job description

“It’s a lovely feeling, to be so proud of yourself at the end of the day. You go home and your jaw hurts because you’ve smiled so much and you feel absolutely wonderful.”
Streetwise Opera performer

Streetwise Opera is an arts organisation working with the homeless sector to inspire change and empower people to realise their own creative potential.

We are looking to hire a General Manager, who will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the organisation and finances, and will engage in all of the company’s artistic work. This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a pioneering arts organisation at the forefront of social change as it launches its next chapter of work in London, Manchester and Nottingham.

The role is suitable for someone who has worked in an administrative role in an arts organisation, charity or small business and is interested in developing their management career in the arts. We will arrange additional training in key areas if applicants do not yet have the full range of skills and experience required.

If you feel that this could be the job for you, then please get in touch with us to arrange an informal conversation ahead of applying. You can also join one of our introductory webinars on Zoom (details on the vacancy page on our website). Please note that attendance to this session is optional, and will not have any impact on shortlisting.

To apply, download the form on our website and return a completed form by 10pm on Thursday 25 November 2021. Interviews will be held on Monday 6 December.

We seek applications from all ages and backgrounds, particularly those who are underrepresented in the arts and homelessness sectors. We particularly welcome applications from those who are underrepresented in our workforce, including disabled people and/or people from ethnically diverse backgrounds.

We welcome applications from people who have been affected by homelessness. Those who can demonstrate that they meet the essential criteria in the person specification, and have lived experience of homelessness, will be guaranteed a first round interview.
