Paines Plough believes in the power of storytelling and its potential to change lives.
Our mission is to develop, champion and produce exceptional new writing, connecting with people and communities across the UK.
We tour new work that is socially relevant and that speaks to the present moment, empowering communities to take ownership of their own creativity and challenging ourselves to address the imbalance in representation across our industry.
At the centre of everything we do are our values of openness, collaboration and inclusivity, we are unafraid to try new things and we invest time, effort and care in getting to know the communities we visit as if we were local.
We are looking for somebody with a passion for our mission whose values align with ours. We believe in supporting individuals as they progress through our industry, whether a writer, artist or one of our team and we want to support you too in being empowered to be your best self at work with us.
This role is an opportunity for someone to support us in growing our ambitions to reach communities across the UK and beyond. During the pandemic we kept our communities of writers and audiences at the core of our values, delivering new work in new ways. Post Covid we are continuing to deliver ambitious new live work but exploring how our connectivity with audiences can continue to grow and evolve utilising digital means too, playing with how audiences can exist in new spaces.
If your values speak to ours and you are passionate about our mission then please get in touch – we’d love to hear from you.
