Draper's Hall General Manager/Programmer

Location: Coventry
Organisation: Historic Coventry Trust
Reference: HCOVT009

We are looking for an experienced, cultural events venue General Manager/Programmer to set up and run the finest new events’ space in Coventry at the Grade II* listed Drapers’ Hall.

Historic Coventry Trust is an ambitious and entrepreneurial charity with a mission to act as the champion of all heritage at risk in Coventry and to become its permanent guardian.  We are a pioneering ‘heritage development trust’ on a journey to create a self-sufficient charity using revenue generated from property income to sustain a portfolio of 22 heritage assets which are being transferred to our care from Coventry City Council.  You have the opportunity to join us at a formative stage – helping to create the projects, activities, teams and culture that will ensure we succeed in restoring and reusing Coventry’s heritage for the future.

As our repair and restoration works at the Regency Drapers’ Hall are drawing to a close we are recruiting for a creative, energetic and experienced manager of cultural venues to prepare and open Drapers’ Hall to the public for City of Culture year, and to ensure that there is a compelling programme of music and events which brings life back to the building. Initially for a 6-month set up period, this role is intended to be long-term subject to funding.

If you have experience in setting up and running music and cultural venues, creating and delivering compelling and financially sustainable cultural programmes and managing teams of staff and volunteers, then this is an opportunity for you.
