XTRAX is seeking an experienced General Manager to underpin the operations of our small, hardworking team and to assist us in the delivery of our work across our range of projects and events.

The post-holder will take an overview of the work plan of the organisation taking responsibility for financial management and reporting, contract management, organisational planning and staffing and supervision of all aspects of the organisation’s administrative functions.

The post-holder will also take a lead on the financial management of our major project, the management of the Without Walls consortium, a commissioning and touring partnership of 19 outdoor festivals that has recently been made a National Portfolio Organisation (NPO) of Arts Council England.

This is a senior post in a well-established creative company. It would suit an ambitious candidate with excellent organisational skills keen to take on a challenge and to make an impact within a dynamic and entrepreneurial organisation. The ideal post-holder will have at least considerable experience in the arts, experience in managing budgets and reporting at a senior level, an interest in outdoor arts and an eye for developing creative opportunities.

The post holder will be required to support the Director in reporting funders, to the Boards of XTRAX and of Without Walls, as well as senior managers of all our project partners, and so must be confident in working at a senior level in organisations.

A full overview of the job description and the person specifications can be found in the recruitment document above.
