This is an exciting time to be joining the Royal Exchange Theatre, as we reopen our building and welcome visitors back to see a show or take part in a range of activities on or off our site.

We emerge from Covid-19 as a new organisation with communities at our heart. We’ll engage with all communities, learning what it means to be a theatre in the post pandemic world and bring new relevance to audiences and participants.

Over the past eighteen months, like the entire theatre industry, the Royal Exchange has gone through significant changes and we face unique challenges as we recover and reinvent ourselves in the very different world we are now in. We are therefore seeking a dynamic and driven individual who is interested and excited in being part of the journey of us re-building for the future. This role will provide a unique  opportunity to be a vital part of a team that will see the Royal Exchange reopen and invite the communities of Greater Manchester and beyond to once more, come together and experience the liveness of exhilarating and daring stories from incredible artists and voices.

In the long-term, this role requires the individual to be living in the Northwest (or at a reasonable commutable location) but we are open to exploring hybrid working models in the short term.

We will also consider job share proposals.


This role is a key role within the Making Team, the Making Team administrator provides administrative support for the Making Team across the technical, production, producing and programming aspects of the team’s work.

Working closely with the Director of Programme & Producing, Producing Lead & Head of Production and Technical, the Making Team Administrator will support the team in all areas of administration.
