  • HR & Organisational Development– with experience of power sharing models in the Arts or Third Sector.
  • Professional Theatre Expertise – experience of co-creating.
  • Community Organising – ideally based in one of the following areas: Portslade, Bevendean & Moulsecoomb, Whitehawk, Tarner.

Brighton People’s Theatre is committed to diversity and inclusion. We welcome interest from all sectors and backgrounds and particularly welcome applications from those identifying as working class.


  • Supporting a growing theatre company with excellent connections to the arts sector in Brighton and Hove and beyond
  • Supporting the senior staff in their activities
  • Supporting BPT to evaluate our own ways of working and share this to encourage wider learning.

When do I need to be available?

Details Time Commitment • The full Board meets quarterly, plus one Away Day. • Sub-Committees may meet in addition to this commitment. • Ad hoc meetings or conference calls are occasionally convened throughout the year. • Enquiries from senior management are emailed out to individuals, or the whole Board, on a semi-regular basis and Board Members are expected to respond swiftly. • It is hoped that Board members will see as much of Brighton People’s Theatre work as possible each year and attend events when their schedules allow.
