Producer (Targeted Work) – Maternity Cover
The Lyric Hammersmith is one of the UK’s leading producing theatres. Over its 121 year history it has been responsible for creating some of the UK’s most ground-breaking and acclaimed theatrical productions. At the same time it has gained a national reputation for its work with children and young people. The Lyric reopened in April 2015 following a £20 million capital project which has seen the addition of extensive new facilities aimed at expanding the Lyric’s work with young people, emerging and professional artists across the performing arts. The new Lyric, now home to an innovative partnership of leading arts organisations, has become the largest creative hub for West London. The Lyric’s dual commitment to producing the highest quality contemporary theatre, alongside nurturing the creativity of young people, and the quality, range and scale of its new facilities, make it unique within the theatre ecology of the UK.
The Lyric is currently looking for a Producer (Targeted Work) to provide maternity cover from early January 2017.
The Lyric has an outstanding track-record of working with disadvantaged young people and those at risk of social exclusion, with a focus on West London. Our Targeted Work is a key strand of our Young Lyric programme and consists of projects that are specifically targeted at young people who are at risk including, those that are not in employment education and training (NEET), who are young offenders, who are living in care or who are experiencing any other circumstances that put them at risk of social exclusion.
The programme includes our flagship START programme – a six week programme for NEET young people age 16-25 running three times a year; REWIND an intervention programme for young people age 13-16 at risk of exclusion from education; Theatre Works, a weekly drop in session for marginalised young people age 16-25; and numerous bespoke projects which often run in half-terms and holidays. Much of the success of the programme is due to the strength of the relationships the Lyric has with key partner agencies including Children’s Services, Youth Offending Teams, Virtual Schools and Pupil Referral Units.
The successful candidate will be responsible for overseeing the strategic direction and overall delivery of our Targeted Work. They will be expected to produce projects from design to delivery including supporting fundraising; to manage and develop the strategic relationships with relevant external agencies; to manage freelance staff and practitioners to deliver project objectives; and to help participants to find positive progression routes.
