Artistic Co-ordinator

Location: The Royal Court Theatre, London 

Contract: Full time/permanent 

Salary: £29,246.88 (gross) per annum 



The Royal Court Theatre has an exciting opportunity for someone to join the Artistic Team as Artistic Co-ordinator. 


This new role will be a core part of the Royal Court’s new artistic team, with a focus on high-quality co-ordination and administration to underpin all our work. The job focuses particularly on managing key processes around open script submissions and artistic invitations; as well as planning, practical and organisational support for our work with writers and delivering other artistic events. 

The role will manage a high volume of correspondence and support multiple strands of activity, with strong organisational skills and attention to detail vital in ensuring our wider artistic mission stays on track. While much of the focus of the role is administrative and procedural, this will also be an unrivalled opportunity for someone early in their career to learn about the workings of a leading new writing theatre and be part of shaping our next steps. 


The successful candidate will have: 


  • Working knowledge of and interest in new writing and the theatre sector more broadly.
  • Experience of an administrative and organisational role in a busy, creative environment, whether in the theatre or broader cultural sector.
  • Excellent self-motivated organisational and communication skills, with a systematic approach to administrative tasks and excellent eye for detail.
  • The ability to juggle multiple priorities, tasks and IT systems; and to respond quickly and efficiently within a fast paced working environment.
