FESTIVAL CO-ORDINATOR WANTED!
IF: Milton Keynes International Festival has quickly established itself as one of the UK’s landmark festivals. Taking place from 20-29 July 2018, the next Festival will explore the cityscape and parklands of Milton Keynes with a programme that delivers extraordinary events in unusual spaces.
We are looking to recruit a Festival Co-ordinator to start no later than Thursday 1 March 2018 and finish no later than Friday 31 August 2018.
This role is offered as a freelance contract (though other employment options are available). It requires flexibility around working hours, particularly to accommodate the intensive working period in June and July. Fee circa £12,000 (plus VAT if applicable).
Reporting to the Festival Director and working closely with the Festival team, the Festival Co-ordinator needs to have a flexible yet methodical approach with a ‘can do’ attitude. An ability to absorb information quickly, and work with established systems and processes is essential along with an eye for detail. Communication skills - both written and verbal - are key, along with an energetic and enthusiastic personality that thrives on challenging circumstances, demanding tasks and long days.
The role requires local knowledge and an ability to work with a good degree of independence and responsibility whilst keeping in touch with the wider team. A passion for and understanding of outdoor arts festivals, site-specific events and newly commissioned projects is a distinct advantage.
