National Schools Project Manager

Closing date:
7 December 2022


Imaginate is the national organisation in Scotland, which promotes, develops and celebrates theatre and dance for children and young people. We want more children in Scotland to experience work that is deeply engaging, innovative and inspiring. We believe that all children deserve the opportunity to develop their creativity, emotional intelligence and reach their true potential.

We want more high-quality children’s performances to be made in Scotland, and so work with artists through a year-round programme of creative development. This programme nurtures, supports and encourages artistic excellence by offering a range of opportunities to Scottish based artists, freelancers and producers, including events, training, residencies, mentoring and special projects.

We celebrate exceptional children’s theatre and dance from around the world by producing the Edinburgh International Children’s Festival which showcases high quality, distinctive Scottish and international performances.

About the Role

This National Schools Project Manager is essential for the organisation and delivery of the partnership project, Theatre in School Scotland, supported by Imaginate and National Theatre of Scotland, Imaginate’s Explore programme and school bookings for the annual Edinburgh International Children’s Festival.

For the role of National School’s Project Manager, we are looking for someone who is excellent at organisation, building relationships, has great attention to detail and enjoys working with schools, children and across a team. The role will be based in the Imaginate office, spending regular time each month at the National Theatre of Scotland’s office in Glasgow.

The Theatre in School’s Scotland project although self-sufficient financially, integrates across other areas of Imaginate’s work including the Explore Programme, the Edinburgh International Children’s Festival and creative development for work in schools. You will need to enjoy being part of a multi-focused team and have the initiative to work in collaboration with a range of partners and on your own when necessary.
