Jacksons Lane is seeking a highly efficient and focused individual to join our team as our new hires manager. As the flagship arts and cultural venue in Haringey, Jacksons Lane hosts a year round programme encompassing the best in contemporary circus performance, arts participation activities, cultural education and outreach work for both its community and the sector as a whole.

This opportunity has arisen due to internal promotion and comes at an exciting time in our history as we have just reopened our building following a long anticipated capital refurbishment project, which has transformed our space and offers state of the art, accessible facilities for all. The hires manager will be key in developing the sales and marketing strategy for our space hires, expanding our customer base while retaining existing relationships and delivering on sales targets for both commercial and community hires.

We are looking for someone who is commercially savvy, highly organised with excellent numeracy skills and the drive to deliver high standards of customer experience. Jacksons Lane is a vibrant and proactive organisation and so an ability to support the continued development of all aspects of the company’s work is essential.

You may not have worked in the arts sector before, but may have worked in a sales role in the hospitality or events industries and will have a track record of securing business and leading on the planning and coordination on a range of different events. An interest in our work as a charitable arts centre is important and you will be keen to learn about the contribution your role makes to the company.

Jacksons Lane is an equal opportunities employer, and we are committed to building a diverse workforce that reflects the dynamism and broad range of work we do as an organisation. We welcome applications from all individuals and, as with all our work, strive to make our application process as accessible as we can.
