MAYK: General Manager

We’re looking for a General Manager to join our team. This is a new role, and will be instrumental in MAYK’s growth over the coming years, managing the day-to-day operations and finance, and ensuring we have the resources and capacity we need to deliver on our vision and mission.

 This is a role for someone who gets a kick out of setting up and running the administrative and financial systems that help arts organisations function. You’ll be ridiculously well organised, be an absolute whizz with a spreadsheet and have strong financial skills. You’ll have a background in administration and finance. You’ll have a hawk-eye for detail, be imaginative and resourceful and be a strong lateral thinker. We’re looking for someone who understands that great art needs consistent, detailed and innovative management.

Salary: £28,000 pro rata

Contract: Permanent, part-time (21 hours per week)

Deadline: Tuesday 10 September, 5pm

  • Curates and commissions bespoke theatrical events for Bristol

  • Invites the most exciting makers we can find to present and play in the city

  • Produces, develops and tours new work nationally and internationally

Our major project is Mayfest, Bristol's international festival of contemporary theatre, and we also work with a number of artists to develop, present and tour their work. Currently we work with Caroline Williams, Jo Bannon, Still House, Sleepdogs and Sam Halmarack.

MAYK is an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation and a Bristol City Council Cultural Investment Partner. MAYK is an Associate Company of Bristol Old Vic.


A society where creativity and culture inspire people to make change; where the collective action of being in the same space at the same time helps us understand each other, enables us to be heard and makes the world a better place to live.


To collaborate with visionary artists making thrilling new live work that meets its audiences in vibrant and unusual ways. To create dynamic meeting points for participation in world class live performance through Mayfest, our biennial international festival, and in collaboration with other organisations throughout the year.


Collaboration | Connection | Excellence | Representation | Joy | Kindness

““Collaborating with MAYK has been nothing short of essential to Sleepdogs’ growing profile, confidence and reach. Without Kate and Matthew on our team, we would not be making as much theatre as we do, and we would not have the confidence to work as ambitiously as we do.” — Sleepdogs

MAYK projects have taken place in Bristol, Birmingham, London, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester, Sao Paulo, Tbilisi, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Prague, Melbourne, Gent and many other places around the world.
