Tavaziva Company Manager (maternity cover) starting June 2017- Extended Deadline!

16 March 2017

Tavaziva is an acclaimed company touring work by its founder and artistic director, Zimbabwean-born, Bawren Tavaziva whose style uniquely synthesises African, ballet and contemporary dance.  Dynamic, bold, risk-taking and beautiful, the work is popular with venues and audiences.

Working in a small and busy team, the Company Manager is the first point of contact for all enquiries to the Company and is responsible for the day-to-day running of the Company and its operations in accordance within the aims and objectives of Tavaziva, the logistics of the touring productions and the planned programmes and activities.

This year Tavaziva will be creating and touring a new production as well as delivering a range of learning and participation programmes.

If you are a highly organised arts manager with a systematic yet understanding approach to running a small and adventurous dance company, we want to hear from you.

Although this is intended as a full time position, Tavaziva is open to hearing from candidates with proposals for part-time working arrangements or with specific expertise suited to delivering areas of the role in a freelance capacity.
