Managing Director, Theatre Projects Manitoba

Are you an energetic leader and a fierce advocate for the value of live theatre? Are you a resourceful problem-solver who sees obstacles as opportunities for growth? Do you have a strong commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, and a passion for the everyday citizen? Are you interested in fearlessly tackling the risky business of theatre-making with a team that values innovation, collaboration, kindness, and a great sense of humour?

Terrific—we’re looking for someone with organizational vision to help lead Theatre Projects into its next cycle of growth and dynamism.

We want to hear from you!

We are seeking a Managing Director who is a strong co-leader and can bring stable yet visionary leadership to the administrative portfolio of the company. This is not an artistic position but it is a CREATIVE position. Our Managing Director will be someone who understands that creative risk is where the magic happens and will ensure that these leaps of faith are supported by responsible management.

TPM functions in a co-leadership model where each Director has their own area of focus and expertise, but both are working closely on most aspects of the company’s operations. That said, because we are a small company, both the Artistic and Managing Directors are required to do a lot of hands-on work to execute their vision.

We strongly encourage submissions from all qualified individuals from all communities regardless of gender, age, race, sexual orientation or abilities. We believe in diversity, equity and inclusion and TPM is committed to reflecting this community in which we live, work and play.

This is a full-time permanent position.

  • Hours of work/Schedule: 35 hours per week; flexible and variable – some evening and weekend work is required.
  • Generous vacation allowance (starting at 4-weeks paid vacation per year)
  • Salary range: $45,000 to $55,000 plus health benefits (moving expenses negotiable)
  • Start Date: August 2023 or a mutually agreed upon date.

The Managing Director regularly reports to the Board of Directors and works in close collaboration with the Artistic Director to ensure the successful alignment of artistic, production, and organizational needs and priorities.
