Artist Development Officer with Improvised Music Company
IMC is committed to developing career opportunities for Irish jazz and creative improvising musicians both in Ireland and abroad. We are looking for a part-time Artist Development Officer to engage with the various arts communities to deliver and expand on our development programmes. This role is most suited to persons with excellent communication skills and experience in different areas of the arts, with a passion for building and maintaining artist-focused initiatives.
This is a part-time position, 2 days per week and may require additional days/weekends based on IMC's events output. IMC currently works in a hybrid capacity, with a number of days per week working from home, frequent on-site live events (largely in Dublin), and other meetings in our Dublin office space. Candidates will need to be resident in Ireland, as IMC remains based in Dublin.
There is also the possibility of a position combining this Artist Development Officer role with Communications Officer or Production Coordinator roles for candidates with the relevant skills and experience - please see the relevant Role Descriptions.
One CV and cover letter may be submitted for multiple roles and should specify which role or roles are the subject of the application.
