The Royal and McPherson Theatres Society (RMTS) seeks an Executive Director to succeed current Executive Director Lloyd Fitzsimonds who retires in December of 2019.
The mission of RMTS is to enrich the quality of life in the region, through a sustainable and relevant performing arts centre and to be the integral hub for performing arts of the region, recognized for diverse and valued performances, professional standards, and historic spaces. In the past the RMTS has focused essentially on the preservation of its two historic assets and is primarily a rental-only facility. The RMTS, however, provides a full complement of support services to its presenter-clients.
We seek an individual with 7 to 10 years of experience in cultural management (with at least 4 years of senior management) in a performing arts facility or major performing arts organization; a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree; a background in government relations, union negotiations, advocacy, corporate sponsorship, and the building of community partnerships; knowledge of a sophisticated ticketing system (Tessitura), grantsmanship, and event coordination.
Preference given to qualified Canadian applicants.
Deadline for applications: Friday, August 2, 2019. Interested candidates are invited to submit a resume with a list of references, and salary expectations to:
