The award winning Ropetackle Arts Centre is looking to appoint a Director to take on the principal role of managing the Centre and leading its future development.

Ropetackle Arts Centre has become established as one of the most successful arts centres in the region.

Candidates should have experience of venue management and funding, and of working collaboratively with artists, volunteers, and members of the community.
