Ludic Rooms is looking for a proactive and self-directed General Manager to join our small but busy team. Ludic Rooms are a non-profit that produce artworks, events, education and socially engaged projects with a collaborative approach and a passion for creative technology.

Salary: £23,000 pro-rata (0.4 FTE salary is £9079 per year)
Hours: 0.4 FTE (15hrs per/wk based on a 38 hour week)

We need a General Manager to take the reins of our day-to-day operations, have oversight over our financial management and help grow the good work we do here at Ludic Rooms. As a starting point, we would expect the successful applicant to perform the following:

  • Management of all financial and administrative processes
  • Management of the company’s day-to-day operations and systems
  • Contribute to the company’s sustainability and financial planning
  • Contribute to developing and maintaining the profile of the organisation

We are looking for someone with experience of working in a management, administration or development role. This could be in any sector, as long as there is a willingness to transfer knowledge to the specifics of the cultural sector.

This is a strange and wonderful time to be joining us at Ludic Rooms, with Coventry becoming City of Culture from May 2021-22. However the uncertainty of COVID-19 has obviously had an impact on our operations – the post will be mostly remote until it is risk assessed as safe for staff to meet and work together. Like the arts sector as a whole, our future planning is unpredictable, which is why the post is initially for 6 months and should be applied for on this basis. We would obviously like to continue the post long term, but cannot make any guarantees at this moment.

Ludic Rooms is a positive action employer and we are committed to developing a diverse organisation that is reflective of the communities that we work with. We welcome applications to the position of General Manager from all suitable candidates; we particularly welcome applications from Black and minority ethnic candidates as they are under-represented in Ludic Rooms.
