Northern Ballet breaks down barriers to world-class ballet, telling unexpected stories that move audiences across the world and online. We aim to reach as many different people and places as possible with our passionate storytelling, mastery of classical dance technique and live music.

Following the recent appointments of Federico Bonelli as Artistic Director, and Guy Perricone as Chair of Trustees we are looking to appoint a new Executive Director to succeed Mark Skipper who leaves the Company in the Autumn following a remarkable tenure. The role is based in Leeds and is a joint leadership position with the Artistic Director.

The successful candidate will be an independent strategic thinker able to develop relationships and drive consensus with financial and commercial acumen, and a track record of growing sustainable revenue

This is an exciting time to join Northern Ballet as we move into a new period of artistic and strategic planning. We appreciate leaders come in many guises. We welcome and embrace applications from everyone with the skills and qualities to lead us towards a prosperous future.
