Chief Executive, Shakespeare's Globe 

Shakespeare's Globe is a world-renowned theatre, education centre, and cultural landmark on the bank of the River Thames in London. Shakespeare's Globe is an independent educational and artistic charity, year to year operating without any regular subsidy or Arts Council England funding. The funds generated by its activities are invested in the ongoing work of the Shakespeare Globe Trust.

The Globe is a unique organisation. Its wooden 'O' so meticulously and beautifully designed, transports us and connects us to 400 years of treasured history - providing illumination and inspiration for what the next centuries can hold, not only in its cultural offer, but in its spirit.

We are seeking an exceptional individual to join as our new Chief Executive and seize the opportunity to lead this fantastic organisation with creativity and confidence. This is undoubtedly a turbulent time for the arts sector, and while we have continued to deliver creatively for our diverse audiences, we need a strong leader who can build upon the platform of resilience that is being established by the Globe's leadership team and drive our ambitious plans forward with dynamism and energy.

Our new CEO will be passionate about our mission and values, fostering a culture of respect and inclusion; a leader who is approachable, visible, and committed to diversifying, empowering, and developing those who work and volunteer at the Globe. We need an inspirational leader who will be innovative and collaborative. We want a CEO who can advance our vision for the years ahead, encourage audience development and seek to break down barriers that exist for public access to, and appreciation of Shakespeare.

The CEO needs to be passionate about driving artistic, cultural, academic, and educational excellence. We are seeking a leader experienced in leading change and growth who has operated at a senior level within a creative or customer-focused organisation of significant complexity and scale.

Our sector will continue to be faced with challenges and in order to achieve our ambition to ensure the Globe is a cultural powerhouse for generations to come, we need someone who is confident in being an ambassador for the charity, with a track record in fundraising and building partnerships.
