Vacancy: Programme Officer Dance Ireland

Dance Ireland is seeking a friendly and experienced individual for the role of Programme Officer.

Dance Ireland is Ireland’s national dance development organisation and, true to our origins, we are proud to continue to be the representative body for professional dance. Our bold ambition is for dance to be valued and vibrantly, actively, and confidently part of people’s lives.

We use all the opportunities afforded by DanceHouse, our own expertise and connections alongside those of our national and international partners to create a programme of work that engages the public and supports the professional, crossing the boundaries of age, experience, and genre.

As such we enable the development of dance as an art-form, as an activity to be accessed and enjoyed, as well as working to progress professional practice. To that end, we offer dedicated support to our Members who are professionals working in dance; pre-professionals (students), organisations, and other arts professionals connected with dance, movement, or choreographic practice.

The post of Programme Officer is key to us communicating and delivering our vision and mission, ensuring a high-quality delivery of programme activity. As well as strong communication, administrative and organisational skills, this role requires empathy and understanding of the needs of professional and pre-professional artists and organisations who look to Dance Ireland for representation and support. The Programme Officer is a key point of contact between programming and operations.
