Manchester International Festival is grounded in our city and engages with the world. We aim to reflect the great diversity of Manchester, and our planet, in all aspects of our work – artists, audiences, staff, participants, board members, and partner companies. We invite and welcome input on how we can do this effectively from the many individuals and communities with whom we aim to work in ever more exciting ways. John McGrath, Artistic Director and CEO, Manchester International Festival + The Factory

Engagement Coordinators (freelance)

We’re looking for a number of Freelance Engagement Coordinators to work with us on next year’s Festival. This opportunity is all about reaching out to the widest range of people across Greater Manchester and supporting them to get involved in our exciting productions at MIF21. It’s an extremely varied role which could see you working with hundreds of participants to create something for a one-off event, to managing a community chorus of 30. You might be coordinating activity within schools, or finding fifty cyclists for a public performance.
