Scotland Programme Manager Vacancy – Parents & Carers in Performing Arts

About the Role:
Parents and Carers in Performing Arts (PiPA) seeks a Programme Manager to take a prominent role in supporting the Charity, contributing to its strategic direction and delivering our programme and supporting events in Scotland in partnership with Federation of Scottish Theatre and funded by Creative Scotland.

Building on our existing network in Scotland, this role will lead on strategic business and operational development for PiPA’s work in Scotland, developing new relationships and strengthening existing partnerships. The goal of this project is to establish PiPA as a support organisation for the Scottish performing arts sector and to increase the engagement in the PiPA Charter Programme across the region.

You will take a major role in shaping the future direction of the work needed to support the Scottish performing arts network and wider creative community on its way to becoming more family friendly.

Key areas of focus include implementing and progressing the development of a new PiPA pilot programme, recruiting and supporting organisations to participate, capturing their learning and key trends and shaping the future rollout of the programme. You will also be instrumental in generating new revenues and seeking funding opportunities that can help support PiPA’s work in Scotland to ensure the continuation and sustainability of PiPA Scotland beyond the initial 10 months.


This is an excellent opportunity to join a small, ambitious, and committed team within a supportive and flexible working environment to make a real difference for parents and carers working in the Scottish performing arts sector. Although this role is conducted remotely, the PiPA Scotland Manager must be Scotland-based. This Scotland project will intersect with PiPA’s current research projects investigating how protected characteristics intersect with caring responsibilities, and the challenges faced by parents and carers in Music and Dance. We are particularly keen on hearing from applicants with protected characteristics and/or a music, dance or opera background.
