Canberra Repertory

Board Member for Independent Community Theatre Company


Canberra Repertory Society (REP) is seeking expressions of interest for candidates with experience and acumen in marketing to join our Council of directors.

REP is a not-for-profit theatre company limited by guarantee and is registered with the ACNC as a Charity. REP provides high-quality theatre productions to the Canberra community, and has fostered local talent since 1932. The Board, also known as Council, is made up of volunteer directors, with the usual responsibility for governance, strategic planning and oversight of the organisation, each of whom takes particular oversight for an area of strategic importance to REP. We are currently seeking someone to take on specific responsibility for our marketing strategy.

The role currently requires about five hours per month to review papers and attend board meetings at our premises in Acton, and such additional hours as the candidate is able to devote to the marketing strategy. The role is supported through the Society’s paid Business Manager and Office Assistant. The director is not required to manage the company’s marketing per se, but will be Council’s liaison with the Business Manager and Office Assistant on marketing activity and have primary carriage of the marketing strategy and related matters within Council.

The position is unremunerated, but as producers of REP's shows, directors are offered two tickets to each opening night (currently six shows).

Our preferred candidate will have a high level of marketing acumen, preferably with a formal relevant qualification and/or significant relevant experience; strong interpersonal skills and the ability to work as part of a team; a flexible and adaptable approach; and a commitment to the ongoing artistic success, financial viability and public recognition of one of Australia’s oldest and most awarded theatre companies.

If this sounds like you, and you are interested in working with a diverse, professional and highly motivated Council, please submit your CV, with a brief expression of interest, using the button below.
