FirstWorks is a fast-paced, growing non-profit arts organization dedicated to enhancing our community through world-class performing arts and education programs. FirstWorks curates two annual performing arts series and produces ground-breaking projects with renowned artists such as Yo-Yo Ma and Paul Taylor Dance Company. We are the proud Founding Partner of PVDFest, the City of Providence’s signature cultural celebration, developed to showcase the diversity and vibrancy of the Creative Capital. We also provide art education to 4,000 K-12 students at 30+ RI schools each year, helping fill the gap left from severe public spending cuts.
Now celebrating its 15th season, FirstWorks seeks a Business Operations Manager to support the implementation of its three-year strategic plan. While managing operations is core to the role, equally important is coordinating staff efforts to support the creative spark that has built FirstWorks as a premiere multi-disciplinary performing arts curator in Rhode Island.
We are looking for a mission-driven, strategic, detail-oriented individual with superior people, project management and analytical skills to serve as FirstWorks Business Operations Manager (BOM). The BOM will play both an internal and external role for the organization, aligning staff efforts and results as well as maintaining and developing external relationships. Reporting to the Executive Artistic Director and serving as a member of the management team, the BOM will oversee administrative and marketing staff.
Both full-time and part-time applicants will be considered for this position, which includes benefits.
Applications will be accepted until position is filled.
Primary responsibilities are to manage general business functions - overall administration, operational planning, technology management, and marketing.
Salary is commensurate with professional experience. Benefits include health & dental care (full-time only) and vacation; an excellent working environment; and the ability to have an impact on creating access and engagement with the arts, and bettering the lives of children across Rhode Island.
