Top job! Chief Executive

  • Full time
  • TBC
  • Glasgow
  • Closing 4th February 2019

Since 1987, Toonspeak has provided free, high quality drama and theatre activities for young people living in Glasgow. As part of our 3-year strategy we seek an inspirational Chief Executive to deliver on our aims and objectives and build on our recent success.

We work with professional artists who challenge and inspire young people to create their own performances and manage their own projects – all of our work is young people led and we have 6 places for young people on our voluntary Board of Directors.

We aim to expand young people’s imaginations to help them reach their full potential and to inspire positive change within communities of disadvantage across the city. We ensure that anyone, regardless of experience, ability or personal circumstances can take part.

Toonspeak was awarded Regular Funding Organisation (RFO) status by Creative Scotland for the first time this year and is currently in strong financial health. Having recently moved to new premises in Barmulloch, the opportunity for growth and expansion has substantially increased.

The new role of Chief Executive has been created to lead the organisation at a pivotal time in its history and to help the company realise its potential and ambitions. We are currently undergoing an organisational review and the Chief Executive will play a major part working with the Board, shaping the new structure as it evolves.

Toonspeak is primarily a learning organisation that uses involvement in arts activities as a catalyst for growth and connection. We want an exceptional leader who is passionate about the benefits that involvement in creative activities can bring and who will help to create the environment in which our participants and staff can thrive and flourish.
