Job Description

National Call for Applications: Full-Time Remote Work Opportunity

Position Overview:

National New Play Network is seeking an individual to lead the implementation, facilitation, evaluation, and strategic growth of a $350,000 portfolio of programs that support the new play field through the theaters, artists, and audiences that comprise it.

A Director-level position that reports to the Executive Director, the ideal candidate for this role is excited by work that requires both high-level visioning and in-the-weeds administrative acumen.
As a member service organization built on deep engagement with NNPN’s Member Theaters, other constituencies, and the field at large, the position requires intense communication and relationship-building.
Rooted in a value system that prioritizes equity, anti-racism, and collaboration, these relationships inform the work of implementing and innovating the organization’s current programmatic offerings, something this position is both empowered and encouraged to initiate.
While this is a position with authority and autonomy, the spirit of collaboration is strong among staff, buttressed by systems of cooperation, regular interaction, and collective decision-making.
At least two years of experience working with re-granting programs, member/national service organizations, and/or professional associations required.

Full-time, Permanent, Working Remotely | Salary Range: $50,000 – $55,000
Candidate Profile:
As engagement is fundamental to how NNPN does its work for the new play field, ideal candidates are both comfortable with and stimulated by a lot of human interaction, particularly through meetings, emails, events, and to a lesser extent, social media. This person can see both the forest and the trees, paying attention to the details while working toward a vision of what is created when those details come together, and how that vision supports NNPN’s mission and affirms its values. They are passionate about the role of the artist, storytelling, and specifically that of new plays in strengthening communities. They are also committed to anti-racist practices and ideals, and excited to engage and seek out and create new relationships with and opportunities for artist and institutional partners in the new play field.
