This brand new role will be responsible for delivering our creative commissions and year-round sector leadership programs like Springboard, Deadly Fringe and XS, from start to finish.

The perfect candidate will have experience in and a passion for working with people from all walks of life and will share Melbourne Fringe’s strong commitment to cultural equity.

So if planning, project management and communication are your bread and butter, and a good excel spready gets you out bed in the morning, pour yourself a cuppa (and pop the aforementioned bread in the toaster) and apply now. The role commences 31 January 2022.
