MIF invites great artists from across the globe to create extraordinary new work for the Festival, which is staged every two years at venues and found spaces across Manchester. Our future home is The Factory, a world-class cultural space being built in the heart of the city, where we’ll present a year-round programme and artists will be able to develop work of huge ambition and scale that they might not be able to anywhere else.

MIF’s Community Connector is one of the most critical roles within the organisation. Your job is to be out meeting, learning about and understanding the interests and motivations of the people of Manchester and the city-region and bringing this knowledge back to the team at MIF, to help us be responsive to the creative needs and interests of our local communities. You will be MIF’s key representative with a wide range of stakeholders from housing associations to local Councillors. We are looking for a brilliant communicator who loves working with and can relate to people of all ages and backgrounds, who has great ideas and a commitment to genuine long-term relationships with our communities.
