We’re looking for a Freelance Broadcast & Digital Production Manager to work with us on Manchester International Festival (MIF) in 2021. We are particularly looking for people with experience in digital productions, streaming video, technically delivering live content and broadcast.

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.

At MIF we work hard to deliver an internationally important creative and cultural programme, which takes dedication but is incredibly rewarding, so we need committed and passionate people to join our team.
