Aberdeen Performing Arts (APA) is a creative hub and focal point for the performing arts, community engagement and talent development in the North-east.
Our three iconic city centre venues are all on a national and international touring circuit for the performing arts and a vital part of Aberdeen and Scotland’s cultural infrastructure. We present, produce and commission diverse and distinctive arts and cultural programmes of regional and national reach and impact. We support talent and help develop professional practice. We run a wide range of creative activities, projects and workshops for all ages and stages in our own venues as well as in schools and community settings. We provide a box office service for 30+ venues in the North-east. We run 6 bars, two cafes and a restaurant in-house across our venues.
We have an opening for a go-ahead Director of Marketing and Communications who will bring vision, creativity and expertise to this leadership role at Aberdeen Performing Arts.

With our new business plan Imagining New Futures in place and as we prepare to relaunch Aberdeen Music Hall at the end of 2018 following an £8m makeover, it’s an exciting time for Aberdeen Performing Arts. We are looking for an exceptional individual who will provide inspirational leadership, build a high performance team and thrive in a fast-paced environment.
