Southbank Centre
Competitive salary

Southbank Centre is the UK’s largest arts centre and one of the UK’s top five visitor attractions, occupying a 17 acre site that sits in the midst of London’s most vibrant cultural quarter on the South Bank of the Thames. We exist to present great cultural experiences that bring people together and we achieve this by providing the space for artists to create and present their best work and by creating a place where as many people as possible can come together to experience bold, unusual and eye-opening work. We want to take people out of the everyday, every day.


We’re looking for a high calibre, inspiring and dynamic human resources professional to play a pivotal role at the heart of Europe’s largest cultural organisation. Your experience should combine both strategic and operational leadership ability and you will be skilled in driving and embedding organisational effectiveness and cultural change in line with the organisation strategy. You will need to demonstrate a track record of delivering strategic impact in a large and complex organisation, with the personal credibility to build effective relationships across a wide range of internal and external stakeholders, and a clear commitment to Southbank Centre’s mission and activity.
