CLAY (Centre For Live Art Yorkshire) is a centre for artworks that test boundaries and artists whose practice is hard to define. They are looking for a Company Coordinator to work closely with the Director to support the day-to-day running of the business.
The Company Coordinator will oversee office and administrative systems to ensure that CLAY runs smoothly and efficiently, supporting the Director in the day-to-day operations in the office, venue and when running events. The role will include engaging workers for projects and events, overseeing financials, reporting and data capture. This new role covers office and administrative systems, financial management and income generation and strategy, and is flexible to suit the right candidate with room for growth.
CLAY are looking for someone to take the responsibilities laid out and develop the role, becoming a core member of the team and helping to shape the future of the company in this exciting stage in its development. The benefits of working for CLAY include working with some of the most exciting artists from the UK and beyond, flexible working hours and access to a wide variety of events (some CLAY, some not) and working with friendly and small creative team.
Established in August 2019 and building / evolving from the legacy of Live Art Bistro (2012 – 2019), CLAY has a bold ambition to be an art centre for live and interdisciplinary artwork; a building that provides space for artists to take risks and experiment.
Based on Regent Street in Leeds, CLAY has a dedicated performance area, studio spaces, co-working space and cabaret stage and bar. Run by a small and dedicated team, CLAY provides much-needed space to support artistic risk, experimentation and interdisciplinary artwork. Alongside this, the space is available to hire, providing a strong income stream for their work.
CLAY work with artists with both emerging and established practices as a touring venue and a space to make art and performance. They are committed to working with underrepresented artists and have affiliations with LGBTQ+ communities across the country. CLAY often programme performance within the context of a party or celebration; this could be in their Regent Street base or sometimes off site at external venues or greenfield festivals.
