Company & Community Manager
Target Margin Theater
232 52nd St
New York, NY 11220
Target Margin Theater seeks a Company & Community Manager to join their team. They are a small company and they need a partner in leadership. Their new Company & Community Manager will collaborate with the Artistic Director and Associate Artistic Director to manage the company’s activities and advance the next phase of their growth. The most important qualities they seek are a deep affinity for our company’s artistic mission, and a commitment to the values we aspire to embody in every dimension. Target Margin is an arts organization, but their work expresses the values of justice globally: anti-racism, equity and humane treatment for people, access for all to the work we make and the world we aspire to create. They embrace unorthodox ways of working and seek new ways to think about how we collaborate. BIPOC candidates, LGBTQ+ candidates, and candidates abled in all ways are strongly urged to apply. They also encourage those who may not have conventional resumes to apply; there is no degree requirement for us.
Target Margin serves diverse and overlapping communities, including artists and theater professionals, audiences, students at many levels, and our neighbors, local Sunset Park residents. Sunset Park itself is a layered neighborhood supporting many groups, languages, traditions, and cultures. Their new Company & Community Manager will primarily be responsible for helping to manage activities related to company management, local Sunset Park initiatives, artist support, and space rentals. The Company & Community Manager will also contribute to Target Margin’s development efforts and artistic programs, as well as help manage the small but dynamic staff. Everyone on staff is expected to participate in the artistic conversation at Target Margin.
Notable Responsibilities Include:
Company Management. Manage all aspects of hiring, including negotiating and monitoring contracts; supervision, mentoring, and periodic performance review; and collaborate with our Finance Manager to run payroll; manage our increased personnel during production periods, union (AEA and USA) payroll and contract management.
Local Sunset Park Initiatives. Collaborate with leadership to grow current partnerships with Sunset Park organizations and elected officials, and foster new connections within the neighborhood; facilitate and produce programs for Southwest Brooklyn residents, including TMT’s Young Artists program, Community Storytelling Project, special events, and theatrical live performances; creating systems for evaluation of programs and potential impact for participants.
