Other required skills include public relations and marketing, relationship management, experience in managing grant applications, and a focus on innovation.

The festival is seeking hands-on applicants with a warm and open communication and leadership style.

Experience in the not for profit sector or the LGBTI community will be well regarded.

The role is an exciting opportunity to be involved in leading one of the world’s biggest queer film festivals.

Interested applicants can find out more about the role and apply online. Applications close next Friday September 8.
