PAC Australia is on the hunt for our new Programs Manager.

    • A highly visible position within a national peak organisation.
    • Connection to a broad range of national (and increasingly international) presenting and producing contacts.
    • Remote working conditions considered.


Performing Arts Connections Australia (PAC Australia) is a leading national membership organisation for the performing arts industry. Our role is one of national sector transformation through advocacy, connecting the industry and capacity building.

Our 230+ members are dispersed around the country in regional (45%) and metropolitan centres (55%). 135 of these run performing arts centres, about 65 are performing arts producing companies and about 30 are service organisations and consultants.

PAC Australia delivers a range of programs either on a scheduled basis, or in response to member priorities. Most significantly, we program and deliver the Australian Performing Arts Exchange (APAX), the premier national performing arts networking event. APAX is at the core of PAC Australia’s strategic and operational activity.

The Programs Manager is central to the delivery of APAX and other PAC Australia activities. Working in a small team and closely with the Executive Director, this position delivers a range of high-impact programs to further the objectives of the association, connect and develop our membership and contribute to the development of the broader sector. You can read more about our programs and activities here.

Working in a small team, the position requires high levels of adaptability and a diverse range of skills.

PAC Australia’s head office is located in Perth, Western Australia. While the preference is that the Programs Manager be based at the head office, remote working conditions may be considered.

This role also requires an individual with a passion for the development of the live performance sector who can clearly articulate the priorities of PAC Australia and our members – and then deliver them.

The full role description can be viewed here
