A Warm Welcome to Pitlochry Festival Theatre

Thank you for considering the role of Financial Controller at Pitlochry Festival Theatre. 


Pitlochry Festival Theatre is Scotland’s largest building-based producing theatre company. It is a haven for artists, set in breath-taking Highland Perthshire surroundings. The range and scale of work we create here – in the only fully end-to-end production facility of its kind in Scotland, and delivered through an entrepreneurial business model – ensures that we play a unique role in the nation’s theatre sector.


It’s an exciting time to be joining the Theatre in this newly created role. As well as continuing to produce exceptional work and investing further in Scotland’s creative talent, we are also midway through a major capital development programme which will see us reduce our carbon footprint, improve accessibility, and ensure the long-term financial sustainability of the Theatre.


We are more than a venue;  we’re a community, a creative hub, and a home for transformative experiences. This is an incredibly exciting time for the Theatre as we continue to develop our programmes and physical home, and control of our finances has never been more crucial. As part of a small core finance team, you will be responsible for bringing clarity to a complex business model and support the team in our mission to create life-changing experiences through the arts.


The newly created Financial Controller role is crucial to that long-term success and we thank you for your interest in the position. If you would like to learn more about us as an organisation and the opportunity itself, please do not hesitate to speak with our retained advisor, Ivan McGeorge of McGeorge Appointments Ltd. Ivan would be delighted to engage with you on a formal/informal basis – in complete confidence and without obligation.


We look forward to meeting you in Pitlochry soon.
