This is your chance to lead one of the North West’s favourite arts organisations into a new era, help young people and develop your own leadership, personal and business skills. Action Transport Theatre (ATT) is a professional theatre company which makes world-class theatre for children and young audiences.

They are part of Arts Council England’s National Portfolio. Based in Ellesmere Port in Cheshire, the company has a local, regional, national and growing international reputation as leaders in the field, collaborating with children and young people to make pioneering work which tours to schools and venues.
