Case study:Achates Recruits: Young Vic

Based on The Cut in Waterloo, the Young Vic’s focus provides high quality, innovative and imaginative theatre for a wide and, in particular, a young and contemporary audience. Under its current leadership – Kwame Kwei-Armah and Despina Tsatsas – the Young Vic is leading the way in developing and showcasing exceptional diverse creative talent. In late 2020 Achates supported the recruitment of the new Development Director for the Young Vic, ultimately securing a high-calibre candidate from the Public Theater in New York. In parallel, Achates led on the development of a Fundraising Snapshot to identify how the Young Vic can strengthen its revenue fundraising in the period ahead and build on the success of its emergency appeals since COVID-19 and the renewed energy of its Development Board following the appointment of new Co-Chairs.
