Jo Blackett

Jo became the Sales Manager at Northern Stage in December 2016 and before that worked as Northern Stage’s Communications Officer. Jo has a degree in marketing management from Manchester Met University and  began a career in arts admin after she graduated working at Tyne and Wear Museums and archives. Then after travelling the world and returning the UK 18 months later, she admits she unintentionally ended up with a career in finance for companies including Accenture after temp jobs became permanent positions. In 2011 Jo returned to university to study an MA in Cultural Management at Northumbria University and moved back into the cultural sector working at the Tyne Theatre and Newcastle Arts Centre before joining Northern Stage
