Are you an experienced, driven, highly organised Project Manager looking for a new challenge within an award winning creative arts charity?
Create uses the power of the creative arts to transform the lives of society’s most disadvantaged and vulnerable people by enabling them to develop creativity, learning, social skills and self-esteem. It believes that everyone – regardless of circumstances, behaviour, age, gender, race or disability – deserves the chance to fulfil their potential. Its particular focus is on engaging the most marginalised participants in inspiring, sustainable arts programmes – delivered in familiar settings where they feel comfortable and safe – in areas where provision is poor and engagement in the arts is therefore low. Most projects are collaborations with community partners, which have specialist knowledge of local priorities and the participants that they exist to serve. Create’s work focuses on seven priority groups: young patients; disabled children and adults; young and adult carers; schoolchildren (and their teachers) in areas of deprivation; vulnerable older people; young and adult offenders (and their families); and marginalised children and adults. www.createarts.org.uk.
Create is seeking a dynamic, energetic, people-centred individual with experience of managing creative arts projects in education and community settings. The full time position would suit someone with a passion for the arts - and the power of the arts as a transformational tool in challenging community settings - who has project management experience, ideally gained in the arts or charity sector. You will have a passion for arts education and knowledge of the arts, together with outstanding interpersonal, negotiation and organisational skills and the ability to communicate effectively, persuasively and empathetically. You will have worked with a variety of different groups of vulnerable people (eg: prison inmates, homeless people, young carers, vulnerable women, older people. As Create continues to develop its work over the coming years, the job may involve increasing levels of travel around the UK. You will be responsible for managing a portfolio of Create’s projects and will oversee our freelance professional artists at workshops and events. Drive, passion, a “can do” attitude, outstanding organisational skills, excellent written and verbal communication skills, and rigorous evaluation expertise are essential. All Create personnel are required to have a DBS check, which Create will carry out upon appointment, and to work within our dress code.
