Ruth Richardson

Partnership Manager, Midlands

Organisation: Creative & Cultural Skills

I’m Ruth and I am the Creative & Cultural Skills Partnership Manager for the Midlands. I was fortunate enough to have an existing link with Creative & Cultural Skills as I have been delivering an interim role as Midlands Skills Academy Manager for a few months and I have also previously employed apprentices and paid interns linked to the CEP programme. I am delighted to join the team and hope I can bring my experience of working in arts, heritage, library, local authority and education settings to help to build a strong network, membership and programme in the Midlands. My role is ultimately about developing creative & cultural partnerships to increase investment, engagement, apprenticeships and work-related opportunities. The role is designed to build new relationships with education providers, creative and cultural employers, Local Enterprise Partnerships and key industry stakeholders, whilst sustaining existing partnerships, with a view to increasing income, sector engagement and growing apprenticeships and work-related training opportunities across the industry.
