Recruitment: Project & Partnership Director
28 November 2017
Arts for Action is seeking an exceptional individual to support organisational growth, partnerships and project management. This is initially a part time/consultancy role, with potential to progress to a full-time senior role.
Arts for Action makes provocative, cross-cultural performance and uses the arts and communication to improve lives. We are a young organisation but have projects in development in Africa, South and South-East Asia as well as the UK. For this reason, we need to expand the leadership team.
The successful applicant will work alongside Artistic Director Melissa Eveleigh to expand impact and reach, secure partnerships and support project management. The ideal candidate will understand the UK and international funding landscape and have substantial experience of working in either international development or the performing arts sector, with knowledge of the other. We are looking for someone entrepreneurial, highly organised and ambitious; a person who will thrive in an atmosphere of growth and change, and be ready to nurture the company through expansion into charitable status and increased global impact. Most of all, candidates must have passion for the positive role the arts can play in society, and ideas for how that role can be strengthened.
This is a rare and excellent opportunity to develop your career and professional profile, and help transform people’s lives. If you want to be part of a vibrant change-making artistic community, connect to talented and extraordinary people from around the world and impact positively on poverty and injustice, we’d like to hear from you.
