Employment Opportunities

Programmes Coordinator 

The impact of this placement will be to give a person from a lower socio-economic background a genuine hands-on role enabling them to gain new skills, a new network of contacts and valuable experience of working in the arts sector.

The placement holder will gain a wider understanding of the operation of the sector as well as knowledge across all elements of arts management, curatorial, local engagement and audience development. This will help them to develop their personal and professional confidence enabling them to embark on and build a career in the arts.

SUPPORT AND DEVELOPMENT

The BCB Project Coordinator will be line managed by Iain Cartwright, BCB Executive Director. He will have responsibility for developing the work plan for the placement starting with a full induction, regular line management meetings, structured feedback and review/monitoring procedures. This will include but not be limited to:

· Shadowing the Executive Director followed by different members of the team, to provide an introduction/induction into each part of the organisation;

· Familiarisation with the sector and partners locally through attendance at meetings, events, networking opportunities;

· Developing and agreeing a work programme in 3 x 3 month phases with review points.

To meet pastoral needs the placement will be allocated a Buddy: BCB Creative Producer Rhiannon Ewing-James, a relatively new member of staff, a recent graduate in 2014 and who was herself in receipt of a full maintenance grant throughout university.

We are aware that many recent graduates will not be in a position to gain unpaid work experience and therefore this is not a pre-requisite of applying.
