Kickstart – Projects Administrator

Eastside is pleased to be supporting the creation of a new role as part of the government’s Kickstart scheme.  The Projects Administator role has been designed to offer support across the projects we run in administration, marketing and stakeholder relations. The role will run for 6 months from the 5th May. You need to be on Universal Credit to apply and this position is only open to referrals from Job Centre+.  If you are interested please speak to your job coach. Your application will not be considered if you do not have a referral.

We are at an exciting stage of our development as we prepare to launch an online hub of free on-demand and live digital content for teachers to use in their classrooms. This role will be central in helping drive forward engagement in these online resources for schools.

The ideal candidate will be a confident communicator, with a keen attention to detail, a highly organised and methodical approach and the self-motivation and resilience necessary to be leading on contact development with schools, local government and other education focussed institutions. This role would suit somebody with an interest in working in a cultural engagement or education sector role who is looking to develop their skills within a leading provider of arts educational projects.
