The role will run for 6 months from the 23rd August. 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.

Although initially on a 6 month contract as part of Kickstart, there is the potential for this to become a permanent new role in our organisation as we grow. This role will be for 32.5 hours per week at London Living Wage.

This role would suit somebody with an interest in working in culture or education and who is looking to develop their skills within a leading provider of arts educational projects.  You 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 communications with project participants and contact development with schools, local government and other education focussed institutions.  Full training will be given on all systems and programmes, you just need to have a desire and the capacity to learn.
