Arts Connect

Temporary post until 31st March 2022

 

Want to use your ideas, connections and project skills to support change for young people? Want to help us bring greater support for young people to access careers guidance, progression opportunities and other activities that support routes into employment in the cultural and creative sector? Can you bring your relationships skills, knowledge and planning skills to influence the cultural and education sectors to extend opportunities across the West Midlands?

 

If so then Arts Connect would love to hear from you. We are looking for someone with skills and a track record in working with young people to develop their creative talents and interests (such as career and progression guidance, talent and skills development and work based learning) and are keen to work at a system as well as practical level. This is a new post so you’ll be excited by the chance to establish and define the role, working as a key part of our friendly team.

 

We work across the West Midlands, connecting and supporting communities and enabling children and young people (from 0-25) to enjoy a rich and meaningful arts and cultural life.

The University of Wolverhampton celebrates diversity and recognises that difference brings value to our organisation.

 

As part of our commitment to ensure the diversity of staff body reflects the diversity of the student and local communities we serve, we particularly welcome applications from candidates of Black, Asian, or Ethnic Minority heritage, and candidates who are Disabled (including people who whilst not self-defining as disabled do encounter challenges due to a society that disables them by lack of inclusivity).

 

We are proud to have been awarded Disability Confident employer status, included in the Stonewall list of employers and are working towards improving our practices against Athena Swan and the Race Equality Charter. We believe in creating an even playing field for all our colleagues, where we can all belong.
