Job Opportunity – Project Manager

Posted: 23 October 2020

We are looking for a Project Manager to work with our Director on the research, development and delivery of a new strand of artist development.

Salary: £21,500 pro rata

Hours: Part time role, 2 days a week (equivalent to 16 hours)

Start date: January 2021, contract until April 2022 (potential for extension – funding dependent)

Deadline: Monday 30 November, 5pm

If part time work doesn’t suit you, you could also apply to combine this with our Community Coordinator role, which is three days a week, and currently being advertised.

We are looking for someone who is enthusiastic, reliable, organised and self-motivated, who can work well both independently and as part of our small team.

The NewBridge Project is piloting a new programme of artist development for people who are currently underrepresented in the arts sector to pursue their creative ambitions or start on a pathway to a career in the arts. We are planning to design a programme that focusses on supporting those with no university degree and who may face social and economic barriers to developing an artistic practice.

We are looking for a Project Manager to work with our Director on the research, development and delivery of this new strand of artist development. The role will include leading on engagement and relationship building, planning and managing a programme of workshops and projects, working with an Advisory group, as well as ongoing evaluation to support long-term development of the programme beyond the pilot year.
