Project Co-ordinator – Creative Leadership Programme


We’ve secured funding from Arts Council England to pilot a one-year leadership programme which explores and builds a model of distributed leadership, challenging dominant models of hierarchical leadership in ways that support the development of the cultural ecology. Instead of a singular programme this looks to create a framework for leadership, working within the cultural sector to support and enable leadership, wherever it exists.  



We are looking for someone to join our small team to co-ordinate all aspects of the pilot programme. You will work closely with the programme designer and executive team to agree the programme structure and the processes and procedures needed for delivery.

We are particularly keen to work not just with senior leaders but creatives and the creative workforce who demonstrate progressive leadership, at all levels and in all settings. As such a good understanding of and connections to the cultural landscape in Plymouth will be advantageous.

Recruiting participants to take up the opportunities will be critical to the success of the programme so you will need to have the ability to help create a fair, equitable and accessible application process.

We will work with an external evaluator to monitor the programme and you will be required to collect and present data findings.   

Our funding is initially only for a year so you will need to be able to be highly organised and able to move at pace to support the delivery and evaluation of the programme within a short timeframe.

It is essential that you are passionate about creating opportunities for all and developing the arts and culture sector in the city. We are looking for someone who really understands the value of this project and who can work as an integral part of our team to realise its full potential.  

The Project Co-ordinator will be responsible for the day-to-day running and delivery of the creative leadership programme. This will include working closely with colleagues to establish project information, systems and processes, as well as recruiting participants to take up the opportunities available.
