Archived: Project Director

This is a new role, responsible for establishing and delivering an exciting three-year cultural placemaking project.

Part-time, 36 months fixed term, pro rata £40k pa (actual £24,000 pa)

We submitted a successful bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund/Arts Council England Great Place Scheme Place Scheme, and have secured funding for a three-year project – Pioneering Places: East Kent.  Through this project, we and our key project partners (Turner Contemporary, Marlowe Theatre and the Kent Cultural Transformation Board) will embed arts, culture and heritage in local plans and decision-making across Folkestone, Canterbury, Ramsgate and Dover.

We are now recruiting a Project Director to establish and successfully deliver the central Pioneering Places: East Kent project, which will bring together the learning and influence of all four local strands, and ensure that joined up advocacy, research and evaluation spreads far and wide during and beyond our three-year project lifecycle.

This new role will suit someone who is experienced in managing and advocating for multi-partner, multi-strand projects, ideally within the arts and/or heritage sectors.  Knowledge of East Kent isn’t essential to start with, but the ability to get to know and bring on board multiple stakeholder groups alongside flawless project management skills and an inspirational and influential communication style are a must.

We welcome applications from all sections of the community.
