An exciting opportunity is available for an Arts Engagement Officer to join the education department at Chatsworth. We are looking for an enthusiastic, creative person with a passion for the arts to devise and oversee our new program of engagement with children and young people, and visitors of all ages.
Chatsworth currently offers a range of educational activities which showcase the wealth of historic, environmental and artistic learning opportunities on the estate. This new post will focus on the development and delivery of arts activities linked to our exhibition and events programs. In the autumn this will include working directly with artists on our education sessions presented as part of the Chatsworth Festival ‘Art out Loud’ and also the promotion of the Sotheby’s outdoor sculpture exhibition ‘Beyond Limits’.
You will have a background in teaching or experience of working in a museum, gallery, or heritage setting. You will also have excellent creative skills and the ability to inspire creativity and curiosity about the arts in others. An interest in and experience of working with young people is essential, as are excellent communication skills and the ability to engage positively with a range of people.
This is initially offered as a one year fixed term post that will be working a 37.5 hour week with a salary of £24,000 pa. We are currently seeking funding to secure this post into the future and part of the role will include gathering evidence to support these funding applications.
