Glasgow Connected Arts Network



Job Opportunity: Youth Arts Coordinator

Glasgow Connected Arts Network is looking to recruit a part-time Youth Arts Coordinator to lead on the delivery of its participatory youth arts programme.

This part-time post is supported through The Big Lottery’s Young Start Fund to develop and grow Glasgow CAN’s youth arts committee - The Bold Collective and their programme of activity. The successful candidate will have a minimum of 2 years experience of delivering participatory youth arts projects and possess the skills to connect and collaborate with young people aged 12-25 years old.

It is Glasgow CAN’s aim that young people who engage in our creative programme will learn critical new skills in collaborative working, gain skills in running events and marketing campaigns, grow in confidence, committee skills, improve their employability, build friendships and make new connections. As members of The Bold Collective or through accessing Glasgow CAN's grassroots participatory arts projects and events, young people will have access to free high quality arts provision and become more involved in the creative industries. Glasgow CAN will prioritise the targeting of young people that face barriers to participation and may lack confidence to ‘get involved’ by working in areas of multiple-deprivation throughout Glasgow.

Salary: £23,000 per annum pro-rata

This post will initially be 14 hours per week but may increase to 21 hours funding dependent. Glasgow CAN will comply with employer pension duties and responsibilities regarding maternity leave and sickness pay entitlement. It is essential that all applicants have eligibility to work in the UK.

Interviews for this post will take place on the Monday 19th March (evening) and Tuesday 20th March (morning) 2018.

Applications must be received by Tuesday 13th March at 12 noon.
