We are looking to hire a highly motivated individual to join our team in the piloting of a newly funded cross-sector Pop Culture and Social Justice initiative. We aim to develop a strategic space to leverage the reach and power of pop culture for social justice goals, specifically in relation to migrants and refugees in the UK.
Working collaboratively as part of a team, you will be responsible for forging a range of cross-sector conversations across the arts, media, entertainment, voluntary and philanthropy sectors with a view to enabling more partnership working. You will have demonstrable experience and knowledge of liaising across different aspects of the creative and culture industries; and be a confident networker who is able to bring diverse people and sectors together. You will have strong communication and interpersonal, diplomatic and influencing skills and be flexible in your approach to this work. You’ll also have strong organisational, event planning and producing skills and be able to prioritise a varied workload whilst working well under pressure to meet deadlines.
Since this is a new role, you will be expected to respond with flexibility to the changing needs of the project and organisation.
Counterpoints Arts aims to attract and retain talented people from all backgrounds. We particularly encourage applications from black, Asian, ethnic minority, and disabled applicants as these groups are currently underrepresented in the cultural sector.
To express your interest in the role, please send a cover letter and your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org by 9th April 2018 with the subject ‘Application Pop Culture Creative Producer’.
