Contract: Permanent, working 35 hours per week.

The role

You’ll be part of the Advocacy and Communications team and your focus will be delivering our internal communication campaigns. Using digital tools and channels, as well as offline activity, you will build engaging content that is clear and has impact with an audience of around 500 members of staff at the Arts Council.

You will also support our national communication strategy, and you will help craft content and campaigns aligned to the strategy.

  • good writing and editing skills

Why work at the Arts Council?

Arts Council England is the national public development and investment agency for art and culture. Our mission is ‘Great art and culture for everyone’. Many of us are artists or have worked in arts and culture. But many others aren’t – and that’s not a problem. We employ passionate and creative people with expertise in many different fields.

Building an inclusive work environment

It’s important that our staff reflect the communities we serve – having access to a variety of personalities, skills and outlooks enables us to truly represent England’s cultural identity. Disabled people, those from Black and minority ethnic backgrounds and people under 30 are under-represented in our workforce, so we particularly encourage applications from people in these groups.
