In-Situ is seeking a graduate trainee to work alongside the team to support our programme of socially engaged arts activity. The trainee will provide support with the planning, delivery and monitoring of events, project administration and engagement support.

This is a great opportunity for a recent graduate or equivalent who wants to forge a career in the arts, particularly in socially engaged and environmentally focused practice. You will receive input and relevant training around social arts practice, working directly with communities and in partnerships. This role will enable you to build skills, knowledge and understanding of how to devise, develop, deliver and manage projects and programs. 

We are seeking a highly motivated and forward-thinking person, interested in collaborative art approaches and social arts practice. This is an amazing opportunity for the right candidate to spend 18 months developing skills in the development and delivery of community and environmentally focused arts projects.

You will gain an insight and understanding of how ideas are developed from conception to realisation and knowledge of arts administration and production processes whilst building practical and interpersonal skills needed to work in the public arts sector.

The selected candidate will work collaboratively with a small and supportive team in a non-hierarchal setting and be given support through an agreed mentoring programme with In-Situ’s core team.

In-Situ is embedded in Pendle, which benefits from a multi-cultural community and we encourage applications from people based in the region and applications from diverse backgrounds.
