Liverpool Cultural Collaboration Project Manager, LARC and COoL

  • Closes: 19th April 2021
  • Salary: Paid (£30k-40k pro rata)

In 2019, with support from Arts Council England and Liverpool City Council, LARC and COoL commissioned Augere Consulting to explore potential future ways of collaborative working.

With further support from Arts Council England, we now wish to appoint an individual or team to project manage and deliver the further development and implementation of new business-led operating and tiered membership models, which can be resourced in order to achieve the objectives of improved service delivery and real financial benefit through cost savings or increased income. This new model must help us meet the expectations as expressed in Arts Council England’s Let’s Create strategy, particularly in relation to organisational dynamism, and those of Liverpool City Council in relation both to its Cultural Strategy and to a likely reduction in the extent of its investment in core funding of the sector.

THE PROJECT MANAGER ROLE

The individual or team will work with members of LARC, COoL and the wider cultural sector to develop and implement a new collaborative framework for the sector.
