The successful candidate will work with the Senior Officer, Planning and Planning and Risk reps across the organisation to ensure that we have effective systems and processes in place to deliver the Arts Council’s strategic objectives, identify and manage risks, and produce annual reports on our effectiveness.

This is a key role at the heart of the organisation, and we are looking for someone to drive forward our organisational planning and performance reporting.  You will have a sound understanding and experience of:

  • operational or business planning in a large organisation

  • risk management and control frameworks 

You will also be highly organised, good at qualitative and quantitative analysis and a strong communicator.
