Bidston Observatory Artistic Research Centre
Closing date: 7th May 2021
We are currently looking for a new Steward to join our team. This is a freelance contract for 6 months, 2 days per week (16 hours) & 2 overnight sleep-ins, billable at £260 p/w. There may be additional hours available as necessary to fulfil the scope of responsibilities within the post. This job involves some weekend and evening work, on a rota basis.
Bidston Observatory Artistic Research Centre (BOARC) is a not-for-profit study site that focuses on providing individual users and groups with a low cost, temporary place to dictate their own methods of work. The centre allows practitioners to come and stay together, to develop projects that require time and space in a flexible, non-pressured environment.
BOARC is an autonomous space run by the people who founded it, and you would be joining as part of the small team. The Stewarding role requires a range of soft skills, practical capabilities, and hands-on health & safety duties. Stewards will need to be responsive and flexible as part of this role, interested in the project as an experiment, as well as being aligned to the project’s values. We are a LGBTQ+ team with neuro-diverse members, actively non-racist, with an accountability policy. BOARC welcomes people from diverse backgrounds. An enhanced DBS is also required, as safeguarding is an occasionally required part of this role, and stewards sleep-in overnight on shift (N.B. it is not possible to live onsite). It is possible to use the facilities as part of this job.
