Manager, Photographic Collections Network (managed by Redeye)

Manager, Photographic Collections Network (managed by Redeye)

The PCN builds knowledge and enjoyment of the UK’s photo archives and collections and helps protect and share them for everyone. 

We are seeking a Manager for the Photographic Collections Network. The initial contract will be for 15 months, freelance, part-time, but our intention is to make this a permanent position, subject to funding. The fee is £36,000.

Late in 2018 the PCN had a second grant confirmed from Arts Council England. This allows us to build and strengthen the network, and our programme of events, knowledge sharing, advocacy and research. We are seeking a manager to co-ordinate that process and deliver the programme, working with the PCN director and our specialist steering group. The person we appoint will be highly motivated, self-driven, trustworthy, diplomatic and a great communicator. They will have significant experience of project management and some knowledge of organisational development. They will be fluent with IT, experienced at writing reports and proposals, and possibly have links or experience in the photography, art, cultural, museum or collection world.

The setting up of the PCN was led by Redeye, which is responsible for managing the funds of the Photographic Collections Network. You will technically be contracted to Redeye which is based in Manchester, but it could be possible for you to be based anywhere in the UK, though you would need to attend regular meetings in Manchester and London.
