Vacancy: Children and Young People’s Producer

Full time (£24,359- £29,958)

We are Heart of Glass, a St Helens, Merseyside-based arts organisation delivering Creative, People and Places in St Helens and a wider programme of socially engaged practice across the Liverpool City Region.

We believe that art has the power to bring us together and create change, for the people of our community, and the place we call home. We unlock stories, reimagine public spaces, ask awkward questions and forge new connections. Why? Because we know that art can transform lives and deeply affect our relationship with the world around us. Art is the starting point for each and every journey.

We are looking for an Children and Young People’s Producer who will work with the Director and Head of Programme to develop a unique and distinctive programme that will engage young people in rich and diverse cultural opportunities through the delivery of high quality and ambitious collaborative arts projects. Programme areas include young people with disabilities, young asylum seekers and refugees, young carers, independent young people and schools.

We are looking for someone who enjoys making new connections with people, can think on their feet and find creative solutions. This is an exciting and challenging role for someone who has enthusiasm and passion for the work we create and is seeking an opportunity to develop and grow their experience in producing great art with children and young people.

Heart of Glass is a busy working environment, managing multiple projects at any one time, so the role will require you to be a self-starter, used to making decisions and thinking creatively. You will be happy working on your own and within the team. You will have prior experience of working on art projects with children and young people in both community and educational contexts.

Closing date for the post is 12 noon on Monday 16th September 2019
