Join the Team

Post: Senior Creative Workshop Leader
Posts available at: ArtWorks Thorpe Hesley, Rotherham and Barnsley
Salary: £25,954.50

Why ArtWorks? 
Art Works is a not-for-profit creative arts organisation that exists to support the development of artists with learning disabilities and/or autism. We are a collective of creatives that care about making a change to the artists we support, the disabilities arts movements and our local environment and community. We support our artists to contribute to society through artistic exploration, exhibitions, events, and volunteer placements.

What Does the Role Involve? 
We are looking for a creative individual with experience managing others, such as a team leader or management position. This does not have to be in a creative arts environment as we appreciate these skills are transferable. We are looking for someone with a creative background/skills - this could be art, photography, filmmaking, sculpture, animation, or textiles to name but a few. A creative degree is preferred. We need someone with good organisational skills who is willing to try new things.

As Senior Creative Arts Workshop Leader you will manage a small team of three and organise the day-to-day art activities for up to fifteen artists with learning disabilities, autism or both. The role involves running creative workshops, writing the weekly activity schedule and taking into consideration ArtWorks commissions and creative community commitments.

An important part of the role is talking with our artists about their dreams and aspirations and creating opportunities for their work to be exhibited, with support from the senior management team at Art Works. This role allows for creative and practical development, with access to lots of art materials and professional equipment and knowledge. With a staff team of 30 creatives working across ArtWorks, we are a hive of buzzing activity day in and day out. As a creative arts organisation, we are limited only by our imaginations and take on a wide range of projects, from mural work to film shoots, fashion shows to art competitions.

We ask that you have a car and acquire business insurance, as we attend lots of galleries, events, and workshops in other areas, supporting our artists to exhibit far and wide, as well as regularly having fun days out with the artists.
