Part-time (equivalent to 3 days per week)

36 months fixed term

Starting salary pro rata of £40,000 p.a. full-time equivalent: £24,000 p.a. actual

Based in Folkestone

We submitted a successful bid to the Great Place Scheme, and have secured funding for a three-year project, Pioneering Places: East Kent, to follow through on the commitment to embed arts, culture and heritage in local plans and decision-making.  With the Kent Cultural Transformation Board as a catalyst and key strategic partner, the East Kent partnership of the Creative Foundation, Turner Contemporary and Canterbury City Council/Marlowe Theatre will pilot new approaches within the Pioneering Places: East Kent project that enable cultural, community and civic organisations to work more closely together, to re-imagine East Kent’s future and to help deliver that future in concrete and sustainable ways.  The partnership will also work with organisations in Dover to develop a further exemplar approach there as well.

We are now thrilled to be recruiting a Project Director to establish and successfully deliver the central project, bringing together the learning and influence of all four local strands, and ensuring that joined up advocacy, research and evaluation spreads far and wide during and beyond our three-year project lifecycle.

We welcome applications from all sections of the community.
