Our anti-racist work on recruitment and retention

We are a friendly team comprising around 25 people where everyone’s contribution is valued. We acknowledge both that Artsadmin is currently a majority white organisation and our need to become an organisation that reflects the diversity of the country around us. This can only be addressed through deep, ongoing, active anti-racist training and policy-making, which is now underway.  

Our Recruitment Approach

We are particularly interested in hearing from people who are underrepresented in the sector, such as those who identify as D/deaf and/or disabled, those from low socio-economic backgrounds, people of African or Caribbean heritage, South Asian heritage, East Asian heritage, West Asian heritage, Central Asian heritage, South East Asian heritage, people of Middle East and North African heritage* and those who have experienced racism. By the term ‘those who have experienced racism’, we are referring to individuals who have experienced discrimination based on the colour of their skin, race and/or their culture. 
*#BAMEOver – A Statement for the UK, Sept 2020

For the recruitment of this role, we are committed to ensuring that there is:

  • A person of colour on the interview panel
  • Interviews guaranteed for those who identify from the Global Majority* and meet our minimum essential criteria in the person specification.
  • A chance to meet some of the team at interview stage to give insight into the organisational culture, as well as a chance to ask questions outside the interview

And that, once in role, any successful candidate who identifies as part of the Global Majority will have access to an external coach or mentor to provide support for working in a majority-white team during their first year at Artsadmin.

In using the term ‘Global Majority’ we refer to people who identify as Black, Asian, Brown, dual-heritage, indigenous to the global south, and or have been racialised as ‘ethnic minorities’.

Access support

Access support is available for all applications, including alternative formats and tailored support. If, for access reasons, you’d prefer to meet one of our team to talk through these guidelines or would like to submit your application in another format like video, please contact or call 020 7247 5102.

Access support for the application process

If you need an access worker to help you to apply, we understand it is good practice that this is someone nominated by the applicant requiring assistance, as many people will regularly use the same note taker or interpreter. You can request this support by emailing We can pay for support such as: 

  • Note taking support to help a disabled applicant in meetings or to complete the application form.
  • British sign language (BSL) interpretation support for Deaf applicants in one-to-one meetings and translation of applications made in BSL into English.
  • Personal assistants for people with experience of the mental health system and for people with learning disabilities.

We will be working on the basis of up to £200 per day of support towards access. A quote for the access support services will need to be obtained and sent to then a fee agreed with us for its delivery. The access support worker should submit their invoice to Artsadmin. Once we have confirmed with you that work has been carried out satisfactorily, we can authorise payment.

The provision of access support does not require an application to be submitted. Applicants can access information on our commission and then decide not to apply. 

For open call and opportunities, awards or commissions for artists, we cannot pay for project development, such as the cost of an arts worker, development consultant, producer or bid writer to help people apply or translate from verbal languages (other than British Sign Language).

Access support for employees
If you are successful in getting a job at Artsadmin, we would do an access requirement audit as part of the induction process to identify and make a plan to meet your access needs. We have experience in supporting employees with Access to Work applications.
