People, Culture and Change Manager
Salary: £38,000 – £40,000
Type of contract: Permanent, full-time
Reporting to: Executive and Artistic Directors
Deadline for applications: 5pm on 24 September 2021
First interviews: w/c 11 October 2021
Artsadmin is looking for a dynamic, imaginative people professional who can help us build a more inclusive and diverse organisational culture where all staff flourish. This is a new, full-time post with scope and support to make a difference to a well-regarded arts charity that has been instrumental in achieving a wealth of ground-breaking work since 1979.
Informed by work Artsadmin has done over the last 2 years, which has included the development of an Anti-Racism Strategy, an Accountability Committee for Board and staff, regular all-staff work on access and inclusion and on the development of a Transitioning at Work policy, we are now planning for 2022 – 2026. As part of that process, we are committed to making strategic shifts to our ways of working including our HR systems, policies and procedures.
Artsadmin is a company of creative people working with artists to develop and make performance projects for local, national and international audiences in a variety of places and contexts. This is an exciting time to join us, as we embark on the next chapter of our work, updating our programme of activity, refreshing our brand and reviewing our connections to our local area of Aldgate East.
If you would like to discuss the role informally, please feel free to contact Deb Chadbourn, Executive Director or Róise Goan, Artistic Director. firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com
Our anti-racist work on recruitment and retention
We are a friendly team comprising around 24 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.
For recruitment, we are committed to ensuring that there is:
- At least one person of colour on the interview panel
- 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
Once in the role, any successful candidate who is a person of colour will have access to an external coach or mentor to provide support in a majority white community. This support will be paid for by Artsadmin.
If you have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org. This email account is regularly checked.
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 email@example.com 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 email@example.com 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.
