Richmond and Wandsworth Council

Wandsworth Council is recruiting two part time Arts and Culture Programme and Partnership Managers. In December 2021, Wandsworth Council adopted an ambition ten year Arts and Culture Strategy 2021-31. The strategy sets out we will be innovative, collaborative and successfully embed Arts and Culture at both the heart of Council’s work and within residents’ lives. As we move into delivering this vision, we are expanding the team to manage the different goals within the strategy.

As one of Wandsworth’s Arts and Culture Programme and Partnership Managers, you will be focussing on the delivery and rollout of specific sections of the Arts and Culture Strategy 2021-2031. We are seeking two experienced and dynamic arts professionals to join the team and lead on at least two of the goals outlined in the strategy.

We would particularly welcome experience in:

  • Delivering cultural place-shaping as part the borough’s emerging local plan
  • Economic growth of the borough to support the existing and helping to grow the borough’s cultural ecology
  • Health and wellbeing and delivering joint initiatives with public health, CCGs and social prescribing
  • Developing creative and cultural responses to climate change as part of Wandsworth’s drive to be the greenest inner London Borough and carbon neutral by 2030.
  • How we champion access for all in every aspect of our work
  • We welcome a job share arrangement with a view of matching skills and experience to outlined goals. Each part time role would consist of 18 hours per week.

The successful candidates will join a proactive and award-winning Arts Service, within a borough that prides itself on delivering a wide range of creative opportunities for everyone living, working and visiting the borough.
