Deadline: Tuesday 25 February 2020

Voluntary Arts Scotland is looking for someone who is used to working collaboratively, with the ability to express the work that we do with a strong narrative. You will also be skilled in spotting opportunities for funding, with a proven track record of identifying and realising funding routes for great ideas.

As the national strategic development agency for all creative, cultural activity, everything we do at Voluntary Arts is about communicating stories, stories to policy-makers about the well-being benefits of active participation, stories that inspire new participants to try a creative activity at the Get Creative Festival each May and stories that celebrate innovation and imagination at our annual Epic Awards.

There will also be scope for the Voluntary Arts Scotland Development Officer to help support our partnership working in the Get Creative Festival (7 – 19 May 2020) with the BBC and other partners, for example by coordinating a micro-grant scheme for groups participating in the festival.

The post holder will work closely with the Voluntary Arts Scotland Director in pursuing new sources of income including applying for project grants, inviting donor income and ticketing events.

The successful candidate will be based at the Voluntary Arts Scotland studio at Custom Lane, Leith, but have the collegiate support of an established network of Development Officers across England. 

This is a part-time post, 15 hours per week. Hours can be flexible to take account of personal circumstances. There might be occasional evening and weekend work for which time off in lieu will be given.

Salary: £10,102 (based on £25,256 per annum pro rata) based within the Voluntary Arts Scotland Office in Leith, Edinburgh. This is a fixed-term post from 1 April 2020 to 31 March 2022.
