SSW is looking for a motivated individual to work as part of our small team, and be responsible for the management of the residency and artistic programme, as well as marketing and PR. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a full Application Pack or download here.
Description of Role
This year we are celebrating SSW’s 35th anniversary. Three years on from a major capital development we have fully implemented a new arts programme, which is running at full capacity with many residents coming from different parts of the world. The curation of EU-funded project, Frontiers in Retreat alongside a number of activities involving regional, national and international artists, has helped SSW establish itself as one of the foremost spaces for Sculpture research and experimentation in the UK. We are looking for a highly motivated individual, to join SSW’s team, to ensure this high level of programming and continue the smooth running of facilities, as well as being able to communicate and promote what we do.
The successful candidate will be managing the residency programme and facilities, welcoming and providing adequate administrative and technical support to artists and assisting in the delivery of the programme. This position is outward facing, being the main point of contact for our core activity, liaising with the community, and communicating our programme to a dispersed and remote audience. We are particularly looking for someone with experience in marketing who alongside the Director and external support as required, will be able to develop and implement an enhanced communications’ strategy.
