The Voluntary Arts Festival is Voluntary Arts’ flagship public participation initiative that takes place each May over ten days and encourages self-led creative, cultural groups to put on taster events or showcase their group in local communities.
An experienced project manager or peer organisation is sought to work with Voluntary Arts Scotland to take forward some existing partnerships and activity in Scotland, currently in the planning stages for May 2017. This should offer the right candidate an exciting, time-specific opportunity to help steer one of Scotland’s most participatory arts festivals.
You should be a self-starter who has the confidence and experience to implement activity led by a clear steer from the Voluntary Arts Scotland Director. Essential skills are project management, fundraising, social media, and stakeholder engagement. A desirable skill is confidence with basic graphic design.
A total of £5,000 (inclusive of VAT) is the available consultancy fee. This fee does not include reasonable travel expenses incurred in pursuit of Voluntary Arts Festival related activity. Expenses will be agreed in advance with the Voluntary Arts Scotland Director but should not exceed £500 in total.
We invite proposals for the time commitment that a consultant can offer us between December 2016 – June 2017 and are open to all realistic, achievable and creative proposals.
The consultant will be responsible for his or her own tax arrangements and ICT equipment but can make use of office facilities at Voluntary Arts Scotland’s office at Creative Exchange, Edinburgh, including desk space, phone, meeting rooms, and Wi-Fi.
A new, full-time Engagement Officer post will be recruited in April 2017 (to begin work June 2017) and the successful project management consultant will be welcome to apply for this job.
