The Risky Cities: Living with Water in an Uncertain Future Climate’ is a research project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council as part of the UK Climate Resilience Programme. The project uses arts and humanities approaches to build climate awareness and help communities become more flood resilient. This includes an ambitious programme of artistic events, from community-based arts and heritage activities to large-scale productions developed in collaboration with project partners including Absolutely Cultured and the National Youth Theatre.
The Risky Cities project is seeking to recruit a Creative Producer to oversee the development, delivery and evaluation of this programme in collaboration with the project’s research team.
The successful candidate will have experience in arts, theatre or events producing and will have practical working knowledge and experience of the systems, processes and procedures associated with arts production; have the ability to manage projects, oversee budgets and deliver events to pre-determined timescales. Candidates should be able to plan and prioritise their own work and may be required to supervise the work of others and monitor progress within agreed objectives ensuring the effective use of resources; whilst also being able to use their initiative and judgement to address and resolve problems with minimal guidance and instructions from senior colleagues.
The main focus of the work will involve the management of the arts and cultural events comprising the Risky Cities cultural programme, ensuring that these events are successfully delivered, and that they meet the research and creative objectives set by the Risky Cities team.
This is a part time, fixed term role at 0.5 FTE (18.25 hours per week).
