The Role

In December 2021, Wandsworth Council adopted an ambition ten year Arts and Culture Strategy 2021-31. The strategy sets out how 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 deliver this vision, we are expanding the team to manage the different goals within the strategy.

As one of four fulltime equivalent Arts and Culture Programme and Partnership Managers serving the borough of Wandsworth, you will be focussing on the delivery and rollout of specific sections of the Arts and Culture Strategy 2021-2031.
