Arts and Events Manager Nine Elms
We are seeking an Arts and Events Manager for Nine Elms to join us on a fixed-term, contract until the end of March 2023.
The Nine Elms Delivery Team is responsible for ensuring that Wandsworth Council’s vision of a new world class urban neighbourhood at Nine Elms is achieved. The Council is committed to the area becoming a major new cultural hub for London and the Nine Elms Cultural Programme is one of the key ways we seek to achieve our vision for the creation of a vibrant and successful ‘place’ connected to the surrounding communities and to the rest of London. 2022 will see critical moments in the development of the scheme, including the opening of a new Town Centre around Battersea Power Station and the opening of a number of cultural anchor tenants in the area, supported by the recent launch of the two new Tube stations as part of the Northern Line Extension.
The successful candidate will have a proven track record of instigating or producing innovative and high-quality arts and cultural activities that engage local communities. You will be experienced in arts administration including contracting, budget monitoring and supporting marketing activity, and you will be confident in developing and maintaining strong relationships with a wide range of stakeholders, including schools.
We have worked hard since 2015 to raise the profile of the area and engage local people through arts and culture. We’re concentrating our efforts to build capacity locally so that the cultural offer will be sustainable over the long-term, and supporting the wider objectives of the Nine Elms programme in relation to community engagement, placemaking, meanwhile use and inward investment. Attracting and supporting significant cultural anchor tenants is key to this, and nurturing these relationships is vital to the success of this role. To achieve this you will be skilled in collaboration and partnership working, excel at verbal and written communications and demonstrate a passion for culture and place-making in relation to new and existing communities.
You will be working on an internationally recognisable regeneration project and be part of a team that is committed to making Nine Elms the best place that it can be, ensuring all residents benefit from the regeneration of the area, in line with the Council’s aim to be at the forefront in innovation in local government.
In return, we can offer you working arrangements that will enhance your work-life balance. These include a generous holiday allowance of 31 days plus bank holidays and a flexible working policy.
In addition, we offer a range of staff benefits such as membership of the Local Government contributory pension scheme, new technology scheme, interest-free loans on annual travel cards, discounts at many leisure activities, restaurants, shops and other establishments. A wide range of developmental opportunities are also offered.
