Job description

The Organisation

Space2 is a small, award winning arts and social change charity based in East Leeds that punches above its weight.  Space2 develops and refines participatory arts practice in order to initiate and build engagement and community resilience, offering a programme of arts-driven activities that build confidence, social networks and community capacity.

We work with communities who live in areas where there is limited access to artistic activity.  At the heart of our practice are the principles of co-production and creativity, enabling everyone who takes part from artists, staff members, volunteers and local people to have an equal voice in the process and outcomes. 

Our newly revised staff structure and job descriptions are couched within this co-production framework and are an essential element of preparing the Company for the future.  A Company that nurtures its staff and community of artists that includes local people of all generations and experiences and works creatively to address social outcomes together.

You will be values driven, committed to social change and believe in the arts as a vehicle for change.  You will need plenty of initiative and drive, be highly detailed, able to operate under pressure, prioritise, and develop and implement operational business practices.  You will hold a relevant level 4 professional qualification or be qualified through experience.

The Offer

In return we offer, a new job for you to grow and develop, opportunity for training and development within the role, a competitive salary, an amazing environment to work in, within a fun, committed and hard-working team, with people who enjoy going to work every day!  Plus, all of the usual benefits, including 25 days holiday, pension, free parking and working 9.00 to 5.00 Monday to Friday.
