Bishopsgate Institute is a home for ideas and debate, learning, and enquiry. We are a small, fiercely independent charity with our own extraordinary premises at the crossroads of the City, Spitalfields and the East End, where culture, heritage, and learning meet. Bishopsgate Institute was "erected for the benefit of the public" in 1894, with the motto "I never stop learning". Our purpose has not changed.
Bishopsgate Institute is looking for a Programme Manager on a permanent basis.
At Bishopsgate Institute we’re looking for a Programme Manager to join our friendly team to develop an innovative programme of public events. You'll be a creative and highly organised manager, with proven experience of developing successful programmes within an adult education, heritage or cultural context.
From the history of protest to the history of drag, via swing dancing and podcasting, the topics we explore are varied and sometimes challenging. You’ll relish that challenge and diversity.
As well as planning events, you will manage and support the programme team, and work collaboratively with staff across the organisation and a wide range of external partners. You will be responsible for setting and monitoring against audience and financial targets and oversee the evaluation of our programme activity.
Successful applicants will demonstrate a keen understanding of Bishopsgate Institute’s unique offer, and a passion for the work we do here.
We only accept direct applications, and we do not accept CVs. Please no agencies.
Applicants should visit our website to apply
Application Deadline: 10am Monday 14 June
First Interviews will be held: Tuesday 22 June
We value and celebrate diversity, and we welcome applications from under-represented communities in our sector, including Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic communities, LGBTQ+, non-binary, neurodiverse and disabled candidates. We want to make sure we represent the society in which we work but recognise that the cultural sector still has much work to do in this area. If you have any questions on our hiring process or inclusivity policies, please contact us.
