Job description

Talitha Arts is an integrative creative arts charity that offers creative arts workshops to those who have experienced trauma (through trafficking, living with dementia, domestic and sexual abuse, and homelessness).

If you are a passionate leader who believes in the power of the creative arts to transform lives, are a natural team leader who loves to work with others, have experience working with vulnerable people, love to devise and develop creative arts workshops and training sessions, and are willing to work flexibly with therapeutic intent but outside a clinical framework, this may be the role for you.

We are seeking an artist and/or arts therapist (from any creative arts background) with experience in integrative arts practice to steer Talitha’s therapeutic arts workshops and training. The ideal candidate will have a qualification in a therapeutic arts field such as Art, Drama, Dance, and will be passionate about the power of the creative arts to bring healing, restoration and transformation. The role is home-based but will require travel into London for all meetings and programmes. 

Creativity is at the heart of everything we do, and therefore we are seeking someone who shares our belief in the transformative power of the creative arts and can reflect our creative and relational ethos in their approach to training and workshops. Talitha is a charity with Christian foundations, and while this position is open to those of all faiths and none, we are seeking someone who is sympathetic to our Christian roots and values. 

At Talitha, we recognise the inequity regarding employment and opportunities brought about by structural oppression and marginalisation. Thus, we encourage and warmly welcome applications from underrepresented groups such as ethnic minorities, those with disabilities and LGBTQI+ candidates. 

If applying through CharityJob, please include a cover letter alonside your CV.
