Established in 1989, Wysing Arts Centre is a progressive organisation in a rural setting. We enable artists and publics to engage their imagination freely and take creative risks; we believe that everybody has the right to time and space for creativity, away from the distractions of daily life.
The site is ten miles from Cambridge city. It holds 20 subsidised studios, accommodation for up to 80 visiting artists annually, recording and ceramics studios, flexible space to experiment, present and learn, fields, woodland, and several outdoor artworks. Work made at Wysing is seen worldwide. An accessible digital offer increases reach and archives our work; our youth programme empowers future generations.
The Deputy Director is central to the delivery of Wysing’s ambitious activity. The Deputy Director works closely with the Director and Wysing’s senior management team, contributing actively and creatively to the shaping and delivery of Wysing’s sustainability, as well as overseeing organisational operations. Line managing a team of four people, in addition to freelancers and contractors, the Deputy Director supervises administration, site and resource management, financial management, staffing, and governance.
We’re looking for someone with experience of managing organisational operations, including commercial income generation and with a commitment to environmental sustainability. We’d like to appoint someone with shared values, who has the same desire to create a more equitable world, and who understands the importance of supporting and championing artists, creativity and imagination.
