The Young People and Schools Coordinator role will manage an inspiring programme of arts activity for young people and families from our new Grade 1 listed venue.
The successful candidate will have a track record of delivering high quality projects with young people and schools, working within an arts, heritage or museums setting. You will be a self-starter, who is passionate about working with young people and families from a diverse range of backgrounds to improve their outcomes through engagement in inspiring arts provision.
Grand Junction at St Mary Magdalene’s is a partnership between Paddington Development Trust and St Mary Magdalene Church, which has seen the restoration of the Grade 1 listed building, an outstanding example of neo-Gothic architecture. A new modern building has been added alongside, with a café, learning space, and wheelchair access to all levels. When we re-open in summer 2019 we will be a bustling hub of activities and events for families, young people, and the community, as well as continuing to be a place of worship. We have ambitious plans over the next few years for both our community and arts programme, which will welcome people of all faiths and none.
This will be an exciting time to join the team as we embed a programme of activities and events into the new venue. Reporting to the Community Heritage Programme Manager, you will be responsible for the delivery of our programme for young people, schools and families responding to the historic building and heritage of the local area. You will also be a key contributor to forward planning within a small team.
The successful candidate will be confident in both project management as well as facilitation of workshops for young people, schools and family audiences.
This role is funded by John Lyon’s Charity and National Lottery Heritage Fund.
