Project Manager/Producer, Protege


Protégé is an experimental learning initiative designing education and training pathways for under-served and marginalised young people whose complex learning needs go beyond what standard curriculum learning offers.

Protégé forms partnerships to create progression pathways for those described as ‘hard to reach and hard to teach’, who struggle with conventional progression to work and access to culture. 

Protégé is seeking to appoint a freelance project manager or producer to work alongside our project director to deliver a slate of new projects, including a landmark programme of work to develop migrant women’s heritage and media skills - enabling them to emerge from their invisibility and shape their own narrative.

Interested candidates should be able to demonstrate experience of delivering some of the following:

Skills/employability work with refugees and migrants

Arts Award or other accreditation

Creative/artistic skills workshops

Intergenerational workshops


Public events, talks and screenings

Websites and digital content management

The ideal candidate will have a good understanding of partnership working and delivery for multiple partners across multiple content platforms.

Protégé is committed to creating opportunities for underserved audiences and so applicants will need to demonstrate an enthusiasm for addressing the needs of diverse audiences and understanding of public engagement via social media and traditional media to ensure the project can engage audiences locally, nationally and globally across cultures and continents, and beyond the physical life of the exhibition at the British Library and Watermans Arts.  

Start date: ASAP

Salary: £30/35k pro rata / 3 days a week for up to 50 weeks
