Economic Development is seeking a highly motivated, skilled and enthusiastic individual to join their culture and heritage team, acting as the arts and events lead for the Council, providing the day to day management of the arts and events function. Working with the Service Manager Culture and Heritage, you will plan and implement an ambitious and innovative arts and events programme.
You will help to deliver the aims and objectives of relevant arts and events strategies and plans, increasing the profile of, and participation in, arts and events and generating economic and social value.
We are looking for someone with knowledge and understanding of all requirements relating to arts and events development, delivery, and operations, also with an understanding and proven ability to develop and deliver major events and community arts programmes.
The hours of work for this position are 37 per week, working Monday to Friday including some evenings and weekends in line with business needs.
The Council currently operates an excellent Flexible Working Hours Scheme which applies to this post. Subject to the needs of this business, this may allow employees to work between the hours of 6:00am-10:30pm. This role will be based within the Lancaster District. You must have relevant professional arts and events qualifications and/or experience and
excellent interpersonal and communications skills with the ability to work collaboratively and develop positive professional relationships and networks.
A full current UK driving licence is essential, as the post holder will be required to transport equipment on occasion. Reasonable adjustments can be made for those who are unable to drive due to a disability.
Earlier last year Lancaster City Council unanimously declared a climate emergency and will therefore work towards reducing carbon emissions to net-zero by 2030. As part of this role, you will be expected to participate and work towards reducing carbon emissions.
We are a Forces Friendly employer, and an Armed Forces Covenant committed organisation. We welcome applications from defence reserves and other members of our armed forces community.
