About the role

Bradford district’s year of culture is set to deliver more than 1,000 new performances and events, a series of major arts festivals and major national and international collaborations. To do this we need a team of dedicated, passionate, and enthusiastic people.

We have an exciting opportunity for a Community Participation Manager to join our growing team. Reporting to the Director of Creative Engagement & Participation, you’ll be helping to ensure creative opportunities are district wide. We are looking for someone adept at planning, project managing, commissioning and delivering high-quality creative engagement and participation programmes with communities. You will be working with creative and community partners and artists to achieve breadth and depth.

You will be experienced at maximising impact by developing popular and accessible programmes that have clear aims and are welcoming and well- communicated across the Bradford District. If you have exemplar experience of developing and managing creative community engagement and participation programmes that are people-led and that communities are enthused, inspired and up-skilled by, then we would love to hear from you.
