Director, Ledbury Poetry
Deadline: Mon 27 Nov 2023
Ledbury Poetry is a leading organisation in the UK for all things poetry. We welcome applications to cover our Director Chloe Garner's sabbatical for 18 months.

Having successfully led the organisation for more than seventeen years, our Director, Chloe Garner, will be taking an eighteen-month sabbatical from April 2024 to September 2025. Now, Ledbury Poetry is seeking an exceptional individual to take the helm of the organisation while she is away.

As an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation, Ledbury Poetry encourages creativity and the exploration of language in all its forms for everyone, whatever their age or background. Over the past five years, the organisation has grown far beyond its origins as a ten-day summer showcase. It now encompasses a year-round programme including exciting education and outreach activities.

It is deeply rooted in the community of Ledbury - a place with strong historical, poetical associations yet international in its scope and reach. It showcases poetry from across the globe and its groundbreaking Ledbury Critics Programme leads the way on diversity and inclusion in the publication, promotion and reception of contemporary poetry.

Working hours: 5 days per week. Salary range: £34,000 - £36,000 dependent upon experience. Contract duration: 18 months, fixed term. We can offer hybrid working arrangements. However, we will expect the successful candidate to spend 3 days per week in Ledbury at the Poetry House.

If you are interested in joining us, please visit our website for further information about the duties and responsibilities of the role.

Deadline for application: Monday 27 November 2023

Interviews: Friday 15 December 2023
