Executive Director, Manchester City of Literature
Deadline: Fri 14 Jun 2019
Manchester was designated a UNESCO City of Literature in 2017. A new charitable organisation is being established to coordinate Manchester City of Literature and we are looking for a dynamic leader to join us at this exciting time to help shape this brand-new organisation.

There will be an Executive Office, which will report to a Board of Trustees, working with a wider Partnership Network, to ensure the designation celebrates the diverse range of voices in Manchester and is truly owned by the city at large.

We are looking to appoint a Director for a three-year period (with the possibility of extension) who will lead the organisation within the city, region, and internationally, working with a diverse set of stakeholders and partners. We want someone who can commit to ensuring that diversity and inclusion are at the heart of Manchester City of Literature, and that the organisation truly represents the rich diversity of Manchester’s voices.

You should have experience of delivering high quality cultural projects within a complex environment. You will have experience of developing partnerships with education providers, cultural partners and community groups, and excellent planning skills and confidence in dealing with a wide range of people.

£42,000 per annum, pro rata. Working pattern: 28 hours per week, equivalent to a 0.8 FTE position. This is a flexible role with some evening and weekend work.
