Fixed term post (4 days a week) until 31st October 2021

We are seeking to appoint an Operations & Development Director to provide leadership and management of the strategic priorities and finances of Babylon ARTS and directly manage its Arts Council England funded Market Place programme, reporting to both the Babylon ARTS (ADEC) Board of Trustees and the Market Place Consortium.
This role is funded 50/50 between Babylon ARTS and Arts Council England. The opportunity for the recruitment for this post follows a restructure which has seen the creation of three new positions – an Operations & Development Director, Market Place Creative Manager and a freelance Creative Producer to deliver the programme.
Market Place is a Creative People and Places (CPP) programme which is designed to develop new ways of engaging more people in and empowering them through great arts experiences in areas of least engagement. Supporting seven market towns of Fenland and Forest Heath to bring creativity, fun and excitement to the region; Market Place has an extension for its Phase 1 programme through to Autumn 2018 and Phase 2 will run from October 2018 – 2021.
The ideal candidate should be able to demonstrate strong leadership qualities with the ability to deliver business and financial planning and oversee implementation of a multi-arts, community led programme. An understanding of the local arts environment would be ideal but not essential.
