Market Place is recruiting

''

After two and a half years at Market Place I’m moving on to pastures new in January, pursuing opportunities to freelance and to develop my partnership programming theatre and performance with Battersea Arts Centre. It’s been a challenging and interesting journey with Market Place where I have seen artists and communities take great strides in the reach and ambition of the arts in Fenland and Forest Heath. Working with local communities we’ve created lots of new opportunities for people in the market towns to take part in the arts, and supported local creatives to explore new areas of work, partnerships and opportunities. With the 2018 programme in development and our recent successful bid for Phase 2 funding the future looks very strong for the arts in Forest Heath and Fenland. The Market Place Consortium and ADEC Trustees have agreed a new management structure with three new exciting roles to replace myself, and, in part, Catherine Mummery, who is also moving on to new adventures, and who will be greatly missed.

Now we need to recruit enthusiastic, entrepreneurial and creative people to take on the challenge of Market Place into the future. Could that be you? Please do look at these roles and consider applying and being part of Market Place’s future success — Kate Hall, Project Director Market Place:

Market Place Creative Manager
£32,000 per annum (40 hours per week)
Fixed term post until 31st October 2021

Closing date for applications: 12 noon, Friday 12th January 2018
Interviews: week beginning 22nd January 2018

We are seeking to appoint a full-time Creative Manager to lead and manage the artistic delivery of the Market Place project. The successful candidate will work alongside the Babylon ARTS Operations & Development Manager and with a Market Place Creative Producer in the creation, planning, development, delivery and facilitation of this diverse and imaginative arts programme. The opportunity for the recruitment for this role follows a restructure which will see the creation of this new post, plus an Operations & Development Director and Market Place Creative Producer to deliver the extension period for Phase1 and a new three year Phase 2 Market Place programme.
The ideal candidate should be able to demonstrate experience in leadership and management of multi-strand artistic programmes, a commitment to supporting people and communities who are not currently engaged in the arts, rigorous and responsive project management and experience of inspiring, motivating, and upskilling others.

For more information please follow this link.

Operations & Development Director
£35,000 per annum (pro rata)
Fixed term post (4 days a week) until 31st October 2021

Closing date for applications: 12 noon, Friday 12th January 2018
Interviews: week beginning 22nd January 2018

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 will see the creation of three new positions – an Operations & Development Director, Market Place Creative Manager and Creative Producer to deliver the extension period for Phase1 and a three year Phase 2 Market Place programme.
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.
