Projects Officer

The Projects Officer will play both a leading and supportive role across a range of projects led by The Old Courts.

The central activity that the Projects Officer will support is the Collaborative Touring Network (CTN). The Collaborative Touring Network is a growing national collective of arts organisations, working in areas of low cultural engagement to provide access to the arts for everyone. Led by The Old Courts, this network believes every town deserves perspective-changing live performance, and we work with artists and communities to make this possible in our places.

Internally, the Projects Officer will oversee this and other projects, and work with multiple departments to ensure activity is completed on time and to budget. Externally, you will work with partners (for example: cultural, heritage & community organisations, artists, Local Authority) to develop and deliver projects in ways that are collaborative and supportive. Day to day, the work is a rich balance of managing relationships, overseeing live projects, developing future projects, and when required, supporting the wider Development team to apply for funding to resource such projects.

The Projects Officer role will suit an excellent communicator who would describe themselves as a completer/finisher with an eye for detail. Whilst we always welcome an interest in the arts, we are also interested in hearing from people who bring project management experience from other sectors.

We welcome someone bringing fresh energy, insight, and new skills & experience into our workplace. We are actively seeking diversity of experience, and whoever you are, we would love to hear from you! We would love to receive applications from people who identify as working class, LGBTQIA+, deaf or disabled, care-experienced, young carers, young people of South, East and South East Asian heritage, African or Caribbean heritage, Gypsy, Roma or Irish Traveller heritage or Latinx heritage.
