This is an exciting opportunity for someone with strong project management skills keen to grow the arts and health sector in Gloucestershire. You will need at least 5 years project management experience and a good understanding of the current UK plans to transform health and social  care, particularly the focus on self-management and the culture shift away from ‘fixing’ people towards ‘enabling’ people and communities.

CG recognises that there are people whose background and experience is under represented within the creative industries, both in Gloucestershire and nationally, including women, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people, disabled people and people who are D/deaf and neurodiverse. We believe that discrimination or exclusion based on these, or other characteristics or circumstances, represents a waste of talent and potential. We therefore particularly welcome applications from anyone in these groups keen to support and grow the arts and health sector in Gloucestershire.  

The contract is a fixed term for a period of 11 months from December 2018 - Nov 2019. The fee inclusive of travel and expenses is £15,000. This contract is offered on a freelance basis and the successful person will be responsible for their own NI and tax owed.  

Full details on the brief and how to apply can be downloaded below. Deadline for applications is Monday 3rd December 2018 at 12 noon. Interviews to be held in Gloucestershire on Thursday 13th Dec 2018
