Artist/arts/health practitioner wanted to co-deliver creative wellbeing programmes for children and young people

Culture Shift is looking to recruit an arts practitioner to join its team delivering two afterschool creative wellbeing programmes: Telling Your Story (secondary) and Space to Create (primary) in 2019.

Each programme is designed to provide a safe, non-judgemental, nurturing space in which children and young people explore their own creativity, build confidence, and explore and problem solve around issues in their lives.  Children and young people are referred to the programmes by schools, and are often those needing additional support around emotional health and wellbeing.

We’d like to recruit people who can work flexibly and creatively in response to a group’s interest and needs.  Most importantly you will need experience of working with vulnerable children and young people, the ability to establish a good rapport with children and young people and good communication skills.  We would welcome applicants with youth work, arts/health experience or counselling/therapeutic skills. You should have a current DBS check and public liability insurance.

We are looking to recruit one practitioner able to work across both programmes, taking on one programme between January and March 2019 and two programmes between April and July 2019.  Sessions generally run weekly, between 3-5pm over an 8 week period. All of the schools are in Hastings.

Fee: £890/1190 per programme (higher rate for lead artist to include additional responsibilities)

Please email a CV and covering letter outlining your relevant experience, skills and interest and send to Catherine Orbach at catherine@cultureshift.org.uk by 5pm on Friday 9 November 2018.

Any questions email Catherine or call on 07796 306995

Follow up informal interviews in Hastings on Friday 23 November between 10-2.00pm

The programmes are funded by BBC Children in Need and Hastings Opportunity Area.
