CPP Project Director, Arts At The Mill CIC (T/A The Old Courts)


We are looking for an exceptional creative leader and an enabler of others, who strives to provide equal access to world-class arts and culture for all and advocate widely for how creativity can transform lives.

Down To Earth is one of the 39 projects initiated by Arts Council England’s national Creative People and Places (CPP) programme. Wigan borough is known for its industrial past. But the landscape of peatlands, coalfields, and brownfield sites, which have natural resources that have been exploited since Roman times and fuelled the industrial revolution, are now a complex ecosystem of diverse wetlands and woodlands, offering inspiration, refuge, and engagement. Led by residents, Down To Earth will re-invigorate and re-purpose this post-industrial terrain by cultivating and nurturing world-class arts across the borough.

The purpose of the job is to lead the delivery of all aspects of the CPP Programme, supported by the CPP delivery team, in achieving the objectives of the CPP Funding Agreement from Arts Council England.

We are looking for:

● A highly motivated, organised individual who is able to think strategically, effectively manage budgets over £1m, develop income & identify new opportunities.

● A leader excited to build a team, develop its talent and foster a supportive and positive team culture that enables colleagues to thrive.

● A comfortable communicator, able to operate and influence at a strategic senior level whilst being able to seamlessly build deep and lasting relationships with communities. With funders, you will be experienced in monitoring and reporting, developing meaningful and long-lasting relationships
