Young People in the Arts Assistant Project Managers & Administrative Manager
About Young People in the Arts
Young People in the Arts (YPIA) is a social network for arts professionals at the outset of their careers. We run a monthly programme of talks, professional development opportunities and networking drinks YPIA has a diverse membership base covering all major arts disciplines, and although currently most of our activity is based in London, we are increasingly branching out into other regions in the UK.
About the positions
YPIA is run by a team of friendly volunteers, who are all involved in organising events as part of the monthly talks season, and often get involved in aspects of planning, marketing, administration and relationship building as well. We are currently looking to take on some new volunteers to join our committee to help us with the planning and delivery of our season of events in 2019-2020.
Assistant Project Manager
Reports to: Director of Planning and Project Managers
Reports to: Director of Finance and Partnerships
We are looking for enthusiastic new committee members from across the arts industries who are keen to dedicate some of their time and creative ideas to organising events for YPIA and growing our cultural network, while developing experience and learning new skills. We seek people who are not afraid to use their initiative, and who demonstrate enthusiasm for working in the arts. Having a good knowledge of current issues in the arts sector is desirable, and so is previous experience of organising and marketing events.
The amount of time you spend on YPIA depends on how much time you’re willing to give, although we usually require you to be on the project teams of at least two events per season. Typically, this means you wouldn’t spend more than four hours per week on YPIA business, and probably much less during periods in which you don’t help to run an event. The current committee all do this alongside full-time jobs, so if you don’t mind giving up a few hours of your time, it is perfectly doable. Full committee meetings take place approximately three times a year, and are held in central London on weekdays after work, typically from 18:30-20:00.
If you require financial assistance with travel expenses to attend any meetings or events, Young People in the Arts may be able to provide assistance. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about this.
