  • FEE UP TO £8,000


As we come to the end of the three-year Arts Council Collection National Partners Programme, we are looking for an experienced Project Co-ordinator to programme and oversee a series of training workshops, and a legacy film of our New Voices Programme.


Managing an overall budget of up to £22,000 we are asking you to achieve the following:

  • Liaising closely with the gallery Programme Team, and other colleagues, you will devise a series of workshops and events for each of the curator groups that we have worked with. Creative workshops will be delivered by local and national makers. You will be responsible for project managing and reporting on this programme, which has a budget of up to £6,000.
  • Liaising with the Director, you will organise and oversee legacy training by national specialists for gallery staff and volunteers to ensure the knowledge gained through working in partnership with the different groups is embedded and disseminated throughout our organisation. We envisage this to be whole organisational training covering the following areas: Unconscious Bias; LGBTQIA+, Disability and Diversity. Plus, training to improve organisational productivity and good practice: climate literacy; time management; recruitment and HR; Health & Safety; exhibition technical and digital training; and brand focus and maximising earned income training. This project has a budget of £10,000.
  • Liaising with the Programme Team, you will commission a film maker to create a legacy film documenting the impact of the National Partners Programme on the communities we have worked with. With our Digital Producer you will deliver and market this film, which has a budget of £6,000.

Please note all projects must be completed by 31 Aug 2022 with a further month available for project review and dissemination.


We want to encourage more people with disabilities or other protected characteristics to feel welcome here, so if you have any experience of the kind of barriers these visitors might face, that could be very useful as Project Co-ordinator.

The 2019 Arts Council England Diversity Report highlights that people from a Black and minority ethnic background and disabled people continue to be under-represented across the arts and cultural workforce. We therefore welcome applications from the global majority.

We are interested in your ability to be able to carry out this role, which is not dependent upon qualifications, but relevant skills and transferable experience.

As users of the Disability Confident Scheme, we guarantee to interview a representative proportion of disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for the vacancies.

Please send a document explaining why you are right for the role and your previous experience to: [email protected]  by 9:00 on Mon 23 May 2022, along with a completed Equal-Opps-Form

We intend to engage someone to start around the 01/06/2022


Through the New Voices Programme, we worked with groups such as Black Voices Cornwall; WILD Young Parents Project; young LGBTQIA+ people from across Cornwall; and a group socially prescribed to the gallery by their GPs, as well as a number of schools and young people.
