Office and Facilities Manager, Bedford Creative Arts

Description

BCA is a dynamic arts charity that has been working in Bedfordshire and beyond for over thirty years.  We bring artists and communities together to create high quality and ambitious art projects which involve the community in the making of the work. You will find us in places where you least expect art to happen, such as shopping centres, local libraries or on housing estates. Some of our projects involve working in areas for an extended period of time; such as our Clubhouse project, where we have been working on two streets in Bedford’s Queen’s Park.

We also work extensively in schools through our Culture Challenge programme which delivers artist-led experiences for children and young people in partnership with schools in Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire.

We are now looking for an Office and Facilities Manager to join our small team in Bedford, on a full time permanent basis for 37 hrs per/week. This role is varied and you can expect to work in a busy environment.  We are looking for someone with an attention to detail and a passion for managing the systems that make us efficient.  

We seek to be an inclusive organisation and promote equality of opportunity, but recognise that we and the wider arts sector need to take action to ensure that our workforce is representative of the communities we serve. Therefore, we actively encourage applications from under-represented groups, including Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) individuals and those who consider themselves to be disabled.

Application Process

To apply, you should submit your CV and a covering letter explaining why you feel you can bring to the role and our organization to Julie Born, our HR Consultant, at Julieborn@hrinitiatives.co.uk
