Apply for the Unlimited Traineeship 2019/20 at Artsadmin 

The open call of the Unlimited Traineeship based at Artsadmin is now open. This is an opportunity for someone that identifies as disabled looking to develop their arts and cultural management skills. Project Manager Clara Giraud tells us more. 

What is the job? 

This is a traineeship, and while it involves learning on the job and taking on a range of responsibilities, it is aimed at someone that might be new or have little professional experience of the arts and cultural sector. The traineeship is a part time role of 3 days a week for a minimum of 10 months, based in East London, at Artsadmin’s Toynbee Studios. It is an opportunity to get stuck in to the delivery of Unlimited, running up to the culmination of a range of our commissions and the Southbank Centre’s Unlimited Festival 2020. 

A history of traineeships 

Artsadmin has been hosting paid traineeships for many years, and this format developed as part of Unlimited to transform the cultural sector and ensure disabled people are fully embedded and represented within it. This opportunity is ring-fenced for a disabled person, and we will support the selected applicant with access-to-work procedures and ensuring reasonable adjustments as required. A diverse range of individuals have joined us as Unlimited trainees over the years, you can watch interviews of them here (audio-described versions here), and read a blog of recent trainee James Greenhalgh. 

How do I apply? 

Artsadmin’s recruitment process is through an online application portal, and shortlisted applicants are invited to complete an interview and a task. You will find all of the information about the position, the role description, person specification, and key dates of the selection process on Artsadmin’s website, through this link. If you have any questions, experience any barriers through the application process, or require anything in another format, please contact Clara at clara@artsadmin.co.uk or on 020 7247 5102. 

Deadline for applications: Tuesday 17 September 2019, 12 noon.
