Join our team as the new Administrator

We’ve nearly recruited our full team as Unlimited transitions into an independent organisation. We’ve two more roles to fill – our next trainee, and our new administrator. Whilst Unlimited will have a geographically dispersed workforce which means people can work for us from anywhere in the UK, for both these roles we might give preference for people who might be able to pop into our Wakefield hub to work a couple of times a week, as that becomes possible again. Links to full job packs in multiple access formats included below.  

Since 2013, Unlimited has awarded more than £4.7 million to over 400 ambitious disabled artists and companies, through commissions, awards, and support, which have been seen by or engaged with more than four million people globally and online, making it the largest supporter of disabled artists worldwide. That means there is a lot to administrate! 

Unlimited focuses on arts commissioning, to embed work by disabled artists within the UK and international cultural sectors, reach new audiences, and shift perceptions of disabled people. Unlimited has been delivered by the disability-led arts organisation Shape Arts and arts-producing organisation Artsadmin since 2013, and is currently funded by Arts Council England, Arts Council of Wales, Creative Scotland, and the British Council amongst others. 

Unlimited is transitioning into being an independent organisation from 2022, with a new mission and new values, a new way of working and a new staff team, hence this recruitment process.

Access: Unlimited is delighted to meet reasonable adjustments, to adjust existing practices and procedures to meet access requirements, and support all team members to apply to Access to Work to cover relevant costs.
