Jerwood Arts core values are imaginative, responsible and independent, and we are keen to support two new voices to join our team that will bring different perspectives and lived experiences to how we manifest these.

We works across most artforms, and our staff team currently represent a good spread of arts and cultural interests. We are well served with visual arts specialists and are seeking to increase the team’s knowledge around performing arts, in particular music and dance.

We are known for advocating for better conditions for artists through our work, including more inclusive recruitment practices. Over the past two years, our funding has been reaching increasingly diverse artists, curators and producers, and as our team grows, we want to ensure it better represents those we work with to best inform our work.

We had to abandon a round of recruitment in March due to the impact of Covid-19, and we are excited to have this opportunity to appoint now. We welcome previous applicants to apply again if they can see themselves fulfilling one of these new roles.

Our staff are supported through a combination of line management, personal professional development and team training, most recently in coaching skills. We offer flexible working, cycle to work scheme and a discount at the Gentleman Baristas’ School House cafe.

We are already looking forward to inducting our new team members to feel comfortable working with us and understand Jerwood Arts’ approach, and we can provide role-specific training to develop your skills in areas where you may have less experience and/or feel less confident. Supporting our staff means not asking them to represent any particular group and ensuring they can fulfil their potential regardless of their background, identity or situation.

Please contact us at or 020 7261 0279 if you have any questions about this role, if you have any technical issues with our form or if you have any access requirements that we can support you with during the application process. We will respond to email enquiries within three working days.
