Current Opportunities

Programme Assistant: A Weston Jerwood Creative Bursary 2020-22 Fellowship
Fixed term 12 month contract
37.5 hours a week

The Programme Assistant role is designed specifically for someone early in their career and for whom economic disadvantage has been a barrier to a career in the cultural sector.
As part of YSP’s commitment to diversifying the workforce and contributing to vital change in the sector, we recognise that fair access to working in arts and culture is an urgent issue for people who have experienced economic disadvantage and for people of colour. These groups and the intersections between are still significantly under-represented amongst employees of UK arts organisations.
Mentoring and a professional development programme are offered to the candidate once in post.

To apply for the role, please answer the questions in the recruitment pack in writing or an audio file, and send to hr@ysp.org.uk with the email subject P&C Application for role of Programme Assistant (WJCB).
Please include a completed Weston Jerwood Creative Bursary Monitoring Form and YSP Equality and Diversity Monitoring Form.

Championing Diversity
Yorkshire Sculpture Park was founded in 1977 to enable fairer cultural access and opportunity, and we are committed to being part of change towards a fairer world. We do not tolerate discrimination in any form and are proactive in our programme, policies and behaviours to address inequalities locally, nationally and internationally. We recognise that economic, social and cultural disadvantage is complex and intersectional and shape our activity accordingly. Diversity and equality are crucial to the arts because they release the true potential of our nation’s artistic talent – from every background. At YSP, we support Arts Council England’s mission – great art and culture for everyone. We share ACE’s commitment to promote and embed diversity in our workforce and cultural programme.

You are encouraged to share any access requirements you would have to participate in interviews in the covering email/letter of your application. Although we anticipate interviews taking place via an online platform such as Zoom, we appreciate this may not work for everyone and will make any reasonable adjustment required.
