We are looking for an experienced and driven individual to take the lead for the strategic development and management of darts’ Children and Young People programme.

darts makes high-quality, inclusive, creative experiences across the borough of Doncaster, open to everyone, in particular, those who have the least access to the arts.

Over the last 30 years, darts has grown to be one of the largest participatory arts organisations in the UK, working with around 7,000 Doncaster residents every year across the borough.  We also welcome around 40,000 people to The Point, our purpose-built arts centre.

We are an Arts Council National Portfolio Organisation with a national funding portfolio drawn from a range of trusts & foundations, institutional funders and local commissioners.

Over the past five years we have concentrated our efforts where we have the greatest impact, and where the local need is greatest: health and wellbeing for vulnerable adults; engagement and enrichment in primary education; and attainment and progression for Disabled children and young people.

We are an experienced team of artists, makers, musicians, performers and support staff. We are a passionate, ambitious and hardworking and are looking forward to welcoming a new member of our team at this exciting time.

We are looking for someone with a genuine passion and understanding of the role that arts and creativity can play in children and young people’s development.  You must be able to work collaboratively and enjoy leading and supporting others.  We want to work with someone who is friendly, approachable and inclusive.  You will be creative and innovative and be able to generate original ideas, manage and develop work that achieves specified outcomes and be able to communicate your vision to others.

We are delighted to offer this job on either a 4 or 5 a week post.  We understand how important it is to provide flexibility to suit people’s personal circumstances.
