CAN is seeking to recruit the following position: Creative Producer – Children & Young People

CAN is seeking a new Creative Producer to head up our work with children and young people.

The role of Creative Producer – Children & Young People is a new position at CAN and a key post reflecting the significant focus that we put on our growing portfolio of work with children and young people.

As such, we are looking for someone who is dynamic, who will bring considerable experience, energy and passion to the role and who shares CAN’s values and ethos. We need someone who will help us develop and expand our cultural offer, successfully engaging and supporting positive progression in the lives of working-class young people from all communities.

You need to be passionate about the power of creativity to transform lives and feel excited at what is possible and can be achieved.

The main focus will be the delivery of CAN’s Children In Need (CIN) funded Children & Young People’s Performing Arts programmes in both Manchester and Wigan. Both programmes have been delivering high quality personal, social and artistic outcomes with young people from a wide range of diverse backgrounds over five years.

You will be managing two regular performance-based mixed media workshop and production programmes per year, over the three years, plus complementary cultural offers and Arts Award.

One day per week will be dedicated to programme development and fundraising, as well as partnership development and strategic working.

The right candidate will be an experienced Young People’s Arts Practitioner with speciality in the creation of live combined-media performance-based theatre, with an understanding of how wider art forms can broaden and enrich the activity on offer. You will have a sound understanding of good practice in delivering arts-based programmes with children and young people.

CAN is dedicated to building a diverse and equitable environment and strongly encourages applications from diverse communities.
