Fixed Term post/Secondment Opportunity until 1st December 2024 - Full Time
Create Enfield is a new initiative to support Enfield’s creative sector and develop a ground-breaking borough-wide programme of creative interventions in the public realm.
We’re looking for someone who shares our belief that public art makes a difference to places – to people’s wellbeing, safety and pride. You’ll have experience of delivering public art projects and be keen to engage local communities in the process, support the creation of projects that relate clearly to their locale and to ensure that the local creative sector grows as a result through opportunity, training and connections to young people. You’ll be a great relationship manager, able to work with a wide range of council teams and their objectives, artists, our residents and council leadership, and an experienced project manager able to plan, administer and deliver. And you’ll bring an understanding of the strategic support landscape for culture and creativity, including skills training and funding opportunities.
This is a new role for a new project that sits at the heart of our new Culture Strategy, Culture Connects. https://governance.enfield.gov.uk/documents/s84477/finalEnfieldCS_Draft_L.pdf
Based in the Culture service, you’ll also be working closely with our town centre, planning, regeneration, youth and health teams.

Fixed Term post/Secondment Opportunity
An external candidate, including Enfield Council agency workers, would be appointed on a fixed term contract, whilst internal candidates who are Council employees, would normally be expected to take up the post on a secondment basis.
To be eligible to apply for a secondment, Enfield Council employees must have completed probation and must have discussed/agreed the proposed secondment with their line manager. Fixed term contracts may be considered where secondment is not possible.
Secondments are the temporary loan of an employee from one part of the organisation to another part of the organisation and rely on the secondee to return to their substantive position on completion of the secondment.
