Hours: 14 hours per week (2 days per week)

About the role

The successful candidate will join Generator to lead on one of our most exciting, complex and impactful programmes to date.

Working with leading educational partners in the region, the role will be a key pillar in the planning, organisation and delivery of a comprehensive Skills for Growth programme, which encapsulates brand new vocational accredited qualifications delivered in conjunction with local FE & HE institutions and industry leaders.

From helping to design vocational skills modules for the live entertainment industry, to setting up and lead a technical steering group for the live sector qualification, the role will play a key part in establishing this ground breaking programme as the ultimate training programme for the live sector.

Working alongside partner venues and industry leaders, you’ll help to plan, organise and deliver real world training opportunities that are truly embedded in the industry, building on your own list of contacts and experience within the sector to ensure learners are fully immersed in the industry and able to gain skills that are in highly demand across the region.

The role will support learners and organisational partners in the organisation and delivery of the programme’s pastoral and educational output, ensuring wellbeing and safeguarding protocols are at the heart of everything you do.

The role will be the glue that holds the many strands that feed into the programme together, acting as the lead coordinator and point of contact for participants, partners and funders.

The role will engage with Generator’s busy marketing department to ensure the successes and benefits of the programme are regularly communicated to our audiences, supporting the recruitment work undertaken by the educational partners to ensure the programme is well subscribed and delivering outputs.

The successful candidate will take a lead role in the reporting and reviewing of the programme’s progress and outcomes.

About You

You will be an experienced administrative professional, ideally within the education sector. If you have a grounding in the performing arts sector too, even better.

Impeccably organised and with an understanding of the vocational educational space, you will have experience in the development and delivery of vocational qualifications and a passion for developing future talent.

You’ll be an excellent communicator, who knows how to engage participants and partners alike, building relationships across the sector.

You have an understanding of the live entertainment and performing arts sector and how it operates, the skills required and the skills gaps present in the area.

You will be a diligent safeguarding, wellbeing and access champion, with a passion for ensuring access to opportunity for all.

You’ll need to be able to undertake some occasional travel, overnight stays and have a flexible approach to working hours and location, as well as a willingness to attend events and occasions outside of normal office hours.
