The Essex County Council Cultural Strategic Fund has allocated a grant to the Festival to fund the Administrator role for 3 days per week for an initial 6 months contract. This contract will be extended and expanded subject to further funding applications and performance.
ThIs is an exciting opportunity to work in a fast moving and exciting environment. Applicants should have experience in: event and project management; fund raising; financial control; social media; website management; dealing with local and statutory authorities and organisations; contract management of artists and subcontractors.
