In addition to supporting the employer in their role as AD, you will also assist them with their own creative practice and attend appointments and networking events with them. The position is funded by JobCentre Plus and the organisation, together with a personal contribution.

The successful applicant will be a well-organised, flexible multi-tasker with good listening, IT and admin skills and will be confident to drive on motorways and in central London. A full clean driving licence* and fluent written and spoken English are essential; previous experience in the creative and cultural industries will be an advantage. *Applicants must be over 25 with a minimum of two years’ driving experience to meet insurance regulations.

You will be comfortable in diverse environments working alongside people from a wide range of backgrounds, and have an Enhanced DBS certificate or be prepared to apply for one. The employer uses a wheelchair and has an assistance dog and cats, so you will need to be in good health yourself and comfortable with animals.

Payment is £15 an hour for self-employed contractors; payment is weekly by invoice.
