Arts. Kindness. Social Change.

Whatever the setting, art form, theme or audience, our work celebrates the positive in people and places, and is designed to bring different kinds of people together. We are a small team with a national and international impact. We run projects and events, commission artists to make new work, carry out rigorous research, support others in making a positive difference in their own settings, and contribute to policy at local and national level to help understand and evaluate the social impact of the arts.

In order to make sure we continue growing sustainably and imaginatively, we have created a new role of Head of Development to become our first dedicated fundraiser and to support our Chief Executive in their strategic development work.

This is an exciting new post, requiring someone with experience in raising significant levels of funds alongside engaging communication skills and a team-minded way of working. It is important that the person joining People United shares our ethics and values, is committed to equality and diversity, and can work effectively within a small team.
