Liverpool Biennial Programme Support Assistants (2 posts)
Salary: £18,297 PA
Hours: 37.5 per week (Monday – Friday)
Contract Type: Temporary, March – June 2021. Exact start date and dates of employment TBC.
Like so many other arts organisations across the world, Liverpool Biennial has been impacted by the pandemic and has had to reconfigure the exhibition to ensure that people are still able to engage with and experience the 11th edition, albeit in slightly different, but still inspiring, stimulating and, above all, safe ways.
They are now seeking to engage 2 temporary full-time Programme Support Assistants, to support the core Liverpool Biennial team on the delivery of the 2021 Biennial, focusing on how audiences go further in their engagement with the artworks within the ongoing pandemic situation and helping to reshape and trail new ways of presenting the programme and engaging audiences safely and remotely where necessary.
These posts have been designed to offer early career jobs to anyone interested in gaining new skills, knowledge and contacts to further their career in the arts. Liverpool Biennial is committed to investing in the skills and talent of those in the local visual arts scene.
The ideal Support Assistant is someone who is passionate about contemporary art, super organised, and who will enjoy working in a non-conventional, informal and fast paced environment, where no two days are the same. Remote working is available and expected for the majority of the role, and you will be provided with the necessary equipment to allow this. You may occasionally be asked to be present in person, either at Liverpool Biennial’s offices or at one of our venues in the city-centre. In this case, full training will be given in all necessary measures to keep you and our audiences safe, and you will be provided with the correct Personal Protective Equipment to enable you to work confidently and safely.
Closing date for receipt of applications is Monday 22 February 2021 and interviews are expected to be held on 3 March and 5 March. Interviews will most likely take place over Zoom.
Diversity and inclusion are core values at Liverpool Biennial. We welcome applications from all sectors of the community, including applications from people of colour, Black, Asian and minority ethnic groups, Indigenous people, people with disabilities, people who identify as being LGBTQIA+ and others who demonstrate the ability to contribute to our vision of a diverse and inclusive community.
