has the creativity and imagination to find and implement pragmatic solutions

has the confidence, credibility and personality to help build and maintain partnerships and work collaboratively

The opportunity is exciting because Gloucester is heading towards the final year of a 3-year ACE/HLF/HE Great Place programme delivering real cultural change in the City, including the creation of a new cultural entrepreneurs’ hub in the City centre.  A recent Venues Feasibility Plan lays the groundwork for what we must do to develop audiences, build partnerships and relationships, utilise meanwhile spaces across the city and engage more with young people.  We have a strong partnership with the Roundhouse, Camden to develop talent in Gloucester and support existing arts organisations including the Gloucester Guildhall.  And we are serious about bidding for City of Culture in 2025.

The opportunity is challenging because there is so much to do.  Your first job will be to identify the priorities and work to a deliverable plan.  Unlike many places, Gloucester is investing in Culture and we have the active support of major funders like ACE and HLF, but money is always tight so fundraising, income generation and budget management will be features of your role.  We are also transferring our former Museum of Gloucester Life buildings to the Gloucester Historic Buildings Trust and the Gloucester Civic Trust to enable the creation of a new Heritage Hub in the City.

Because we need to be flexible in our response to these opportunities, we are seeking to recruit an interim Head of Service for a 12-month period.  The successful candidate will manage teams at Gloucester Guildhall, Blackfriars and the Museum of Gloucester as well as our decant from the Museum of Gloucester Life.  You will work closely with the Gloucester Culture Trust on the delivery of the Great Place Programme and the City’s Cultural Vision and Strategy.  You’ll develop, maintain and enhance our relationships with the Roundhouse, Marketing Gloucester Ltd, Great Place partners, cultural organisations, funders and the people of Gloucester.

We know that we are asking a great deal.  We also believe that this is a unique opportunity to influence and deliver the City’s cultural ambitions.  To make sure we get the right person for the role we are happy to be flexible in considering secondments, interim appointments, job sharing and anything else that would help you bring your talents to Gloucester.
