Communications Assistant
Employer: Create
Salary: £19,201 - £21,000 pa (dependent on experience) + annual 7.5% loyalty scheme (terms & conditions apply)
Location: London

Create is seeking an outstanding candidate with a passion for the arts, digital marketing and arts education for the role of Communications Assistant. The position would suit someone ambitious with communications skills and experience, who is interested in third sector communications and is keen to develop their experience in promoting the arts. The Communications Assistant reports to the Head of Communications who is responsible for Create’s PR/communications strategy and implementation. The Communications Assistant will provide administrative support to the Communications team. An enthusiasm for communicating Create’s cause and excellent written, visual and verbal communication skills are essential. All Create personnel are required to have a Disclosure and Barring Service check, which Create will carry out upon appointment.

Create uses the power of the creative arts to empower the lives of society’s most disadvantaged and vulnerable people by enabling them to develop creativity, learning, social skills and self-esteem. It believes that everyone – regardless of circumstances, behaviour, age, gender, race or disability – deserves the chance to fulfil their potential. Its particular focus is on engaging the most marginalised participants in inspiring, sustainable arts programmes – delivered in familiar settings where they feel comfortable and safe – in areas where provision is poor and engagement in the arts is therefore low. Most projects are collaborations with community partners, which have specialist knowledge of local priorities and the participants that they exist to serve. Create’s work focuses on seven priority groups: young patients; disabled children and adults; young and adult carers; schoolchildren (and their teachers) in areas of deprivation; vulnerable older people; young and adult offenders (and their families); and marginalised children and adults. www.createarts.org.uk.
