In 2009, the Barbican and Guildhall School joined forces to launch Barbican Guildhall Creative Learning, a creative alliance pioneering new models for creative and cultural learning across the art forms. Our mission, Creative Skills for Life, underpins all aspects of our work and approach in the design and delivery of meaningful and impactful learning experiences across three strategic pillars: Education, Employability and Enrichment.
Every year, we deliver more than 40 programmes and events alongside 150 partners to over 22,00 participants. In order to achieve this, we build partnerships with teachers, artists, young people, schools and community organisations locally, nationally and internationally.
As an organisation we have an under-representation of Black, Asian and ethnically diverse people in senior roles so we particularly welcome candidates who identify as such. Candidates should have excellent communication skills, significant experience of managing and leading a large team. You should also possess interpersonal skills of the highest calibre and be able to use your own initiative in getting things going. You should have proven track record of working with a range of art forms in the delivery of large-scale educational events and an ability to create and facilitate innovative, collaborative projects in response to both the Barbican Arts Programme and the Creative Learning strategic vision
