The British Council’s Architecture Design Fashion (ADF) department is seeking a Communications Manager. The successful candidate will work in collaboration with ADF and other teams within Arts to ensure the implementation of the Communications strategies of the department and a smooth running of its Communications platforms, including the website, blog, newsletter and our social media channels.
This is a permanent post on a part-time basis (2.5 days per week) based in London, and an excellent opportunity for an experienced Communications Manager to contribute to the strategic planning, initiation, development and management of communications for the ADF team.
The British Council was founded to create ‘a friendly knowledge and understanding’ between the people of the UK and wider world by making a positive contribution to the countries we work with, and in doing so making a lasting difference to the UK’s international standing, prosperity and security. The programmes we use to do this are wide-ranging and cover the arts, education, English, science and society.
Our UK Arts team works with the British Council’s global network of offices to achieve significant impact and change by finding new ways of connecting and seeing each other through the arts. Our team in the UK has three main groupings: we have six art form teams; three cross-disciplinary teams; and three country-specific teams in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Our aim is to see stronger creative sectors across the world that are better connected with the UK.
In the Architecture Design Fashion department we use our connections and understanding of the UK contemporary design sector to advise and support our international colleagues on working on design exhibitions, events, residencies and other projects within cultural relations programmes and provide a link to the UK. Together we develop projects to encourage showcasing, collaboration and professional exchange. We work in partnership with designers and design organisations to build relationships between the cultural, educational and professional institutions in the UK and around the world.
The closing date for applications is Tuesday 8 December 2015.
