Are you an enthusiastic, passionate individual with experience in managing creative learning projects for schools, children, young people and adults? Do you value arts and creativity for all?

We are seeking an experienced, pro-active person with an innovative approach to creating programmes for schools, children, families and adults to join our creative learning and engagement team at Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery.  This role offers an exciting opportunity to deliver fresh new creative activities and learning opportunities within an innovative and growing arts organisation in Ealing, West London. Reporting to the Head of Public Programmes, the Learning & Engagement Manager will plan, coordinate and manage a strategic, coordinated programme of youth and adult support, listening and communicating effectively with staff teams and stakeholders to make it happen. As part of Pitzhanger’s close-knit team, you will manage new and existing year-round activities for young people, families and adults including inspirational activities for schools, education institutions and specified audiences through an engaging, exciting and innovative learning programme. 

Using your experience working with schools, children and young people you will grow the work of the organisation including networking to broaden the organisation’s reach, monitoring and reporting on the impact of your work, and making compelling cases to secure funding.

You will maintain and enhance the charity’s reputation for producing innovative, accessible programmes of the highest quality. Experience of management within the cultural/arts sector is desirable but not essential – we envisage the right candidate could also be someone from a charity, heritage, teaching or community sector background. Key to the role is experience, passion and aptitude for delivering great projects that improve people’s lives. Thriving in a bustling environment, you are a problem-solver and consummate communicator who will embrace an all-hands-on-deck approach with an entrepreneurial, collaborative and humorous spirit. 

Pitzhanger Manor is the Grade 1 listed ‘country’ house of architect Sir John Soane, designed and built by Soane 1800-1804 in what was then rural Ealing, West London.    Pitzhanger reopened to the public in March 2019 following a £12m National Lottery Heritage Fund (formerly the HLF) and ACE-supported building project to restore Soane’s original design and upgrade the adjacent Gallery so it can stage ambitious and challenging contemporary exhibitions.  These have included the inaugural exhibition by Anish Kapoor as well as subsequent exhibitions by artists including Anthony Caro, Rana Begum, Annie Morris and Idris Khan.  These exhibitions are supported by the learning and public programme mission to facilitate opportunities for creativity, participation and debate.
