Before you apply

Watershed’s first value is Inclusive – we are people led. We listen to and engage with the broadest range of people. The information below lays out some of the steps we are taking to create a more inclusive recruitment process. Many of these steps are new to us, so feedback and questions are very welcome.

You may not have worked in a cultural organisation before, or in an organisation like Watershed. Perhaps you have worked in a commercial, education or charitable setting – all of which are very transferable contexts.

If you are from a background that is underrepresented in the culture sector (for example you are from a community that experiences racism or you are a disabled person (as defined by the Equalities Act 2010), or you did not go to University or had free school meals as a child), and you would like support to articulate how your experience is transferable to this role, you can book time with us (we will ensure the person you meet is not involved in the recruitment process).

We would be pleased to help you think this through. Please request this by emailing (we will not ask you to disclose your background).

We believe our work will be stronger with greater diversity and welcome applications from those who bring balance to our team. Watershed welcomes the whole person to work, and we understand that each of us brings our experiences, our backgrounds and our own unique lens to what we do. Supporting our staff means they are not appointed to represent specific groups or organisations.

The closing date for this position is 31/03/2022 at 17:00
