Before you apply

You may not have worked in a cultural organisation before, or in an organisation like Watershed. Perhaps you have worked in finance but in other non-cultural organisations which would be a very transferable context. 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 in 2010,) or you did not go to University or you had free school meals as a child), and you would like support to articulate how your experience is transferable to this role, please contact Clare Reddington clare.r@watershed.co.uk or Kirsty Young kirsty.y@watershed.co.uk and we would be pleased to help you think this through.

We believe our work will be stronger with greater diversity and welcome applications from those who bring difference to our team. Watershed welcomes the whole person to work, and we understand that each of us bring 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.
