Vacancy: Assistant Curator

The Centre for Contemporary Arts (CCA) is looking for an experienced individual for the role of Assistant Curator. The post has been created as a response to CCA’s closure during the Summer of 2018, following the devastating fire in the neighbouring buildings of the Glasgow School of Art and the ABC music venue in June. During this time, many projects at CCA had to be postponed, reimagined or cancelled, causing much disruption to our staff and programme, as well as our many partners and stakeholders.

This new fixed-term post will be supported by a restricted fund for a period of one year to provide experience in the role of Assistant Curator, whilst supporting CCA and our partners with the delivery of rescheduled events and the production of the new programme throughout 2019.

The Assistant Curator will help support CCA’s public engagement programme, focusing on research and community relationships, but will additionally provide support to the exhibitions programme, residencies, archive and open source events.

We believe that diverse perspectives strengthen and enrich the arts. We are committed to helping to make the arts and cultural sector more inclusive and diverse. We welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons. We encourage those who identify as people of colour and/+ Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic, and disabled to apply.

We are happy to accept applications in alternative formats from applicants who, for reasons of disability, may find it difficult to fill in our standard form.

Contract terms:

12 month fixed term contract from February 2019

Salary: £20,000 - FT (35 hours)

Please see the job description for full details of the post.

Closing date for applications: Friday 4 January 2019 at 12 noon.

Interviews: Monday 14 January 2019
