You will manage the overall delivery of the COP26 project, with particular responsibility for strategic partnerships and the public campaign. To do this, you will work closely with CSM’s Creative Producer: College Culture and Community; the UAL Climate Emergency Action Group; the Climate Emergency Network; the University Associate Director of Estates (Sustainability) and CSM’s Head of College, in his role as University Lead on Climate Emergency.

This post will require flexible working including evening and weekends as required, particularly as we approach the COP summit in November 2021.

In 2019 the University committed strongly to taking action around climate change. Through various actions and events at college and University level, momentum is building in this area. As COP26 approaches, we are keen to seize the opportunity to reinforce the importance of the arts, creative education, research and knowledge exchange in the conversation. We aim to do this by a) taking a leadership role in an advocacy campaign bringing together a consortium of national and international culture & education institutions, to coincide with COP and b) delivering a programme of events to create both an evidence-base for this campaign and a world-leading ‘creative climate summit’. This aspect will be delivered in partnership with Glasgow School of Art and others tbc.

With a relevant qualification, ideally in the arts, humanities and/or arts management the successful candidate will possess the knowledge, interest and experience of contemporary visual arts and/or design practice in the UK and internationally. You will have a knowledge and interest in climate and ecological emergency discourse and its bearing on the creative and education sectors, as well as an understanding and knowledge of governmental and intergovernmental, environmental and development policy, including the Paris Accord and the UN SDGs.

Able to work collaboratively and communicate effectively, you will be used to writing persuasive, compelling content and will have experience of working on cultural, environmental, and/ or educational campaigns, leading and collaborating on the development of partnership proposals. As an experienced project manager, you are used to delivering a range of projects within the creative, higher education or public sector with minimal supervision and within budget, working with multiple stakeholders and with competing agendas and priorities.

In return, University of the Arts London offers generous leave, an attractive pension and a commitment to your continuing personal development and training in an environment that encourages excellence, creativity and diversity.
