Project Director, East London Fashion Cluster (Stratford)
This is an exciting opportunity to play a leading role in the revival of fashion in East London.
For the last 18 months, London College of Fashion has been working with a number of partners to investigate how its move to Stratford could be a catalyst for amplifying the revival of fashion in East London. Despite considerable evidence of growth in the fashion sector in East London, there have been a number of structural barriers to growth and coordination failures. This is where you come in.
As Project Director, East London Fashion Cluster (Stratford), you will be pivotal to the strategic development of the Fashion City East programme, ensuring that it is aligned to the strategic aims, values and ethos of UAL and London College of Fashion. You will coordinate the programme of work streams that have been established to scope the positive interventions that might contribute to Fashion City East, and work with work stream leads to ensure that the work streams have been conceived and constituted appropriately and are likely to deliver to the timescales agreed.
A key aspect of the role will be to liaise with multiple stakeholders across UAL as well as externally with Government and Local Authorities, other relevant public bodies, industry partners and other key stakeholders. You will also be responsible for seeking the funding required to deliver this vision.
University of the Arts London is a vibrant world centre for innovation, drawing together six Colleges with international reputations in art, design, fashion, communication and performing arts.
London College of Fashion is extremely proud to be a global leader in fashion education, research and consultancy. Much of its success is down to its dedicated employees, and you will play an important role in shaping future creative professionals, and impact on the future of so many creative industries.
Significant sector experience in developing business engagement programmes in the fields of Fashion, Higher Education, Arts or the Government arena will be key to the role as will significant experience of developing and writing business plans and funding bids.
The successful candidate must also be able to demonstrate the ability to implement and support the delivery of high profile projects as exemplars to other Universities, and the fashion industry, that will ultimately influence new policies and procedures and champion organisational change.
There will be an Extended Selection Process.
