Engagement Programme Assistant

The first Yorkshire Sculpture International takes place from June to September 2019 in venues across Leeds and Wakefield. Free and open to all, Yorkshire Sculpture International is produced by a unique consortium comprising the Henry Moore Institute, Leeds Art Gallery, The Hepworth Wakefield and Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

Yorkshire Sculpture International will feature work by international artists staged across the four venues and major new outdoor sculpture commissions across public spaces in Leeds and Wakefield, inviting visitors to interact with art in unexpected places in the cities.

We are recruiting a Engagement Programme Assistant to join our small team and help to deliver next year’s festival, see below for full details.

Yorkshire Sculpture International is committed to equality of opportunity for all staff and to building a diverse workforce.

We are looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic Engagement Programme Assistant to support the development and delivery of our engagement programme with schools, teachers, community groups, universities and artists.

This is an entry level role and no prior experience working in the arts is required. We are looking for someone with transferrable skills who enjoys working with people and has an enthusiasm for the arts, in particular sculpture.
