We are seeking a full time Project Manager to manage the 24-month Talent Accelerator programme. The Project Manager will review and rescope a programme of work originally written in 2020,  producing a revised delivery framework with the funders and stakeholders for delivery in line with the new academic year in September 2022. The Project Manager will then lead and deliver the programme, co-ordinating and joining up multiple workstreams to deliver a holistic approach, making sure all objectives and outcomes are met.

Talent Accelerator is a new programme which aims to get young people across East Sussex interested in and working within the Creative Industries. It seeks to create a joined-up infrastructure between industry and education and a unique framework to enable education settings and creative industry employers to co-design new learning and real-world skills programmes. It will offer particular support to those from areas of high deprivation, rurally-isolated locations and under-represented backgrounds to make sure everyone across the region is reaching their potential and has access to the same opportunities

The programme will help our young people:

  • understand the different types of companies and organisations in the creative, cultural and digital sectors and the range of roles and opportunities on offer.
  • increase their creativity, identify the skills needed for those roles and support them to develop and add to their own skillset.
  • give them valuable experience working alongside creative people in vibrant and exciting places and spaces
  • prepare them take advantage of the growing creative, cultural, and digital employment opportunities East Sussex has to offer – or even create their own.
