Hours: 35 Hours per week (Perm)
Salary: £22,684 – £24,783

We are looking for a creative, dynamic Arts Project Producer with a Music specialism to work within our Arts Team, delivering Paisley’s 2021 Legacy Programme and developing innovative projects that drive transformation across Renfrewshire’s communities. As well as developing your own projects and initiatives, this post will support co-production with a range of community groups, musicians and music organisations.

Renfrewshire remains committed to regeneration through culture. With a £100 million investment in Paisley and Renfrewshire’s cultural infrastructure, there has rarely been a better opportunity to join an arts team anywhere in Scotland. The £4.2 million Arts Legacy Programme will support the Arts Team to deliver a range of innovative, multi-disciplinary projects building new audiences, fostering cultural participation and placing Renfrewshire on the cultural map.

You will support the creative ambitions of artists and arts organisations and use your project management skills to deliver high quality, high profile projects, events and programmes. Communication and organisational skills are essential, as well as a deep sensitivity to the needs of artists and arts professionals. While you will work primarily within your specialism, you will be expected to take a portfolio approach which may include a specific community or theme, such as well-being or education. Additional experience in these areas will be welcome.

The Arts Team is composed of Project Producers, Programmers, Outreach Workers and Development officers working with a host of local and national partners and co-producers. Working to your own initiative and being brilliant team player will be essential in the role.

Your work will make a direct and tangible contribution to the regeneration of Paisley, raising its profile as a centre for cultural excellence and building strength in its communities.
