We are currently recruiting for two opportunities, outlined below:

We're recruiting a Director of Inclusion

This is a rare opportunity to join Curious Minds at a senior level and we’re really excited about adding to our team. The right person will be a skilled, competent, knowledgeable and experienced professional who is passionate about arts, young people and inclusion. You’ll see this as a great opportunity to make a positive difference in the world. Waiting for you is a vibrant portfolio of existing projects, the opportunity to develop new work, a brilliant team and a very warm welcome.

We’re committed to diversity and we’re keen to employ someone who’ll add to the diversity of our team. We also want to be sure we’ve done a good job of letting a wide range of people know about this opportunity. We’ll try not to shortlist until we have a pool of applicants where at least 20% are from groups currently under-represented in the arts and culture sector. You can find information about who is under-represented here.

We're recruiting a Creative Evaluation Assistant

This role's purpose is to create a collection of resources and a creative output to support the sharing of learning from the Hope Streets project, in particular the Festival of Hope.

The successful candidate will work towards a number of outputs that support us as we approach the final year of the Hope Streets project; capturing the learning and activity from the project so far, and producing resources that help share this at conferences, training and events. In addition, we will expect them to approach this role using their creativity or creative practice. For example, as a writer, visual artist, film maker, photographer, a cross-discipline approach, or any other art form.

We are particularly interested in hearing from you if you are facing challenging circumstances at the moment. It could be that you are a young carer, have additional learning needs, or are from an underrepresented group in the arts. We recognise that challenging circumstances can take many different forms, so these are just suggestions, not a complete list. In your application, please tell us how and why you feel that you would benefit from this opportunity. All applications will be treated confidentially.

If you are interested, but uncertain as to whether you are eligible or not, then please contact for an informal chat about the placement.

Please note that this post is funded by Curious Minds as part of the Hope Streets project, supported by National Lottery Heritage Fund. As a result of funding restrictions, the post can only be offered to young people aged 18 – 25 years old.
