Salary: £30,000 – £35,000, 35 hours per week

Location: Magic Me’s office is in Bethnal Green, E2, east London.
We are open to hybrid working: at the office and elsewhere and will agree a pattern of work with the successful candidate.

Deadline: Tuesday 2 May, 12noon 

Magic Me is the UK’s leading provider of intergenerational arts activities and a pioneer in creative arts with care home residents, with a 30+ year track record. Our arts projects challenge young and older people to stretch themselves and what they think they can do and be. Participants learn new skills, share their ideas and feelings, and become comfortable collaborating with people who are different in age, ethnicity or life experience.

Magic Me has been awarded 3 years of public funding by Arts Council England, as we become one of their National Portfolio Organisations.  From April 2023, this funding will support our ambitious programme of new work alongside growing our existing projects. We are looking for a Project Manager to join us on this journey.   Arts have a vital role to play in post-pandemic community building and this is a crucial and exciting time in Magic Me’s development. 

The Role

We are looking for an experienced Project Manager, with a strong connection to Tower Hamlets and the communities who live here. This job would be ideal for someone who enjoys building relationships with people and partners across a range of sectors and experiences, and a passion for co-designing and delivering community projects that make a difference to individuals and communities. 

Join us and play a key role in developing new strands of work with the Tower Hamlets community, leading to a local programme of intergenerational projects that offer fresh approaches and respond to the needs of the communities that live in our home borough. 

“It is because of people like you that communities are stronger and people are more confident and less lonely. Thank you.” – Magic Me Participant 

Are you able to?:

  • Build and maintain trusting relationships with project partners (e.g. schools, community /arts organisations, older people services, care homes) and participants? 
  • Work collaboratively with partners, artists and participants to co-design innovative community arts projects?
