About Croydon

Croydon hasn’t seen expansion like we are currently experiencing since the 1960s. We’re already well underway with some £5bn of investment that will be completed over the next few years. New offices, new retail, and new homes will provide well-paid jobs and high-quality accommodation for our rapidly growing population.

Croydon is a naturally ambitious council – so we’re looking for inspirational leaders who share our passion for supporting business growth and responding to local needs.
Strong partnerships are the foundation for the future. That’s why we’re constantly looking forward. We need to find creative new ways of working together with other agencies and the private sector to deal with the financial challenges ahead.
Because with growth comes increased demand – but also huge opportunity.
Chances like this only come along once in a generation, and our task, and maybe yours, is to shape a positive future for Croydon’s residents and businesses alike.

About the Role

Working closely with colleagues in the children’s services and culture teams, this post will have a lead role in:


- ensuring the voice of children and young people is placed at the heart of the development of quality music and arts activity so that it meets their needs and aspirations


- the development of theatre arts performance programmes following Croydon’s success in securing £1,000,000 from the Arts Council’s Youth Performance Partnership Fund


- the development of arts programmes for children and young people facing disadvantage so that the benefits of the arts are gained by those that need it most


If you can help us give Croydon’s children and young people a voice through the arts, we would like to hear from you.


Shortlisted candidates will be invited to attend Croydon’s Cultural Education Partnership meeting at 4.30pm on Thursday 9 May.


Interviews:  13 May 2019
