Arts Council are looking to recruit an outstanding individual to fulfil two significant roles within the Arts Council – to be their national director of Literature, and also play a key part of the South West leadership team.

As key part of both the Area and Art form senior teams you must be able to demonstrate your ability to manage the complex and multiple demands of this role.

You will also have lead responsibility for developing and delivering, via excellent matrix working, the strategic plan for a defined art-form (currently Literature). This will necessitate using your power to convene expertise and knowledge, both internally and externally, to develop to maintain and share a national overview and future strategy of this area of work, both within the UK and internationally, and inform Executive Board and National Council in determining future direction.

You will promote and embed the Literature strategic agenda in all aspects ofthe business and work closely with the Investment team to create and implement funding programmes that support the delivery of Arts Councils' goals.

In playing a key leadership role in the South West team, you will combine specialist knowledge and expertise with a flexibility and curiosity to work beyond your specialism, drawing on the expertise of colleagues as needed and contributing to areas outside of specialism within the national policy work. This will involve extensive travel through the Area and more widely, attending work and giving talks in support of the whole portfolio and all South West priorities.
