We’re seeking a brilliant person to lead the next chapter of our learning and participation work, as we establish the Quentin Blake Centre for Illustration.

Reporting to the Director, the new Head of Learning and Participation will be the inspiring leader of a small staff team and freelancer pool, and a tenacious advocate for illustration and heritage. You’ll bring imagination and practical experience, not only to the development of our programmes, but to the design of a new education studio, galleries and public gardens within amazing heritage buildings.

We’re interested in hearing from experienced arts education professionals who can hit the ground running. We’re flexible about what that looks like and are happy to hear from full-timers, part-timers and job-shares. We champion art that is dynamic, diverse and inclusive; we want our team to reflect that.
