Job Title: Project Co-ordinator: Commonword Community Archive Project

Contract: PART-TIME, PAYE 24 Month

Salary: £16,600 (NJC 31: pro rata of a full-time salary of £27,668)

Job Overview:

This new post will work alongside Commonword’s core team. The project, in identifying, recording and managing the heritage represented in our archive – as well as in explaining and interpreting the material – will enable public engagement with the archive and the heritage it represents. The aim is to encourage people to view this heritage as a living history available for them to draw upon, and which they can be a part of and contribute to.

This is an exciting new role that will enable the little known and poorly understood literary activist history of Manchester to impact the contemporary literary scene. We are therefore seeking to appoint a proactive and experienced development worker with a proven record of managing high quality projects that inspire and engage, and has experience of managing volunteers and freelance artists to deliver this.
