A fascinating, broad-ranging role with a globally recognised leader in arts education.

Full time / Monday – Friday / 34.5 hours per week

£22,000 - £24,500 per annum


As one of two Continuing Professional Development officers, you will report to the CPD Operations Manager and work closely with the Lead CPD Officer.
