Young at Art are recruiting a Development Assistant – closing 15 Aug

Young at Art is excited to be able to offer this new role within our organisation and be able to provide a funded, three-year personalised training and development programme to the successful candidate.

Young at Art, Northern Ireland’s leading children’s arts organisation and producer of the annual Belfast Children’s Festival, wish to find a Development Assistant to fill a vital support role within our team.

Our new Development Assistant will learn and use a range of skills that generate income in the arts and gain valuable experience in events/project management as a key member of the team delivering our showcase annual international festival.

Over the next three years, you will work on grant applications and reporting, sponsorship and partnership development, and audience development initiatives. As well as supporting and learning from YAA senior managers, we will secure one-to-one mentoring with sector-leading professionals and devise with you a personalised training programme depending on your needs.

This post is a entry-level offering and will be a full-time post for 3 years. It has been previously advertised and we are unlikely to consider previous applicants.

Funding for this contract is from the Art Work Covid Recovery programme, an Employment and Skills initiative for the Arts Sector in Northern Ireland, supported by the Department for Communities.
