Salary: £28,672 –  £28,672  pro rata Plus laptop & phone

Fusion, Barnsley’s Local Cultural Education Partnership (LCEP), is about to embark on an ambitious programme (up to December 2023) to elevate the partnership to a new level by providing capacity to drive the delivery of strategy that strengthens and embeds links with the borough’s education sector and realises our goal of firmly embedding youth voice at the heart of the partnership.

This role will add capacity to the existing Fusion Co-ordinator to develop strategy and infrastructure to build on successes (Creative Exchange and Fusion Network Events) achieved so far and facilitate new ways of working that make the partnership even more resilient. 

The role also presents an exciting opportunity to be at the centre of a partnership with youth voice at its core. The Spector Specialist Officer will develop and lead on plans that enable children and young people (CYP) to play an active role in Fusion’s strategy.

The role will facilitate CYP to develop a strong, clear voice in the strategic development of the arts and cultural offer in Barnsley and work to unite organisations working with CYP across the borough. This will encourage greater collaboration that leads to increased access to high quality arts, heritage, cultural and creative education and experiences that bring positive change for those aged 0-25 years.
