Assistant Project Manager role with Ginkgo Projects – Deadline 21st March

Ginkgo Projects are looking for an Assistant Project Manager to work on delivering a large public commission in Amesbury/Stonehenge.  They would also be involved in delivering some other projects at Ginkgo.

This would be approximately one day a week for about a year (overall fee of £7200) on a freelance basis with quite a flexible approach to fit in with the ebb and flow of this project.  The Amesbury/Stonehenge project should be complete by late spring 2019.

This would ideally suit someone with some project management experience although this is not essential if they bring enthusiasm and a common sense approach!  This might be someone with their own practice, part time employment or study that they could fit this round. It will involve working with artists and communities, so someone who enjoys working with people would be good.

This is not an artist role and would involve desk based work, meetings and some travel to oversee project delivery where necessary.  Access to a car would be ideal.  It is important that this person is self-reliant and can work independently as well as in a team.  Some time may be spent working from home, some in the Ginkgo office and some on site as appropriate.

Deadline: 21 March / Person appointed by 4th April  Application by letter of interest and CV.
