Are you a freelancer or employee working with a literature/languages organisation in Scotland with the ambition and energy to lead?
Apply to Round 2 of Next Level for 1:1 online mentoring, training & networking opportunities tailored to your career goals.
The Next Level Programme is a pilot career development programme that aims to equip two mid-career arts professionals on the path to a senior position with the intended outcome of increasing diversity within our sector.
It’s designed for a mid-career arts professional who’s either employed by or works as a freelancer for an organisation in Scotland’s literature & languages sector.
This second round is for one person and includes up to 80 contact hours (10 days), delivered digitally due to Covid-19, over three months from November 2020.
We particularly welcome applications from those who self-identify as a Person of Colour (POC), working-class and/or disabled and their intersections.
- 4 x 60-minute, one-to-one online mentoring sessions with an industry professional working in, for example, publishing, bookselling, programming, libraries
- Training in presentation skills and how to make an impact (delivered virtually)
- Conversations with industry professionals (via telephone/video call).
We’ll cover the costs of:
- A living wage stipend can be available where the successful applicant would not be paid for their time participating in the programme.
We consider mid-career to be someone with 4 to 6 years’ experience of working in the sector and who would not define themselves as working at senior management level.
How to apply:
Download our application pack from the website and email the completed application form and nomination form to Jenny Kumar on email@example.com with a short covering letter by the deadline.
