WORK @ STRATHEARN ARTS

Strathearn Arts is a great place to work!

Following the strategic decision in 2019 to bring in an experienced professional team to manage and develop the charity, Strathearn Arts has grown rapidly with ever-more events and activities each year, a brand new box office and shop and an ambitious plan to develop the building and facilities still further. 

We have an enthusiastic and professional team working closely with a small army of volunteers and, together, we are passionate about developing the arts in our community. 

If you would like to join us, as an employee or a volunteer, please look at the vacancies available below and get in touch.

Job Description

Strathearn Arts’ Box Office, which was opened in May 2021, has quickly become the shop window for the organisation. In addition to selling tickets to our events and handling enquiries the Box Office also provides a retail showcase for over 25 local artists and craftspeople. At the same time, the organisation has grown and developed which has led to an increasing need for admin and clerical support.

We are therefore now looking to recruit an Admin and Retail Assistant, whose background and experience demonstrate a combination of strong customer service and retail capabilities with exceptional organisational skills and expertise with MS Office software tools.

 

The role is part-time with working hours from 10am – 4pm, 10 days per month (averaging 15hrs per week).
