Watershed will work with candidates to ensure their access needs are met during the interview process and will ensure access requirements do not factor in decision making.
The current Watershed team is majority white, cisgender and non-disabled. We believe our work will be stronger with greater diversity and welcome applications from those who bring difference. Watershed welcomes the whole person to work, and we understand that each of us bring our experiences, our backgrounds and our own unique lens to what we do. Supporting our staff means they are not appointed to represent specific groups or organisations.
You may not have worked in a cultural organisation before, or in an organisation like Watershed. Perhaps you have worked for another type of network in another sector such as community development, music or theatre – these are all potentially very transferable contexts.
If you are from a background that is underrepresented in the culture sector (for example you are from a community that experiences racism, you did not go to University, you had free school meals as a child or you are a disabled person (as defined by the Equality Act 2010), and you would like support to articulate how your experience is transferable to this role, you can book time with one of our team. We will ensure the person you meet is not involved in the recruitment process. They would be pleased to help you think this through. Please request this by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org (we will not ask you to disclose your background).
We also guarantee an initial chat for anyone who identifies as one or more of the above and fulfils the minimum criteria for the role. If you would like this to be a consideration in your application, please indicate this in your statement in support of your application.
Closing Date: Thursday, 7 January 2021 – 17:00
