As New Writing North enters its 21st year of operation, we’re full of energy and ideas for the future. We’re a small organisation with a dedicated, creative team, based in Newcastle upon Tyne and working to support writers and literature across the North of England.
An organisation is only as strong as its people, and we look after our staff with training, flexible working and a contributory pension scheme. You’ll be given responsibility and encouraged to develop your skills from day one. We’re an open and friendly bunch and we think New Writing North is a great place to work.
2017 marks a period of growth for the organisation, with new business and projects. We’re now looking for five new staff members to help us make the most of the current opportunities and support our work into the future. We are also looking to appoint new board trustees with specific skills and expertise.
Encouraging diversity in our governance and workforce
We are an Equal Opportunities employer and are committed to developing the profile of our staff and board so that they better reflect the communities in which we work. People from BAME and low socio-economic backgrounds are currently underrepresented in our governance and workforce and we would like to encourage potential candidates from those backgrounds.
