A great organisation in which to share your skills and creativity

New Writing North is 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 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.

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 under-represented in our governance and workforce and we would like to encourage potential candidates from those backgrounds.

Programme Manager (Participation and Young People)

We are recruiting a creative and organised self-starter to manage and deliver ambitious projects and initiatives which engage people in our work, including through the innovative use of digital technology.

The projects and initiatives will create the best conditions for people, especially young people, to express themselves creatively, to fulfill their artistic potential, to support their ongoing creative development and to engage with our work.


Apply online by submitting a CV and covering letter.

The deadline for applications is 9am, Friday 1 September 2017. Interviews will take place on 15 September 2017.
