An experienced Project Manager is required to lead a new creative industries support programme as part of Phoenix’s ambitious project to expand its venue in Leicester’s Cultural Quarter.
The project will create a new Creative Digital Incubator and other business support facilities at Phoenix Square. This work is underway and the Project Manager will develop and run the business support programme for new start and early stage creative businesses such as filmmakers, artists, and other creative digital content producers.
The project is funded by European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), Phoenix and other funders of the capital project to expand Phoenix Square:
The building phase is underway and will be completed by January 2023. The business support facilities will be available by 31 January 2022. The capital project is managed by an established team and Project Board.
The Project Manager will be responsible for developing and delivering the business support programme and managing the ERDF-funded revenue grant working in close collaboration with existing Phoenix managers.
The role will be a fixed term contract until 30 June 2023 and we are looking for a start date in October.
The role will be of interest to freelancers or companies who have the required availability and capabilities. We are also open to offering the role as a contract of employment.
The role is customer facing and requires weekday availability and presence although the hours required will vary during the contract. We envisage the role will require 0.8 FTE time commitment.
The budget for the Project Manager contract is circa £60k to 30 June 2023. The contract for services or employment contract will be offered on the basis of a competitive assessment of applications against the role criteria and value for money.
If fulfilled through a contract of employment, the starting salary would be circa £31k assuming a 0.8 FTE part-time contract of 30 hours per week.
Deadline for applications: Tuesday 28 September 2021
