Funding and Partnerships Manager (full-time)

Closing date 29 July 2022

Wasps is seeking a friendly, organised, and motivated Funding and Partnerships Manager to work with the team to engage with supporters, creative tenants and communities across Scotland to help Wasps deliver its core aims as a Charity and Social Enterprise – the creation of affordable studios and creative workspace, and opportunities for artists and creative industries across Scotland.

Wasps has been supporting the arts community for over four decades and has grown to become one of the UK’s largest studio providers. Thanks to significant funds from public sector, private Trusts and Foundations and individuals, Wasps has just completed the £6m redevelopment of the Midmills Buildings in Inverness to create the Highlands’ first major creative hub.

This year, the organisation is embarking on the second phase of works at our Head Office and largest Glasgow building, the beautiful A-listed Briggait. This £5m project will bring 1,200sqm of market hall space – currently vacant – back into use as an inspirational creative hub and Market Hall destination on the River Clyde. Having already secured £1.6m from the Scottish Government, later this year will see Wasps embark on an exciting process of capital development, community and supporter engagement, and relationship building to breathe new life into this iconic Glasgow landmark.

Please see the Job Description and Person Specification for more detail on the responsibilities and requirements of this varied, challenging and creative funding and partnerships role.
