We are currently recruiting for a Creative Support Coordinator.
We are looking for a Creative Support Coordinator to join our team at Bridge Creative to support our core projects and services. The role will involve working primarily on our Keeping People Connected service, supporting adults with learning disabilities and autism to keep safe, well and connected during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Our Keeping People Connected service offers regular ongoing support to help people keep up to date with and understand the latest government guidance and offers a friendly voice to talk to about any worries people may have or if people simply want to chat. The service supports people by phone, email, text and social media and provides activity packs for people to do at home, as well as supporting people to access our closed Facebook group, offering a safe place for people to socialise and make friends online, including posting relevant content and facilitating group video calls.
The Creative Support Coordinator will support our other projects including Keeping People Creative, Keeping People Active and work closely with our small team. Over the coming months we aim to resume our Creative Placements project, supporting young adults with learning disabilities and autism in training, work experience and employment opportunities in the events, arts and creative industries. The post holder will understand the barriers to employment young people with learning disabilities face and support people to build confidence, learn new skills and prepare for work.
The role will consist of some working from home and some work from venues in Bishop Auckland. The successful candidate will need to be able to travel to Bishop Auckland.
