Grand Junction at St Mary Magdalene’s  is a partnership between Paddington Development Trust and St Mary Magdalene Church, which has seen the restoration of the Grade 1 listed building, an outstanding example of neo-Gothic architecture. A new modern building has been added alongside, with a café, learning space, and wheelchair access to all levels. When we re-open in summer 2019 we will be a bustling hub of activities and events for families, young people, and the community, as well as continuing to be a place of worship. We have ambitious plans over the next few years for both our community and arts programme, which will welcome people of all faiths and none.

This will be an exciting time to join the team as we embed a programme of activities and events into the new venue. Reporting to the Community Heritage Programme Manager, you will be responsible for the delivery of our programme for young people, schools and families.

We are seeking an experienced and dynamic person, ideally from an arts or museums background, who is confident in both project management as well as facilitation of projects for young people, schools and family audiences. In the role you will develop a programme of inspiring arts-based activities which respond to the historic building and the heritage of the local area. You will have a passion for working with young people, particularly those who face barriers in terms of their personal, social and economic progression.

You will be highly organised, capable of working independently and within a team, as well as being able to communicate with a wide range of people. You will also be able to facilitate lively and inspiring workshops for young people.

This role is funded by John Lyon’s Charity and National Lottery Heritage Fund.
