Seeking our new WEdesign Programme Manager.

We are recruiting a new member of The Glass-House team to be our WEdesign Programme Manager.

This post creates a new strategic role at The Glass-House, combining innovative thinking and partnership working with the nuts and bolts of designing and delivering a national programme of events and associated activities. Thinking outside traditional boxes, our WEdesign Programme Manager will work with The Glass-House team and partners to create interactive and innovative spaces for connection, learning and co-design within this established yet evolving programme.

Our new WEdesign Programme Manager will be someone with creative flair, able to work collaboratively across sectors and disciplines and with people from diverse communities. Passionate about the power of great design to transform places and build social capital, they will play a key role in our work to champion and enable community-led, participatory and collaborative design and cross-sector collaboration in placemaking.
