Creative Change Maker Vacancy – Climate Action (Freelance) – Aberdeen Performing Arts

We are seeking a creative individual, a natural influencer, possibly a grass roots activist or artist, someone who is a champion for enabling the positive change needed to address the critical situation we find ourselves in as a result of the climate emergency. The Creative Change Maker – Climate Action is a new freelance role based within our Creative Engagement Team, and will work with us to identify areas we can improve and develop our commitment to climate action through:

  • working with artists, arts and cultural organisations, local communities and regional and national partners to support sustainability and build resilience
  • exploring how we can use the arts to continue to be a more environmentally conscious organisation, minimising our impact on the environment from our buildings to our productions and operations.

About You

You’ll be a creative, confident individual, with experience of creating, developing and delivering climate challenge initiatives that support communities to take ownership of issues around the climate emergency.  You’ll have experience of working in an organisation, reviewing and implementing climate policies and strategies. You’ll be comfortable communicating with and influencing people from all walks of lives, happy working in settings from board room to youth group and everything in between.  You’ll be emotionally intelligent, bringing people on board in a positive way.

Our three iconic city centre venues are all on a national and international touring circuit for the performing arts and a vital part of Aberdeen and Scotland’s cultural ecology.
