Creative Learning Manager – The MAC

The MAC wants to play a leading role in the pursuit of our vision – a creative and confident society that celebrates diversity.

Our mission is to inspire and challenge everyone who experiences the MAC and that includes people who work with us; to create unforgettable experiences that change people’s view of their society and their place in it; to create a space that kick starts connections between people, and between people and art, and to reach further into society to those who live with the worst effects of inequality and division.

At the MAC we are passionate about everything we do. We want people who share that passion for delivering the highest possible level of performance in everything that they do – people who are open to ideas, to collaboration, to challenges and to new ways of thinking.

If you’re a high-performing person inspired by our vision and mission and are passionate about working hard to help us achieve these, we want to hear from you.

If successful, you will be joining a highly motivated professional team which prides itself on delivering outstanding results and having some fun along the way.  We work hard here, respect our colleagues, develop our team members, and do whatever’s necessary to make the MAC the best that it can be in order to make it a great place to visit and work in.
