More about this exciting role:
As Chief Executive, you will work alongside a skilled and experienced network of carnival professionals and volunteers to successfully deliver four Caribbean Carnivals in Derby, Leicester, Nottingham and Northampton and an annual Regional Costume Competition. You will help EMCCAN to publicise and share best practice with the UK carnival sector and showcase the achievements, reach and artistic quality of its carnivals, events and engagement projects to key stakeholders. Key to this role is managing the relationship with Arts Council England, and the NPO Funding Agreement, guiding the network members on key funding requirements.
Now embedded in the UK’s Carnival arts sector, EMCCAN is in its 12th year of operation. In 2012 it became an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation in recognition of its excellent track record that builds on 45 years of East Midlands Caribbean Carnivals and the hard work and commitment of over 340 volunteers that make its carnival season a success. It successfully applied to be part of the ACE Portfolio between 2018 and 2023, and has recently submitted a proposal to ACE for further funding between 2023 and 2026 .
Building on the substantial achievements of EMCCAN’s outgoing Chief Executive, Donna Fox, you will bring with you your passion and commitment to the arts, and your substantial experience in a leadership position. As EMCCAN’s new Chief Executive, you will be supported by a dedicated Board of Directors who are committed to ensuring EMCCAN can deliver on its vision and mission and work in ways that embody our values, in particular giving voice to those that are underrepresented and to ensuring inclusivity across all our work. This includes our recruitment processes, and we welcome applications from all sections of the community, especially those who are underrepresented in the arts sector.
The closing date for this role is Sunday 10th July.
