News! Creative Director and Joint-CEO

We’re looking for an ambitious, strategic leader ready to roll up their sleeves, establish a creative vision and take responsibility for leading the team and delivering Abram Wilson’s next steps. We need someone who appreciates the practicalities of running a small charity, and who has the insight and appetite for the financial, fundraising and day-to-day operational challenges facing an independent organisation without core public support.

More information and how to apply here.

The Trustees are committed to Abram Wilson’s focus on supporting minoritised talent, inclusivity, creative risk, but we’re also open to new possibilities, giving a new Creative Director scope to define what that will look like.

By the end of 2024, we’re aiming for a co-leadership model as we don’t expect everything to be achievable by just one person. At the same time, we’re open to people with skills that sit across both roles.

Given who we are, we are especially interested in applications from people from minoritised backgrounds. We’re also really happy for you to show how you meet the role criteria beyond just your day job (e.g. through volunteer roles or in your personal life).
