Creative England Chief Executive

England.  Full Time £80-£90k dependent on experience

Creative England is a new organisation which will be operational from October 2011, with the core purpose of supporting the sustainable growth of independent creative businesses, and the talent that feeds them, in every part of England outside London.

A dynamic and committed individual is being sought to lead this new organisation as Chief Executive.

This is a fantastic opportunity to play a major part in boosting England’s creative industries, one of the fastest growing sectors in the UK. Creative England will build on the work of the Regional Screen Agencies that, for the past ten years, have assisted the development of the film, TV, interactive, games and digital media industries, and the growth of film culture in England.

One of Creative England’s first objectives is to establish a new infrastructure for film in the English regions, laying the foundations for the development and sustainability of a vibrant film and moving image culture outside of London. It will endeavour to ensure that the best talent is supported, that audiences have access to a wide and diverse range of moving image products, and that the public benefits from a range of opportunities to engage and participate in contemporary film and moving image culture.

The ideal candidate will have a demonstrable record of success in high profile leadership roles. An accomplished communicator, you will be a driven and visionary individual with entrepreneurial flair with experience in both public and private sectors. Being faced with many organisational challenges you must have first class negotiation and communication skills, and be able to deliver innovative and strategic responses.

DEADLINE: Friday 12th August 2011 (midday)

INTERVIEWS: w/c 5th September in London (venue tbc)
