Business and Finance Administrator job role

Islington Mill Arts Club (IMAC) is a well-established artist-led CIC providing affordable studios, venue space and educational provision for the culture sector from its former textile mill in the heart of Salford.

Building on 20 years of experience as a cultural catalyst and home for imaginative freedom IMAC has now established a charity, Islington Mill Foundation, to lead existing creative and learning programmes, and to grow new projects that will impact positively on the cultural and social landscape of the city and the region.

Major renovation work will shortly begin to restore, develop, and make accessible the historic Mill for this new phase of its creative life. Renovated, the building will house the developing Islington Mill Art Academy, as well as events, projects and programmes that will further embed the Mill as a cultural driver in both the history and future of the area.

A regular programme of workshops and events will continue to draw on Islington Mill’s reputation and expertise as a creative and disruptive force for inclusivity, and for cultural and social change.

Further to this we are about to launch a Creative Enterprise Support Programme, the programme will support new and established creative and cultural businesses to build business confidence and aspirations, supporting their growth and development for the future.

This continues to be an exciting point in Islington Mill’s history. With a new organisational structure, business plan, and capital and project funding in place from European Regional Development Fund, The National Lottery Heritage Fund and Arts Council England, it is ready to embark on its next, most exciting, and ambitious phase yet.  The Mill is now seeking an experienced Business and Finance Administrator to work with the Mill’s small but dedicated team to build on this potential.

We are open to applications from people from a range of backgrounds, particularly those who understand how to build strong communities and partnerships.  A full job description is enclosed, but we will consider alternative approaches from interested candidates.
