General Manager job role

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

Building on its 18 years of experience as a cultural catalyst and home for imaginative freedom IMAC is now establishing 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 is currently underway 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 its growing 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 creatively disruptive force for inclusivity, and cultural and social change.

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