Work for Us


ActionSpace seeks a General Manager for a fixed-term maternity cover.

ActionSpace is London’s leading and longest running visual arts organisation for artists with learning disabilities. Our vision is for artists with learning disabilities to be at the heart of the visual arts sector.

As one of only four organisations in London to receive an uplift in Arts Council England’s 2018-22 National Portfolio Organisation funding round, we are entering into an exciting new period of development. This will include expanding our exhibitions and events programme and developing new partnerships in the contemporary visual arts sector to create more opportunities for artists with learning disabilities.

We are seeking a forward-thinking General Manager who can bring their ideas, energy and enthusiasm to:

  • assisting the two chief-executives to grow and develop ActionSpace’s profile as one of the UK’s premier supported studios for artists with learning disabilities.
  • providing robust administrative support in order to ensure the organisation is able to continue carrying out its work to the high standard it has become known for.

The ideal candidate will be a team player, enjoy using their initiative to generate new ideas and find solutions, and be a self-starter ready to support colleagues at all levels.

Whilst the role is based in our centrally located office in Holborn, the post holder will also have opportunities to visit our projects across London.

The General Manager post is full time.

Term: This is a fixed-term maternity cover contract to run for 9 months from 1 May 2018, with the potential to extend subject to confirmation of the Post-Holder’s return date.
