Job Opportunity

Lancaster Litfest has an exciting job opportunity!

Lancaster Litfest aims to stimulate, promote and reflect the best in contemporary  literature, illustration and ideas in the UK and beyond. As one of the oldest literature festivals in the country we have successfully created a wide variety of events for audiences since 1978, always championing the local and the international. Currently a volunteer organisation, we now seek to build on this legacy to create the capacity to deliver programmes and events all year round leading up to and beyond the festival.

To be able to deliver our ambition, Lancaster Litfest requires a part-time Project Manager to manage two key projects as part of an Arts Council England-funded programme of activity to accompany our 2021 Festival. The projects are designed to develop our audience and participants in Lancaster and the wider area, encouraging reading and storytelling across the region and building engagement with our festival, which will take place in March 2021.

We require the successful candidate to manage these two aspects of the festival on time within budget and within scope. To oversee all aspects of the projects and to set deadlines, assign responsibilities and monitor and summarise progress of the projects for the board.
