Creative Dundee is thrilled to be looking for an access producer — an exciting new role with the organisation.

Creative Dundee wants to do better at making our organisation, programmes and events more accessible and relevant to those who have been systemically excluded from a wide variety of programming, including topics which advance social justice for all. The last couple of years have also made starkly visible the fact that people facing severe inequalities are most likely to face the impacts of the climate emergency hardest.

The access producer is a newly created role within Creative Dundee, working with us to address some of the social, economic and structural barriers that continue to exist for communities across the Tay region.

The access producer will work closely with the team to identify these issues and create opportunities, and to develop tailored responses to reduce inequalities and improve diversity and access across our CULTIVATE programme – a pilot project for Creative Practitioners and local communities to collaboratively explore new ways of embedding creativity at the core of grassroots collective action for climate justice, across the Tay region.

As a small organisation, we rely on team members who are confident leading their work independently, and who also enjoy closely collaborating with and supporting others. We greatly value individual skill sets; ideas will always be listened to and there is lots of scope and support to develop them.

Amongst other aspects, we are looking for someone with the following skills and attributes:

  • Excellent communicator, with sensitivity and interpersonal skills
  • Network connector, with an understanding of the issues impacting people within the Tay region and a commitment to championing social justice
  • Practical and solutions focused, with an enthusiasm for training, mentoring and supporting others

Here’s a flavour the access producer role:

  • Build relationships with external community/creative organisations across the Tay region to better share knowledge, network connections and learning with a creative/climate focus.
  • Write blogs and identify people to create content for Creative Dundee’s website to share best practice approaches, or raise awareness of particular barriers, experiences and perspectives.
  • Design, co-ordinate and deliver open public workshops, talks and events on topics that centre social and climate justice (there is a defined budget for this).
  • Develop an access plan with Creative Dundee’s staff team that can be used to inform future developments/programmes.

We want to ensure that our application process does not present any accessibility barriers to potential applicants. If we can provide any assistance to support you through this process (or if you want to discuss alternative ways to show your skills and relevant experience), please do get in touch if you would like to discuss this—contact Andy Truscott, Team Producer, at

Salary: Annual salary range for a 4-day week employment is £26,638—£28,698, dependent upon relevant skills and experience.

Contract: fixed term (Jun 2022—Oct 2023) although we are flexible to consider self-employment.

Deadline to apply: 9am, Thursday 12 May 2022
