Craft and design manager

Part time: 20 hours per week Wednesday-Saturday, 10am-3pm

Salary: £11,466 – £12,266 (entry point linked to experience)

We are hiring a craft and design manager to lead the curation, development, supervision and operational management of the Barn’s retail spaces, primarily FOLD craft and design store.

The Barn understands that both makers and customers are thinking about ecological and climate issues more than ever before. As we enter a new phase of collaborative working within the Barn’s activity, we want to connect craft and environmental awareness more holistically within the programming and retail offer. The craft and design manager will be a key connector in this transformation. They will manage the Barn’s craft and retail spaces whilst utilising the Barn’s programme and approach to deliver workshops and events, working closely with partners to explore how slow-living, slow-making, greening and conscious retail approaches evolve.

We encourage applications from people who are underrepresented in our organisation and in the arts and cultural sector. In particular we encourage submissions from people who identify as disabled, neurodivergent, from the global majority (referring to people who are Black, Asian, Brown, dual-heritage, indigenous to the global south and/or have been racialised as ‘ethnic minorities’) and/or otherwise marginalised in the arts, craft and design sector.
