About the job

Job description

This is a really exciting opportunity to lead the strategy for a major cross-Whitehall project that will deliver benefits for DCMS, BEIS, DIT, FCO and MHCLG (at a minimum) and will drive growth and enrich lives.

The Festival in 2022 will showcase British creativity and innovation, delivering a meaningful return on investment in terms of inward investment, exports and soft power. It will also be a moment of inspiration for the people of the United Kingdom, fostering well-being and community cohesion.

The post holder will work closely with a separate Deputy Director-led team responsible for the Festival as a major project (project set up and oversight, including the PMO function, analysis and evaluation and financial management).

If you are an extraordinary leader, strategic thinker and a creative policy maker who can build excellent relationships to drive delivery, and if you enjoy working in a fast paced, intellectually stimulating environment, please refer to the attached candidate pack for more details and instructions on how to apply.
