We are hiring: Outreach Officer (YPWLD Focused) 

Job title:

Outreach Officer: Young People With Learning Disabilities Focused

Reports to:

Creative Director




3 Years


8hours per week  







CAGED Arts is an arts organisation that work with communities and young people to develop arts projects that build skills and allow young people to engage with their community. Founded in 2015 with support from The Prince’s Trust, we have always been strongly committed to working with young people with learning disabilities and the groups with whom they engage.

This role is supported by BBC Children in Need to work with communities to curate participatory arts workshops for young people with learning disabilities, and explore how arts organisations engage with young people and families in a way which is relevant and useful.

This is a new post, and the successful applicant will be able to shape it however they wish to - with the potential for building a longer running/more substantial role at the end of the project.

The role includes, but is not limited to:

·  Reaching out to community groups and organisations to explore how participatory drama can support them.

·  Liaising with project partners to curate workshop programmes.

·  Maintain spending records and manage small workshop budgets.

·  Collect and collate evaluation data and document project progress for senior members of staff and funders.

You are contracted for 8hours per week, but we are aware that due to the nature of the work this may take many forms; and we are more than happy to talk about what the working day looks like.

We are not looking for anyone with any specific qualifications; but we are looking for someone who demonstrate using initiative and working as part of a small team. Experience of working in the arts or youth work sectors or with young people with learning difficulties is beneficial, but not essential.

As an equal opportunities employer, we encourage applications from people with all backgrounds – if you would like to apply in a different way, or would like to discuss your application further, please get in touch.
