Education & Community Coordinator, The Photography Foundation

The Photography Foundation is looking for a dynamic Education & Community Coordinator to join the team and support our Foundation Manager in delivering the trainee programme and community outreach projects.

Deadline for applications: 9 July 2020

The Photography Foundation creates pathways to professional photography for less advantaged and under-represented young adults in London by offering education, work experience and alternative routes to a career in the creative industries.

For many young adults, a lack of financial resources, opportunities or industry connections mean that a career in photography is out of reach. We believe that talent and motivation should be more important than who you know or where you come from, and it's our mission to make this a reality.

Through our trainee programme and community outreach projects, we aim to remove barriers to entry and open up photography careers to all, welcoming in the next generation of diverse creative talent.

You will be supporting our Foundation Manager, Bella Okuya, with all aspects of delivering our trainee programme and community projects.

Here are some key areas you’ll be involved in:

Trainee Programme

- Coordinate the recruitment, delivery and evaluation of our trainee programme

- Be the first point of contact for all trainee and mentor enquiries

- Support the Foundation Manager to implement onboarding procedures, monitoring processes and robust evaluations for the trainee programme

- Support the trainees in coordinating any resources they might need for their projects and exhibitions

Community Outreach

- Support the Foundation Manager to coordinate the programme of public talks and events

- Take the lead on our community arts outreach projects, including the development, coordination and co-facilitation of sessions and networks

- Conduct research projects as directed by the Foundation Manager and Foundation Directors

Raising awareness

- Manage the regular scheduling and content creation for our Instagram account

- Contribute to the production of print and digital collateral for the promotion of events and programmes (brochures, flyers, posters etc.)
