Arts jobs on IdeasTap
Getting a job in the arts and creative industries has never been tougher. Budgets are being cut, headcounts reduced – and more and more organisations are taking on upaid interns. But IdeasTap is here to help...
Sadly we can’t get all of our members jobs - but what we can do is make finding what arts jobs are out there easier.
That’s why we’ve created ideastap.com/jobs. We trawl the internet to track down the jobs we think are relevant for our members. Unlike some other jobs sites, all we offer are arts and creative jobs – so you won’t have to trawl through random, irrelevant positions to get to what you’re looking for.
We add around 15 new jobs to the site every day, so it’s worth checking back regularly. And if you don’t want to browse through the whole list, you can use the list of options on the left-hand side of the page to filter your search – by salary, by region, by area of interest and by type of contract.
Equally, if you’re an employer looking for new talent then you’ve come to the right place. Just fill out the simple form at ideastap.com/uploadjob. We can’t guarantee that we’ll put everything up, because we only want to include jobs we think will be of interest to our members – but what does get posted will be seen by huge numbers of IdeasTap members. It’s one of the most popular pages of our site, unsurprisingly.
Finally, we don’t just post jobs – we also help people to prepare for the working world. The IdeasTap Spa is a career service that we offer exclusively for our members. This includes one-to-one CV clinics, portfolio reviews, audition workshops, studio headshot sessions, arts funding surgeries – and a whole host of other career-boosting opportunities. We want IdeasTap members to be as prepared as possible for the tough jobs market that’s out there. Nearly everything we offer in the Spa is free – in the rare cases where we charge, we heavily subsidise the cost.
