Business in the Arts:North West is a small charity which exists to bring business skills and experience to the arts in ways that are beneficial both to business and to the arts. We aim to help arts and creative organisations improve their business operations at the same time as providing stimulating and challenging development opportunities for business people.
We are keen to recruit volunteer marketing advisers for our Skills Bank, a project-based programme through which business managers and professionals provide guidance to cultural managers, working towards specific objectives and transferring skills along the way. Examples of current opportunities are:
The programme requires a commitment of just a few hours per month, and gives you the chance to get out of your comfort zone and try out your skills in a new and interesting environment. For CIM members, CPD points can be earned towards your Chartered Marketer status.
Non-marketeers are also welcome, as we have a range of opportunities for people with business skills through both the Skills Bank and the Better Board Bank, which matches appropriately skilled people on to the boards of cultural organisations.
