Deadline Extended: Summit Seeks a Volunteer Manager

The Edinburgh International Culture Summit brings together Culture Ministers, artists, thinkers and arts leaders from around the world to share ideas, expertise and best practice, with a view to inspiring positive change in cultural policy and investment.

The Edinburgh International Culture Summit is an initiative of the British Council, Edinburgh International Festival, Scottish and UK Governments and the Scottish Parliament. Set against the incomparable backdrop of one of the world’s greatest cultural events, the Edinburgh Festivals, the Culture Summit is uniquely placed to facilitate genuine and creative exchange between practitioners and policy-makers.

Programming and production of the Summit is managed by the Edinburgh International Culture Summit Foundation. The Volunteer Manager will work closely with other members of the Culture Summit delivery team, principally the Programme Manager, Event Manager and Delegates Manager, and with the Summit partners, to deliver the event to the highest standards. Our volunteers undertake a variety of roles including front of house, providing support for international delegations from across the world and supporting event and hospitality logistics.

The core purpose of the Volunteer Manager role is to deliver the volunteer programme which will support the 2022 Edinburgh International Culture Summit. The role requires a high standard of administrative ability and experience, the ability to work unsupervised, excellent communication, leadership and interpersonal skills, and experience of working with volunteers. The successful candidate will demonstrate a high level of professionalism and a sensitivity to the challenges of working with international delegations from a range of countries, in the setting of the Scottish Parliament.

The extended deadline for applications is 5pm on 19 May 2022. Find out more here.
