Based in the purpose-built Jerwood DanceHouse on the Ipswich waterfront, the CAT Officer will form a central part of the small, fast-paced team responsible for the development and delivery of the core CAT programme within the wider Creative Team.

With activity that spans Suffolk, Norfolk, Essex, and Cambridge, you will be the first point of contact for CAT students, families, tutors and partners; responsible for overseeing day-to-day operations as well as contributing to ongoing development of the programme.

The role includes coordinating student wellbeing; managing data; marketing support; coordination of projects, workshops, and events; supporting the pastoral needs of young people; and contributing to the Safeguarding provision at DanceEast. Flexibility around evenings/weekends is essential.

If you think you have the skills and attitude to positively contribute to our dynamic team and are interested in developing a career in arts education, we would love to hear from you. Email the CAT Manager tom.bowes@danceeast.co.uk for an informal discussion.

If you do not meet all the relevant experience and qualifications for the role, but you think you are the ideal candidate, please get in touch to discuss.

To apply, the Application Form and Equal Opportunities Monitoring Form should ideally be completed electronically and emailed to HR@danceeast.co.uk; or sent by post to Bill Armitage, Head of Operations & Resources, Jerwood DanceHouse, Foundry Lane, Ipswich IP4 1DW, marked “Private and Confidential”.
