The Exeter Canal and Quay Trust (ECQT) is seeking to appoint a freelance consultant to provide operational support for its Board of Trustees.

Established as an independent charity in 1981 ECQT has recently embarked on several new initiatives. These include the ACE-supported development of its flagship building, the Grade 1-listed Exeter Custom House, as a literature hub in the context of Exeter’s UNESCO City of Literature programme.

Later this year, ECQT will be adopting a new Vision for 2021-26. Next year it will be piloting new arts and heritage initiatives. These will be delivered in close collaboration with partners who currently include Exeter City Council (for theCustom House Visitor Centre) and Literature Works (for the Quay Words 2020-22 programme).

As ECQT’s activities expand we are looking to appoint a consultant for three principal areas of work:
– Providing operational support to ECQT trustees
– Managing, coordinating and promoting ECQT’s programmes and activities
– Liaising with kindred organisations and existing/potential partners, and
representing ECQT in external affairs.

Deadline: 3rd September 2020, 12 noon.
