Job opportunities

Charleston is an internationally important home of artists, writers and intellectuals of the Bloomsbury group within the South Downs National Park. The Charleston Trust is an independent charity, enterprising and innovating to ensure the long-term preservation of the fabric of the house and garden. Charleston is also the home to a growing portfolio of festivals including the 10 day Charleston Festival which is now in its 29th year, the Small Wonder Short Story Festival and a new Festival of the Garden.

2018 sees Charleston grow into new spaces with the opening of a destination restaurant, an auditorium in a converted historic barn, and a new building housing five galleries. Charleston will now be open all year, attracting larger and more diverse audiences to the site for exhibitions and a growing public programme of events and learning.

The Trust is looking to meet these new and exciting developments by creating some new positions and opportunities to join our enthusiastic and dynamic team.

 

Charleston particularly welcomes applications from disabled and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people as they are currently underrepresented in our workforce.

Because of Charleston’s rural location the post holder must be aware that getting to work without use of a car involves some additional planning and commitment.
