Vision Wasps vision is to be an inspirational home for creative practice. Through its activities and advocacy Wasps will continue to deliver affordable spaces in which the broad artistic community can realise and share its talent and skills. Wasps has a 40 year track record of supporting the arts community in Scotland and we have grown to become one of the UK’s largest studio providers. As an established social enterprise, we currently house 800 visual artists, 25 arts charities and 30 creative industries at 19 sites from the Scottish Borders to the Shetland Islands. Their work in turn touches the lives of thousands of people across Scotland and beyond and contributes significantly to Scotland’s cultural economy. We now wish to recruit for a Project Development Manager to take forward a series of new development projects to expand our network, initially in Inverness, Perth and Glasgow. Our activities support the regeneration of many deprived communities across Scotland. We redevelop redundant, historic buildings into beautiful facilities for artists and makers, attracting jobs and improving the physical appearance of local communities. To date we have raised c. £27million to invest in buildings for creative use across Scotland. We now own approximately two thirds of our property portfolio, securing permanent studios for a wide range of artists and makers. In the past 18 months we have delivered new studio buildings in Orkney and Nairn, and a live- work- residency facility in Skye. In recent years we have been using our expertise in the property sector to provide workspaces for creative businesses alongside artists in creative hubs, with the profit from this venture being reinvested back into our charitable work. This growth in scale has enabled us to become a fully self-financing charity and social enterprise and we have won many awards over the years to reflect this successful approach. As a growing organisation we are also now account managed by both Scottish Enterprise and Highlands and Islands Enterprise. Wasps is now working to deliver creative hubs in Scotland’s smaller cities – Inverness and Perth - and to complete the redevelopment of the Briggait in Glasgow as the Briggait Creation Centre, Scotland’s first creation centre and the UK’s largest. The post of Project Development Manager will work to our Head of Projects to achieve delivery of this capital programme.
