Invitation to tender: administrative services

The National Campaign for the Arts (NCA) is the UK’s independent campaigning organisation for the arts. It provides a voice for the sector and ensures that artists, arts organisations, the media and politicians have access to relevant, robust data and intelligence to make the case for the arts effectively. Current activities include the Hearts for the Arts Awards, Arts Index, and political lobbying.

The NCA is run by an active board of volunteer trustees, chaired by Samuel West. Following a grant from Arts Council England, executive support services were provided for over 18 months by an external consultancy to develop the charity’s profile, activities and individual giving scheme. The board is now looking for freelance support to undertake the administration of the charity and these activities.

The contract is initially for six months with the potential to extend, to start as soon as possible, with an indicative fee of around £150/per day available. It is envisaged that the work should take approx. one day per week, with an additional two days per board meeting. Most work to be done remotely, with attendance in person at board meetings in London required every two months.

The deadline for applications is 12 noon on Wednesday 3 January 2018. Interviews will take place in mid-January in London. Please email a response to the invitation to tender (to include relevant CVs and a breakdown of costs) to
