Opportunities with Moving Memory

Moving Memory is embarking on an exciting new phase of development, with a particular focus on growing our Moving Well participatory workshops and activities. We are training a new team of Moving Well facilitators and involving voluteers more actively in helping deliver our work. We anticipate this will help us increase our capacity to set up Moving Well groups in communities across Kent.

We are looking to fill two new paid posts. We are also looking for new Trustees – people who could share their skills and experience as members of our governing body. Details are below, together with a brief guide to our approach to recruitment. Please email cathy@movingmemorydance.com to arrange an informal chat if you are interested in any of these roles – or if you think you could support our development in another way.

Deadline for all roles is 23.59 on Sunday 27th February 2022. Interviews are likely to be in week commencing 7th March.

Thank you so much for your interest in Moving Memory
