Helium Arts, the national children’s arts and health organisation, is seeking a motivated, experienced and highly organised Programme Coordinator to support the management of Helium’s national Creative Health Hub programme.

About the Creative Health Hub programme
Helium Arts’ Creative Health Hub model is an exciting new approach to bringing their multi-disciplinary creative projects to many more children and teenagers across Ireland. In each Creative Health Hub location, Helium’s artists deliver a continuous programme of activity connecting between hospitals, community and public settings. The programme supports children and young people to let their creativity shine, and shows the difference creative engagement can make to the lives of children facing the social and emotional challenges of long-term illness. Helium’s Creative Health Hubs are currently based in Cork, Limerick and Galway.

Role Description 
This is a part-time, three-day week position which can be delivered remotely with monthly meetings in Helium’s office in Mullingar and occasional travel to hub locations in Cork, Galway, and Limerick. The programme co-ordinator reports to Helium’s programme manager.

The programme coordinator will be flexible and capable of managing competing priorities within their workload and will have a robust knowledge of children’s participatory and collaborative arts. An understanding of arts and health is desirable. A key focus will be to provide support in coordinating, liaising, and communicating with the creative team and partners including lead employed artists, freelance artist panel, and volunteers as well as venue partners, medics and technical staff to ensure smooth delivery of the programme on the ground as well as ongoing development of the programme.

Application process 
Please contact Lauren White, Administrator, through hr@helium.ie to request the full job description and application process.

Closing Date: Thursday 17 February 2022 at 5pm.
