Hiring: Local Manager + Artist/Event Manager in Edinburgh

Are you passionate about unleashing creativity? Love sharing your passions with others? Looking for flexible, part-time work?

PopUp Painting is looking for somebody with lots of energy to help us launch in Edinburgh as a Local Patch Manager and Events Lead.

Over the past nine years we’ve been on a mission to unleash Britain’s creativity – wine glass in one hand, paintbrush in the other. At our events, guests (most of whom have never painted before) are guided step by step through a masterpiece while they sip, paint and create. Our events are high energy, no judgment, and lots of fun. So far we’ve painted with more than 65,000 people!

The role includes about 10-12 hours per month of management – including liaising with venues to secure dates and helping coordinate the team. We would also be looking for you to do at least 2-4 events per month as either an artist or event manager.

The ability to store kit, access to a car, and weekend availability are essential.

This role is on a self employed contract basis, pro rata £25k PA. To apply please fill in this form and return it to recruitment@popuppainting.com by 25 February 2023. Interviews will take place via Zoom with training taking place in London.

Event work is paid as follows: artist – £70; Event Managers – £60; where Artist/Event Manager is combined – £90. Event support – £40. Where transporting kit, expenses are paid at HMRC rate.
