Current Opportunities


SALARY: £30,000 over a three year period

POSITION: Consultancy until March 2021


Create London wishes to appoint a consultant to work with the team carrying out an exciting three-year project establishing The White House as a permanent artist space to facilitate community development, exchange, learning and research. It is a complex project that needs a multi-layered and iterative approach to evaluation and learning that is built into project development and does not overstretch capacity. It needs to be flexible, responsive, evolving and formative. It needs to be primarily qualitative to reflect the ‘lived’ and experienced nature of the programme.

The role requires an experienced researcher/ evaluator able to support the Create team to use The White House as a way to embed an approach to learning and evaluation into the heart of all the organisation does. What the programme requires is a critical friend and an external eye who will be able to check and challenge, bringing a degree of objectivity to the process whilst building internal capacity.


The Research and Evaluation Consultant will provide a range of support that includes:

  • Acting as a critical friend, providing a check and challenge to the work being carried out by the team and walking alongside the project;
  • Supporting the self evaluation process with data collection, analysis and interpretation;
  • Carrying out primary research where necessary to bring an external perspective – this is likely to include the facilitation of regular reflection meetings, interviews with Create staff, residents and artists;
  • Support with dissemination.

To apply, please send a brief proposal (no more than three sides of A4) outlining your approach to the brief along with your CV and two references to Sorrel Hershberg, Executive Director, Create London, Barbican Centre, London EC2Y 8DS, or via e-mail:
