Apply to become an Artis Specialist in London/Home Counties or Leeds


What do we do?

Artis helps children achieve at school by integrating the performing arts throughout their learning. Artis creates a very different experience from a typical classroom by linking music, drama and dance to curriculum learning as facilitated by performing arts specialists (Artis Specialists). Working as an Artis Specialist gives practitioners a platform to use their creativity within an educational context, offering training and support along the way. We attract the best practitioners because we respect and nourish artistic talent.

What are we looking for?

Artis Specialists to join our thriving team: highly skilled, imaginative and versatile performing arts specialists who can commit to delivering our creative curriculum on an ongoing basis across the academic year in primary schools. Artis Specialists deliver anything from half a day to 4 days a week, returning to the same school(s) each week throughout the academic year.

We welcome applications from performers from a broad range of backgrounds; and we are particular interested in hearing from you if you have a music background.

The ideal candidate will have experience and a passion for working with children in an educational setting and be open to delivering holistically. We're looking for practitioners with a flair for communication, who are open to new challenges and are inspired to nurture creativity in children.

It is essential that candidates are available to commit to ongoing, regular work in order to be considered for this role. We are currently looking for Specialists who are able to work in either London and the Home Counties or Leeds - a willingness to travel within your region is essential.

If this sounds like you, please get in touch.
