New Writing North

New Writing North is the literature development agency for the North of England, and an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation. We work in partnership with regional and national partners to produce a range of literary and performance activities including flagship projects such as the Northern Writers’ Awards, Young Writers, the David Cohen Prize, the Gordon Burn Prize and Durham Book Festival.

We’re a small organisation with a dedicated, creative team, supported by a great board of trustees. Based in Newcastle upon Tyne, we work to support writers and literature across the North of England.

We’re looking to recruit an organised, multi-tasker to join us to support our finance, administration and operations. You’ll be unflappable, with a keen eye for detail, have great communication skills and a desire to work in the cultural sector.

You will work closely with our Finance and Administration team to ensure that our finances and administrative operations are well managed.
