Cockpit Arts aims to be an equitable employer. We recognise and encourage the potential of a diverse workforce and appoint on merit.

Creative Employment Programme

JulieCockpit Arts’ Creative Employment Programme was established in 2013 as an initiative to help studio holders take on their first employees and to increase opportunities for employment in the craft sector. After successfully receiving funds from CCSkills’ Creative Employment Programme, supported using public funding by Arts Council England, Cockpit will help 22 craft business owners recruit 14 paid apprentices and interns by Summer 2015. Please note: Creative Employment Programme funded internships have fixed criteria, including you must be 18 – 24 and registered unemployed with Jobcentre Plus at the time of applying. These eligibility criteria have been approved by the Department of Work and Pensions.
