Apply to become an Artis Specialist


Artis are looking for performing arts specialists to join our team in London, the Home Counties, and the Midlands from January 2019.

What do we do?

Artis is a creative learning charity which 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 are highly skilled, imaginative and versatile performing arts specialists who can commit to delivering our creative curriculum on an ongoing basis (weekly – term time) across the course of the forthcoming 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.

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. A willingness to travel within your region is essential. Opportunities for work are available in:

  • London and the Home Counties
  • The Midlands

What do you gain?

Access to our award winning training and development programme, delivered by experts in their field and experienced Artis Specialists alike. Our training covers all aspects of the performing arts (music, drama and dance) and leadership skills necessary to deliver inspired and inspiring work in the school context.

Our excellent mentoring system supports and advises on every aspect of planning and delivery. Our Mentors meet with Artis Specialists regularly and support them throughout the academic year.

Competitive daily rates: starting at £114 and reviewed annually.
