Consultation: Understanding the reputation of Arts Council England as an employer

Take part in this consultation to help Arts Council England improve the how it presents itself and expand the profile of the arts and culture sector.

The Institute for Employment Studies (IES) has been commissioned by Arts Council England to help them understand what potential job applicants, at all stages of their creative and cultural careers, think of the organisation as a place to work.

As an organisation they champion the development and investment in artistic and cultural experiences that enrich people's lives. They support activities across the arts, museums and libraries – from theatre to digital art, reading to dance, music to literature, and crafts to collections.

It is therefore of paramount importance to them they attract the best and most diverse talent possible - spanning the depth and breadth of the sector they deal with in order for them to deliver their strategy ‘Great Art and Culture for Everyone’.

The research will help Arts Council England to improve the way it presents itself to potential candidates in the future and expand the profile of the sector.

It will help them be better placed to address key challenges and opportunities in relation to audience development, widening public engagement, diversifying the workforce, and refreshing leadership and governance to reflect the diversity of contemporary England across all aspects of their work.

You are invited to respond to a short online consultation.

The questions will take around ten minutes to answer.

We would like to find out a bit more about what your long-term career goals, your experiences of looking for work in the creative and cultural sectors, your knowledge and views about Arts Council England and your opinion on diversity in the sector.

All information collected will be kept confidential and no-one outside of the IES research team will have access to any information provided from or about you.

Any quotes or experiences you share will be reported in way that does not identify you.

Take part in the consultation.

If you have a disability or health condition and would prefer to share your views over the phone rather than in writing, please let us know and we will arrange this for you.
