Careers and Opportunities
Literature Wales recognizes the contribution of its employees and is committed to providing good working conditions and a healthy working environment. We value the contribution of our employees, facilitators, writers and creative practitioners – they are at the heart of all we do.
We are committed to supporting everyone in their role and offer a range of internal as well as external training opportunities. In addition to an annual Professional Development Review, each staff member will have regular sessions with their line manager to ensure they have everything they need to succeed in their role. We recognize the importance of a healthy work-life balance and operate an agile and a hybrid working model. We offer generous holiday entitlement to our team, including St David’s Day (1 March), and are open to flexible working arrangements.
Literature Wales aims to be an inclusive organisation committed to welcoming candidates from a wide range of backgrounds. We assess applications on the strength of potential, and we will take positive action by guaranteeing an interview to every applicant who meets the suitability requirements of the role and who identifies as under-represented within the literary sector. Our aim is to develop literature as an art form that is representative and accessible to everyone in Wales. We believe that we can best deliver that aim by creating a diverse workforce with varied lived experiences.
For more information, please see our Equality, Inclusion, Diversity Plan for 2022-25. If you would like to apply for this role but are uncertain whether you have sufficient experience, please contact us for an informal chat.
Our recruitment framework has been developed as part of the Weston Jerwood Creative Bursaries Programme, which supports arts organisations to expand their approach to diverse recruitment and talent development.
Literature Wales works in Welsh, English and bilingually across Wales. Tŷ Newydd Writing Centre in Llanystumdwy is our headquarters, which includes the residential centre and an office. We also have an office at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay.
