This is an exciting opportunity to join the Trust at a “start-up” phase, as we move to a clear vision of the Multiverse’s purpose, with a move from our Sanquhar office to the newly installed offices on the site itself during September.

Crawick Multiverse Trust was established with charitable status in 2008 to manage and develop an extraordinary and innovative land art project created by international land artist and theorist, the late Charles Jencks. The purpose of this major land restoration is to transform a former opencast coalmine into a public amenity for the enjoyment of the local community and audiences from further afield. The 55-acre Crawick Multiverse explores themes of astronomy and cosmology, embedding them into the landscape.

On-site visitor facilities are currently in the making to improve the visitor experience, expand the events programme and establish the Multiverse as an exceptional outdoor venue. A “soft” opening in September will be followed by a formal opening in October 2020.

Hosting on-site performances from all the Arts, talks and outdoor educational opportunities, the Multiverse seeks to become recognised as an accessible space for multidisciplinary collaborations attracting a diverse spectrum of people and organisations.

Outline of role & responsibilities:

Provision of a wide range of support to the General Manager and the Board.

Answer and deal with all contacts, including those via social media in a pleasant, efficient and professional manner.

Prepare Board papers (monthly) ; take minutes and distribute information to the 5 Board members.
