Invitation to Tender

The UKCCA Board agree that the time is right for a strategic review of UKCCA, drawing on the organisation’s past successes and establishing a strong new resilient business plan that will make the most of the current opportunities and assets. The need for the review has been given additional impetus by the recent global pandemic, national issues around racial inequality, Black Lives Matter and a changing arts ecology in Luton.
This is an exciting opportunity to support UKCCA through the next stage of its development into a thriving carnival organisation based in one of the most diverse towns in the UK.

The Board are looking for an experienced person who will have oversight of this strategic review, combine it with hands on knowledge of how the organisation works and support UKCCA through the next 12 months to action changes to the business plan, ultimately supporting UKCCA to thrive in the long-term.
This opportunity is open to either an individual or a small team that will work with the Board to ensure that the organisation has robust business and financial models, mission and ethos that staff, board and stakeholders can all confidently commit to.
