We are looking for a creative and caring individual with a can-do attitude to work across our growing range of V21 Creating projects. The successful candidate will join our V21 Creating team to cover staff absence and support our creative and commercial project development, ensuring that we consistently provide an excellent experience for our trainees and quality outcomes for our customers. Our V21 Creating department comprises our long established V21 Pottery and V21 Crafts @ Fairwater, our brand new ‘eco’ V21 Crafts @ Barry, and incorporates our seasonal V21 Holiday Arts project for young adults. We also have another fledgling Crafts sister-project that’s just launching, also at our Sbectrwm centre in Fairwater. There’s a lot of change and creating going on! As our V21 Creating Projects Cover Worker you may be working alongside a colleague one day helping to create ceramics in V21 Pottery, then leading our V21 Crafts trainees to make greeting cards and gifts the next.

We put the happiness of our trainees at the heart of everything we do, and your main duty is to work together with us to ensure their needs are met.
When everyone is fit and available and we don’t need project cover, you will use your creative skills to support the team with their workload and project development. To achieve all of this a driving licence and use of a vehicle is essential, along with the ability to adapt and think on your feet to ensure everyone has a creative and productive day.
