Join The Team


We are looking for individuals who have a ‘passion for making a difference’ to help build people’s confidence through art forms. It is essential you have an understanding of the person-centred approach and are interested in working creatively with a hard-working team. 

WISE UP are looking for people who are positive (a must), reliable & committed.

Drama and art training is not essential (although very useful for the job role)/ Experience working in SEN and adult services welcomed. We also welcome teachers, NQT’s, Nursery Nurses, counsellors and therapists as well as artists to the team.

We are currently recruiting for workshops leaders and assistants to deliver workshops, after school clubs and groups for young people & adults with learning differences at local venues in Lancaster & Morecambe. Various times (includes weekend hours).

There are summer hours available as well as voluntary, college and university placements.

You must be willing to promote our work through weekly flyering and visiting local organisations including schools to deliver information sessions about the work that we do.

WISE UP works like a co-operative, you help us to generate the work to get the work- we all work together to grow, expand and learn about what our community needs and wants through truly listening.

You must be willing to attend our induction training (a full day) voluntary before your job role commences, to be interviewed by the attendees (young people and adult attendees from our workshops) and to plan & deliver a workshop as part of the interview.

A DBS check is essential for the job role. WISE UP will deduct the cost of this from your first month pay, if you stay with us after the trial period this will be reimbursed.

Various rates of pay- this will be discussed at the interview stage.
