Who are Creative Consultants?

Creative Consultants are a team of talented young people (aged 18-29) who deliver workshops in communities and with businesses. They come from diverse backgrounds and have a range of creative skills. They meet regularly to train and collaborate together, to learn from industry professionals and one another, and to get support as they establish themselves as successful creative professionals.

What is the deal?

Creative Consultants are offered wrap-around professional development, including practical skills-based learning, 1-2-1 career coaching and paid employment as creative workshop facilitators.  There is no charge to become a Creative Consultant – all training and support is free of charge.

Is it for you?

If you are trying to establish a career within creative industries, this could be just what you need.  Perhaps you are working part-time in hospitality or retail whilst you get your freelance creative work going… or you’re considering running workshops in your art form to supplement income from making art / performing.  This program will give you the skills and confidence you need to make your creative career happen.

How to become a Creative Consultant

If you are interested in becoming a Creative Consultant you must evidence that you are able to work at least to Assistant level, by responding to the following three questions:
1. What is your current creative practice and how have you used it when working with others?
2. What would you like to further learn / develop as a workshop facilitator at this stage?  Why is this important to you?
3. What do you understand the term ‘professional behaviour’ to mean?  Give as many examples as you can.

Please note, applicants must be available for the following dates/times in order to be considered:
- shortlisted candidate recruitment workshop on Monday 12 August 3-5pm in Adelaide CBD
- successful candidate induction day 10am-6pm Tuesday 27 August
- successful candidate training day (with the existing Creative Consultants team) 10am-6pm Wednesday 28 August.

You can answer the three questions above by completing a simple application form. If your application is successful you will be invited to attend a recruitment workshop as the final stage of the assessment process. During that workshop you will learn a little more about the deal between Carclew and the Creative Consultants, and we will learn a little more about you.  Then if you’re happy and we’re happy, you join the team.

That’s it! Hopefully now you feel ready to fill in the application form, but if you have any questions please email Paul Mayers, Senior Manager, Social Enterprise at pmayers@carclew.org.au
