LifeSkills Project supports unemployed and inactive residents living primarily in the Mabgate, Burmantofts and Lincoln Green neighbourhoods and surrounding areas of Harehills and Gipton to find pathways to employment using arts engagement activities, support, mentoring and advice, alongside the development of a range of lifelong skills to make a successful transition into the labour market.

East Street Arts will deliver a programme of participatory arts activities, digital capability upskilling, practical skills in job search using creative engagement strategies and workplace experiences with participants. The programme will engage participants in weekly sessions, hands-on activities, 1-2-1 mentorships, work placement and shadowing.

Salary: £17,280 part time at 27 hours per week (full time equivalent salary: £24,000 per annum).
