Recruiting for Relief Caretaker

Knowle West Media Centre is looking to recruit a reliable Relief Caretaker to provide caretaking and cleaning services to cover holiday and sick leave for our full-time caretaker.

The successful applicant will need to have a flexible and adaptable approach to the duties involved and a willingness to work irregular hours (early morning, evenings and very occasional weekends).

The Relief Caretaker will work a minimum of five weeks a year (to cover holidays) and the post would ideally suit a local person who can work split shifts. An example of a split shift might be working 7am to 9am then returning to work 5.30pm to 8.30pm. The Relief Caretaker will work up to maximum of 37 hours a week.

Meet the 2014 Junior Digital Producers

In October 2014 Knowle West Media Centre employed eight Junior Digital Producers (JDPs) – a group of young people aged 18-24 who are working collaboratively on an exciting web design, video and data project called ‘Visible You‘.

The project will produce an interactive documentary focusing on social isolation amongst teenagers in South Bristol.

The Junior Digital Producers (JDPs) are with us for six months, in a role supported by the Creative Employment Programme, and they are the second cohort of young people to be employed in this way – the first having worked on the Data Patchwork programme. Throughout their six months with us, all JDPs receive skills and employability training, whilst undertaking project work and research.

Some are joining us straight from education whilst others have had various work experiences. As the group are at the halfway point between education and their first job in the creative industries, the JDP role offers the opportunity to learn new skills and grow in a creative environment. So far they have had workshops covering web coding, photography, documentary and film training. They have been guided by project leader Naomi Yates, who has organised external workshops with organisations and companies including Ludic Rooms.

Now in the programme’s third month, the JDPs each have their roles within the project and they will be updating the Visible You project page regularly.

What we’re dreaming of in 2015

Bristol Maker Lab is one of the big ideas dreamed up in our Do What You Love programme – we hope it will be a place for everyone to make their own products and become entrepreneurs. Bristol Maker Lab will have the very latest equipment, like 3D printers and laser cutters, with experts on hand to show people how to use them. It will be open to the public so that people can start designing and making things to sell. There’ll be a programme of classes about how to make great things using the equipment – anything from jewellery to robots to spare parts for washing machines. We’ve made a lovely brochure explaining how it will all work, which you can download here: Bristol Maker Lab For more details contact Hazel or Justin.
