British Council is looking for professionals to evaluate Culture Bridges grant programme applications

If you’ve got five years’ experience working in the cultural or creative industry sector and practical project management experience, then this opportunity should interest you.

The British Council wishes to expand the pool of local experts to support the assessment of grant applications to the programme and the monitoring and evaluation of cooperation projects funded by the programme. Grant calls for cooperation projects will be held twice a year, while cooperation projects may go on throughout the year.

The timeline of calls for 2018 is available here.

Assessors / monitors should have: 

  • A university degree or equivalent qualification;
  • At least five years' demonstrable professional experience in the cultural or creative industries;
  • Good knowledge of Project Cycle Management and Logical Framework approaches;
  • Fluency in spoken and written Ukrainian, English and Russian;

Demonstrable experience of the technical and financial assessment of proposals, and the monitoring of funded projects, under other grant schemes, will be an advantage. 

Acceptance as a local expert does not guarantee the commissioning of any actual assignments. These will be allocated by the British Council on the basis of programme need. 

Please note that acceptance and contracting as a local expert will mean that such experts (and/or their organisation) cannot be part of any application to any call for proposals under the programme. 

Application and evaluation process 

Applicants wishing to be considered for the role of local expert must submit the following documents: 

  • A detailed CV in English in the Europass format;
  • A one-page cover letter briefly describing the applicant's relevant experience and motivation to become a local expert for the Culture Bridges programme.

Applications should be sent by email to the following address: with the subject line Application for assessor under the Culture Bridges Programme. 

The deadline for applications is 27 November 2018 18:00 GMT+2.
