Company Description

Cultivator is an innovative project providing an integrated programme of skills and business development support for Small to Medium Enterprises in Cornwall’s creative industries. It is funded by the European Social Fund, the European Regional Development Fund, Arts Council England and Cornwall Council.

The lead partner and the employer for this post is Creative Kernow, one of Cornwall’s leading creative sector organisations; the project is managed as part of the work of Creative Kernow’s well-respected and long-established Creative Skills initiative.

Creative Kernow runs a number of projects in Cornwall apart from Creative Skills, with the key ones being Krowji, the creative workspace cluster in Redruth; the Carn to Cove rural touring scheme; the Cornwall 365 cultural tourism project and the FEAST community arts programme. The organisation is a charitable company limited by guarantee. 

Cultivator partner organisations are Cornwall College, Real Ideas Organisation (RIO), Business West, the Cornwall Museums Partnership (CMP) and Plymouth University.

The project delivers creative specific Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG); mentoring; sector relevant training; a co-investment grants programme; internships and other activities with SMEs that enable students, graduates and non-graduates to gain industry-relevant experience and skills. It works alongside the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly (C&IoS) Growth Hub and generic business support provision to deliver bespoke and highly specialist coaching, mentoring and targeted investment needed to build capacity and maximise the growth potential of the creative industries.

This is now the midpoint of the Cultivator project, which currently has an end date of September 2019. From the experience gained during the first year of working with the museum clients, a need has been identified for a Creative Business and Marketing Advisor to provide dedicated support to the museums and public galleries across all aspects of business support, but with a specific focus on marketing.
