Marketing Lancashire is looking to appoint an exceptional Bid Director to lead Lancashire’s bid for UK City of Culture in 2025.

Lancashire’s cultural story is one that celebrates our unique heritage, is immersed in our diversity and inspires our vision for the future. Following six months of scoping work and stakeholder engagement, Lancashire has decided to bid at a county wide level, where we have the scale and capacity to take the impact of the award to the next level, incorporating rural communities, towns and cities, as well as exploding what is meant by the term ‘culture’.

This is an exciting opportunity to drive forward the development of Lancashire’s bid. You will need to engage stakeholders across the public, private and cultural sector, and bring together the vision in a compelling narrative. You will need to win hearts and minds and translate the vision for the bid into delivery on the ground. You must fundamentally believe in the power of culture to deliver prosperity and have the desire and ability to leave a lasting legacy. But most of all, you must have a passion for Lancashire.

This is your chance to be part of a transformational project. This is not just a game-changer for Lancashire. This is a whole new pitch.
