Wasps is excited to announce this opportunity to join our team, to support the delivery of our newest project – the Inverness Creative Academy.

We are looking for an experienced and enthusiastic creative practitioner, passionate about working with the community, to help us plan and deliver a varied programme of events and activities during the redevelopment.
