The Regional Centre for Culture 2018 may be a secondment opportunity in production or event management, project management, producing, office management and marketing.
A secondment is the temporary movement of an employee from their home organisation to work on the Regional Centre for Culture with the mutual consent of the home organisation, the Regional Centre for Culture Producer and the employee. The opportunity identified is professional development and secure employment to return to after the secondment period is over.
Secondments can take place over short or long periods of time depending on the nature of the task and the needs of the home organisation and the seconded staff member. They are paid positions with formal job descriptions, a shortfall in salary or conditions paid by the Regional Centre for Culture program may need to be covered by the home organisation.
A mentorship is a training system under which a senior or more experienced individual (the mentor) is assigned to act as an advisor, counsellor, or guide a lesser experienced employee (mentee) through a specific task. The mentor is responsible for providing support to, and feedback on, the individual in his or her charge.
