Established in Manchester since 1995, FutureEverything is a non-profit creative media organisation who initiate, curate and deliver critical artistic projects – in Greater Manchester, the UK and internationally – exploring digital culture and the impact of technology in society and culture.
Through a curated programme of events, art commissions, critical conversations, collaborative projects and prototyping, FutureEverything pushes creative boundaries and stimulates new ways of thinking, across a diverse range of sectors, disciplines and audiences. Taking an action-research, artist-led and human-centred approach, FutureEverything is passionate about bringing people together to discover, share and experience new ideas for the future, creating opportunities to question and reflect on the world around us.

Resilience and Response to Covid-19, and Role Purpose
Over the past few months, and as the world began navigating its way through the current pandemic crisis, FutureEverything focused on the need to reflect on their work and evaluate their role as an arts organisation. This period – after internal/external conversations, exchanges with artistic communities, colleagues and audiences, and more importantly after rescoping and redesigning programmes in response to the pandemic – has confirmed the agility and resilience of the organisation, placing it in a favourable position and positive trajectory for the future.
Organisational strengths, with emphasis on open, collaborative, research and artist-led approach, have played an important role in this response and proved to be valuable methodologies in resisting the crisis and moving to the next phase.
As we progress through an exciting period of growth, we are looking for a dynamic, experienced Finance Manager who will be responsible for successfully managing the company accounts, bookkeeping and overviewing admin tasks. The Finance Manager will play a key role in supporting the team and working with our stakeholders and funders, ranging from commercial organisations to government. They will contribute to ensuring we remain responsive and flexible to a rapidly changing environment, supporting us in securing future resources and opportunities from a variety of sources for our future resilience.
Considering the current restrictions, the role will mainly involve remote working, and from our central Manchester office at a later date. Full details on the role can be found below.
