Creative Scotland announces new management structure
- Janet Archer explains the changes taking place at Creative Scotland. Ian Munro appointed Deputy CEO, five director posts being filled
Janet Archer (photo), the recently appointed Chief Executive Officer of Creative Scotland, has announced the first steps towards a new management structure for the organisation. Ian Munro has been appointed Deputy Chief Executive, Caroline Parkinson is the Director of Creative Industries, Kenneth Fowler is Director of Communications and Karen Lannigan is Director of Human Resources. Creative Scotland will begin recruiting for the posts of Director of Arts and Engagement, Director of Film and Media, Director of Strategy (12 month post), Director of Funding Operations and Director of Finance.
There will be no increase in the overall salary budget, which will be part of the existing operational budget. The funding programmes are in the process of being simplified.
Archer said, “I want to build up a better knowledge bank of expertise within the areas we serve - the arts, screen and creative industries and make better use of the overview we hold, for the benefit of everyone working in these fields. We don’t plan to lose our commitment to working flexibly and holding a broad perspective. Many staff enjoy working across a number of disciplines alongside their core specialism, and have developed a breadth of knowledge and skills through this approach. We will ensure however that in the future we will feed relevant expertise into advice, decision making, and feedback, because we know that’s what is valued.”
“I would like to emphasise that these changes are just the first step,” Archer added.
