What is a Studio Visit/Individual Surgery?

The Studio Visit/Individual Surgery is a space for one-to-one dialogue, where the artist has the opportunity to share new work or works in progress and engage in a conversation around their work or a particular project.

It could focus on specific areas of development such as, but not limited to, feedback on works in progress or recent works, portfolio advice, exhibition-making support, budget management and navigating institutions.

We use ‘studio’ as a loose term, recognising that not all artists have a studio. For this opportunity a physical studio space is not required, the sessions can/will take place over Zoom or in person in Newcastle/Gateshead.

What to expect from the Studio Visit?

Each selected artist will participate in two sessions of one-hour each with one of BALTIC’s curators between December 2021 and March 2022. Specific dates will be agreed between the curator and the selected artist.

These Guidance Notes will help you achieve your ambition.  

Equal Opportunities Statement BALTIC is working towards achieving diversity and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.    BALTIC fully accepts and welcomes the fact that society consists of many diverse groups and individuals, and that this diversity is an asset to BALTIC.   As an arts centre dependant for its success on the full involvement of users and visitors and as an employer, BALTIC recognises that it has a moral and legal responsibility to promote equal opportunities. In addition, BALTIC recognises that the pursuit of equality of opportunity is essential for a productive and professional working environment.   This policy states BALTIC’s commitment to being an equal opportunities employer and is an integral part of every aspect of our activities. It is based on the most recent legislation and represents BALTIC’s commitment to tackling inequality, discrimination and disadvantage.   Our goal is equality of opportunity for everyone who uses, visits, works in and works for, BALTIC and we will provide services and develop employment practices accordingly.   In particular, BALTIC is committed to making sure that:   There is equality of opportunity in terms of access to BALTIC and its services, and that this reflects, and is appropriate to the needs of the diverse communities using and visiting BALTIC.   Prospective and present employees are afforded equal and fair treatment in relation to recruitment, selection, terms and conditions of employment, training and promotion.   BALTIC will work to actively combat discrimination and make sure that prospective or present employees, and those who wish to use and visit BALTIC, are not treated less favourably on the grounds of protected characteristics.   BALTIC is committed to making sure that we provide equal opportunities in employment, and that we do not unfairly discriminate against any job applicant for any reason. BALTIC, therefore:    Welcomes job applications from all sections of the community and will consider applicants for jobs on the basis of their relevant experience, qualifications, skills and abilities.   Welcomes job applications from under-represented groups - in particular, people with disabilities, and minority ethnic applicants.   Will make sure that we do not discriminate unlawfully when we decide who to employ and that selection decisions for jobs are based solely on people’s merit and ability to do the job, to enable us to appoint the best people to work for BALTIC.   Will make sure that any qualifications or conditions or requirements applied to a job are relevant and justifiable in terms of the job to be done.   Aims to create a suitably skilled workforce that includes employees who may be under-represented.   Will conduct regular monitoring data collation and analysis in order to identify and address barriers to equality of opportunity.

Completing your Application    The purpose of completing this application form is to enable you to be shortlisted for interview. Completed applications are matched against the requirements set out in the Job Profile to create a shortlist of candidates who will be invited for interview.   You should study the Job Profile carefully before completing your application form. Whether or not you are shortlisted for interview will depend on how well you can demonstrate that you meet the criteria listed in the Job Profile.   The following tips are designed to help you complete the application form as effectively as possible:   Study all the information you have been sent about the job and the application form carefully before you begin to complete the form. Ensure that you are clear about what you are being asked to do.   Make sure that your application is specific to the job you are applying for. A standard application form, which you have prepared before, may not address all of the items in the Job Profile.   BALTIC does not accept CVs in lieu of a completed application form.   Think about the extent to which you possess the experience, skills, knowledge and interests necessary to do the job. You should then provide relevant information which addresses all of the items in the Job Profile. If possible, try to do so in the order in which they are listed.   Give examples of your experience, knowledge and skills and write in a positive way. Remember to write about those things which you have personally been responsible for.   Make sure that you complete all sections of the application form.   Select those aspects of your experience, skills and interests that are relevant to the job. Remind yourself of your qualities and skills that you may take for granted.   Remember to consider relevant experience, knowledge and skills acquired outside of paid work – for example, experience gained from community or volunteer work, or in your leisure interests.   When listing your previous jobs, ensure that dates are correct and in the right order, stating your most recent employment first.   Make sure that you complete your application before the closing date.   If you have a disability which makes completing this application difficult or impossible, it is possible that the application can be completed in a different way. If you have such difficulties, please contact us.  

Shortlisting   Shortlisting will take place shortly after the closing date and is always undertaken by at least two people, one of whom will be the vacant job’s line manager. When shortlisting we are making an assessment of how closely your application meets the criteria set out in the Job Profile. We will go through your application in detail looking for specific evidence that you have the experience, knowledge and skills required to undertake the job successfully. It is unlikely that you will be selected for interview if you haven’t provided specific evidence, supported by relevant examples.  Due to the high number of applications we receive, it is not possible for us to respond to every application. If you have not received an invitation to interview within 4 weeks of the closing date, you should assume that your application has been unsuccessful on this occasion.

Interviews and Other Selection Methods   The purpose of an interview is to identify the best candidate for the job. A panel of two or three people, including the job’s line manager, will normally interview you. The length of the interview will depend on the level of the post but, on average, it will last for about 30 to 60 minutes. For most of the time the interviewers will ask you questions which relate to the requirements listed in the Job Profile. At the end of the interview, you will be given some time to ask a few questions yourself. It is advisable to have a few questions already prepared.   If you are short listed for interview, we will normally contact you by email or letter to invite you to interview. The letter will give full details of what the selection process will involve.    In addition to an interview, BALTIC may also use other methods to help choose the best candidate for the job. Common selection methods include work related tests to examine your IT, organisational, team-working or presentational skills. For certain jobs you may be asked to give a short presentation. If additional methods are to be used you will be notified in advance, when we invite you for interview.   If you have a disability and need any adjustment to be made in order for you to participate in the selection process, please contact us immediately on receipt of our letter inviting you for interview so that we can accommodate your needs.  

Offers of Employment   Offers of employment will only be made by a senior member of staff authorised to do so. All offers of employment are made subject to receipt of satisfactory references, successful completion of a probation period and where appropriate disclosure of information by the Criminal Records Bureau (Police checks). Successful candidates are normally appointed at the first point of the salary range for the job.

Recruitment Monitoring Questionnaire   Please complete the separate questionnaire to enable us to monitor the effectiveness of our recruitment policy and processes, so that we can ensure recruitment and selection are carried out fairly. The information you provide will also help us to identify any barriers to recruitment. Your answers will be treated in the strictest confidence and used for statistical monitoring purpose only. Your completed form will not be seen by those responsible for short listing and will not, therefore, form part of the selection process.  

Rehabilitation of Offenders Act, 1974   Please provide details of any unspent convictions or cautions you have under the terms of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act, 1974. Offences resulting in driving licence endorsements should be disregarded, unless holding a clean licence is a specific requirement of the job. Failure to disclose such information may result in dismissal or disciplinary action by BALTIC. This information will be treated as confidential and will not necessarily disqualify you from employment with BALTIC.  

General Data Protection Regulation, & Asylum and Immigration Act, 2018    The information that you provide as part of your application will be used in the selection process. All information about you will be securely held, with access restricted to only those involved in dealing with your application. Unless you are the successful candidate, your data will be kept for 12 months and then destroyed.   By signing and submitting your Application Form and Recruitment Monitoring Questionnaire, you are giving your consent to your data being stored and processed for the purposes of the selection process.
