Wysing Arts Centre, on the outskirts of the village of Bourn in Cambridgeshire, hosts a diverse range of artists from across the world who relocate to our rural site; from a short weekend visit through to staying over a period of months. This may include groups of up to ten artists alongside individuals. We provide accommodation, studio space and funding so that artists can work from Wysing to develop their practices, ideas and projects. Our five bedroomed, 17th century farmhouse, Wysing Grange, is at the heart of the site. Wysing Grange is also rented out commercially.


We are looking for a Housekeeper/Caretaker to look after the farmhouse; to ensure it is kept to a high standard of cleanliness, and to provide a hosting role in caring for artists during their time at Wysing. The role is responsible for cleaning, making beds and laundry, and for providing a warm welcome to artists and the public staying in the house.

The role also supports the Site and Technical Manager to ensure the farmhouse and wider site is well maintained and safe for artists and visitors to enjoy.
