City Music Foundation, a charity offering career development and management to emerging professional musicians (mostly classical, some jazz), is seeking a part time General Assistant to start immediately for a fixed term appointment in the first instance.
We are looking for someone educated to at least degree level with a real knowledge of and passion for classical music (and jazz, if possible), and an ability to research and write well about music, for instance for programme notes or CD liners. The post-holder will be involved in all aspects of the two-year CMF Artist Programme, supporting the Director, the Artist Manager and the Communications and Events Officer.
Excellent research and writing skills are essential, and accurate proofreading, as well as familiarity with Microsoft Word and Excel, and Canva if possible. Experience of posting on Word Press websites would be an advantage. The appointee will need to be available to attend events which already have scheduled dates, including evenings. Communication is central to the role, face-to-face, by telephone and email, and the post-holder will need to be confident and effective in these skills. The work will be independent, but supervised by the CMF team. Accuracy and attention to detail is a key requirement.
We are looking for someone to start as soon as possible and to work 16 to 20 hours a week in the first instance. This is a fixed term post for three months and would suit someone pursuing a career in classical music.
To apply email Dr Clare Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org with a CV and covering letter.
