We are looking to recruit a highly motivated, confident and enthusiastic individual to join Dunedin Consort in a job share with the current Learning & Participation Manger, on a part-time basis (2.5 days per week).
This role is a job share with the current Learning & Participation Manager, and the expansion of the role reflects the growth of Dunedin Consort’s learning and participation programme in recent years. Reporting directly to the Chief Executive, and working in collaboration with the current Learning & Participation Manager, the successful candidate will be responsible for a diverse range of activity across the breadth of the organisation’s output. It offers the opportunity both to consolidate partnerships with existing stakeholders and to forge new ones, exploring new ways in which Dunedin Consort can extend access to its work across diverse audiences.
Based primarily at the Dunedin Consort office in central Edinburgh (working from home, for now, until Covid-19 restrictions ease), the ideal candidate will have at least two years’ experience working in a comparable arts or educational role. Together, the Learning & Participation Manager job share partners will be responsible for the smooth running of Dunedin Consort’s annual schedule of learning and participation events, including a busy programme of schools workshops (which reaches over 1,000 primary school children across Scotland), the Bridging the Gap scheme for emerging professional musicians, voice and instrumental clinics for non-professional musicians, choral workshops for amateur singers and students, and a regular schedule of open rehearsals. In addition, the Learning & Participation job share partners will work together with the Chief Executive to expand the current programme and to develop a number of new initiatives and partnerships with key stakeholders both across Scotland and further afield, in connection with the ensemble’s busy touring schedule. The precise division of roles between the two job share partners will be an area for discussion and mutual agreement, and is flexible depending on the skills and strengths of the successful candidate.
Dunedin Consort is an Equal Opportunities employer. We will consider a range of flexible and part-time models, including condensed hours, days working from home, or other structures to accommodate a range of personal circumstances, and to ensure equality of opportunity between those who share a relevant protected characteristic and those who do not.
