This role is key to the successful functioning of the organisation’s day-to-day activities, with an emphasis on production, project planning and logistics. You may not yet have experience in the classical music sector, and we are open to candidates who can demonstrate administrative skills in other areas, but above all you should demonstrate an eagerness to learn the details and nuances that define what we do. The position would suit someone with experience in project planning, and experience in the performing arts would be an advantage. The successful candidate will need to demonstrate an ability to coordinate complex projects, have an exceptional eye for detail, and be adept at forming strong interpersonal relationships.

Our concert and learning and participation programmes having expanded significantly in recent years, so this is an ideal post for someone who wants to help make a real difference to our trajectory as the company grows and develops.
