The Royal Academy of Music is an institution of world renown, training 800 students from over 50 countries in over 20 musical disciplines and ranked first in the 2018 Guardian University rankings for music and the Good University Guide. Britain’s oldest conservatoire, established in 1822, the Academy is resolutely committed to the future and shaping contemporary musical life through the students we teach, the events we host, the recordings we produce, our research and by nurturing an engaging community that is open to everyone. Our alumni include Sir Elton John, Dame Evelyn Glennie, Annie Lennox, Michael Nyman and Sir Simon Rattle.

The Concerts Department is at the heart of all performance activity at the Royal Academy of Music. It co-ordinates a demanding schedule of around 100 orchestral/large ensemble projects and 250 concerts both within the Academy and further afield, as well as collaborating internationally with professional partners in major orchestras, festivals and venues. The Concerts & Prizes Administrator is responsible to put in to place the planning and delivery of all practical and musical aspects of chamber music concerts and all competitions within the Academy.

With a degree in music (or equivalent) and a thorough knowledge of a wide range of music and instruments, you will also have previous concert management experience gained in a similarly busy and challenging role. With a good working knowledge of MS Office applications, you will be able to work effectively under pressure with frequent and conflicting deadlines and demonstrate the ability to organise, prioritise and show a thorough attention to detail. Flexibility will be required for regular evening and weekend work as many competitions will take place in the evening and at weekends.

Completed applications must be received by 10am on Monday 8 November 2021.

Interviews are expected to take place on-site on 17 or 19 November 2021.

The Academy is committed to promoting the welfare and safeguarding of all students.
The Academy values diversity and welcomes your application.
