Association of British Orchestras

Director of Engagement

National Youth Orchestras of Scotland £40-£45k Closing date 16 September 2022
The National Youth Orchestras of Scotland (NYOS) is seeking to appoint a Director of Engagement. This is a new role designed to help embed inclusive practice at the heart of our work and to broaden and diversify our membership and programme, creating positive, sustainable, inclusive opportunities for a wide range of young musicians to play their part in the NYOS community and to thrive through group music-making. The Director of Engagement will be key to supporting NYOS through a period of development and will contribute to the development and implementation of a new five-year strategic plan.

You will be a confident, forward-thinking leader with experience of producing and evaluating creative programmes. You will be passionate about creating spaces for young people to thrive, comfortable with reflective practice, and keen to learn as we develop new ways of working. As a team player you will have a track record of collaborative partnership working and enthusiasm for and commitment to youth music of all cultures.

NYOS is committed to finding the very best candidate for this role and to growing the diversity of the organisation. We particularly encourage applications from people with disabilities, LGBTQI+, Black, Asian and other global majority backgrounds, care leavers, and those residing in an area of social and economic deprivation as measured by postcode on the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivations (SIMD).
