Operations Assistant (part-time*)

Tenebrae £27,000 - £30,000 pro rata, dependent on experience Closing date 06 February 2023
Tenebrae is one of the world’s leading vocal ensembles, renowned for its core values of passion and precision. Founded in 2001 by director Nigel Short, the choir performs around 60 concerts each year across the UK, Europe, the US and further afield, including at some of the world’s most prestigious concert venues and festivals. Alongside its busy concert and recording schedule, the ensemble delivers a rapidly growing Learning & Connection programme, working with hundreds of children, young people and amateur singers each year.

We are now seeking an Operations Assistant to join us for 3 days per week on a flexible basis*, supporting the existing team as we continue to grow our activity. The successful candidate will be highly organised, efficient, and willing to assist with a broad range of tasks. They will have strong people skills and be able to communicate diplomatically with a range of people at all levels. Working closely with the General Manager, they will help to ensure the efficient running of Tenebrae’s practical operations, and from time to time might also provide assistance to the Concerts Manager and Development Manager. Some experience in the arts would be preferable but is not essential.

*At present we are also recruiting for a part-time Learning & Connection Producer to join our team for 2 days per week. A full job description is available via our website. We would be happy to consider combining these two roles to create one full-time position which would provide a broad range of experience across administration and production.
