Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance £26,689- £30,183 p.a. (Including LWA) Closing date 14 November 2021
Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance is a forward thinking, contemporary and world-class Higher Education Institution with a vision to redefine the conservatoire for the 21st century. At the leading edge of music and dance training, it provides specialist education of the highest quality, which reflects the increasingly collaborative world of artistic practice and supports the lifelong career development of students and professional performing artists.

The main remit of the post is to promote the Conservatoire’s suite of Higher Education programmes, and to ensure the successful recruitment of students from the UK and other overseas markets (likely North America) to add to an already diverse and talented student body, across music and dance. You will also support work in other overseas markets across the world as required.

The post holder will further develop mutually beneficial relationships with schools and partners, whilst developing new contacts for Trinity Laban. You will identify and leverage promotional opportunities across target markets, attending targeted educational events, and hold presentations with schools and recruitment fairs. You will work closely with colleagues in Learning and Participation, Registry and Alumni Relations, to ensure that Trinity Laban recruits suitable students from diverse backgrounds, to meet our programme and instrument needs.

Educated to degree level, you will have a minimum of one year’s experience of a role in higher education or arts administration which might include part time work or internships. You will have a basic understanding of educational recruitment practices and marketing and communications skills, including use of social media. Experience and knowledge of music and/or dance and/or working in an HE environment would be desirable, alongside the ability to represent the Conservatoire internally and externally.

As an equal opportunity employer, we positively encourage applications from suitably qualified and eligible candidates regardless of sex, race, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, religion or belief, marital status, or pregnancy and maternity.

Please note all applications submitted will be shortlisted anonymously by our recruiting panel, so please ensure that your name and personal details are not included to any of your written answers, otherwise we will not be able to consider your application.
