Ulster Orchestra £29,000 per annum Closing date 25 March 2022
We are excited to be recruiting for a Tutti Violin player to join our 2nd Violin section.

You will be an excellent violinist with orchestral playing ability at a professional level and a commitment to delivering a high standard of work at all times.

Ideally you will have experience of performing in symphony orchestras. However, we are committed to developing new talent and will also consider candidates who are in the early stages of their career and can clearly show potential to fulfil the role.

In addition to orchestral work, you will have the opportunity to be involved in a range of non-platform activities, including diverse Learning and Community Engagement activities and chamber music playing, as well as creating and leading your own non-orchestral activity.

In return you will receive a competitive salary along with a range of benefits including pension, a health cash plan & generous annual leave provision.

Comprising of 63 internationally respected musicians the Ulster Orchestra is one of Northern Ireland’s most cherished and valuable cultural assets. We have continuously attracted some of the best musicians the industry has to offer, including the world-renowned Daniele Rustioni, our Chief Conductor since 2019. This array of talent affords the ability to create an inspiring year-round programme of symphonic events, chamber music, broadcast concerts for BBC Radio 3 and BBC Radio Ulster, and a Pops programme performed in Northern Ireland and further afield.

If this sounds like an Orchestra you would like to be part of, we would love to hear from you. Further information on the job requirements, application and selection process can be found in the recruitment pack on our careers page, along with benefits of working for the Orchestra.

Please note that applications for this post must be made via the Musical Chairs website; the closing date for applications is Friday 25th March and applications received after this date cannot be considered.

The Ulster Orchestra is committed to striving to be truly representative of all aspects of diversity and to offer a fully inclusive working environment. We are committed to equality of opportunity and welcome applications from all suitably qualified candidates, irrespective of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation. The appointment will be made on merit with openness and transparency of process.
