Are you dedicated to making music happen for all children and young people?
NYMAZ is seeking a dynamic and motivated Administrator to support the coordination of our music and workforce development activities during an exciting period of growth for the organisation.
We are a youth music charity, championing the transformative potential of music for children and young people in North Yorkshire and across rural England. Working with our trusted partners, we deliver high quality music-making activities to those in challenging circumstances, especially those experiencing rural isolation.
We are also committed to strengthening the sector through workforce development, building strategic partnerships and advocating for the benefits of participatory music, and we have become a leading voice across the sector on the issues of rural isolation and digital music education. We are actively developing youth voice to empower young people to make decisions about the offer we provide. NYMAZ Board of Trustees currently has two young trustees, and we have an Ambassadors team who take an active role in programming a variety of NYMAZ events.
As one of fourteen strategic partners of Youth Music that form the founding members of the Alliance for a Musically Inclusive England, NYMAZ is delivering targeted music activities and workforce development to create accessible experiences, where every child can access music-making opportunities, regardless of their circumstances. We are also supporting Music Education Hubs nationally to roll out innovative approaches to increasing access to music through digital technology, via the Connect: Resound project.
We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds, age groups and cultures. We will provide access support for people with disabilities and be flexible with working hours when feasible. We are an inclusive organisation and can make reasonable adjustments to application processes and interviews on a case-by-case basis. We also provide ongoing support for the individuals we work with, so if you have particular accessibility needs, please do get in touch and let us know.
Contract: 0.6 FTE (3 days a week).
