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’re looking for a great administrator to work across our Youth Music programme and network projects, who is well organised with good analytical, verbal and written communication skills. You’ll be a team-player too, able to be a friendly first point of contact for any enquiries, to work with multiple partners and contribute to the monitoring and evaluation of our projects.
We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds, age groups and cultures. We will provide access support for people with disabilities. We can be flexible with working hours whenever feasible, and we are happy to discuss a working pattern with the post-holder.

We are a friendly and inclusive organisation. We are happy make any reasonable adjustments to the job 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.

What our funders say about NYMAZ:
“NYMAZ has been a real trailblazer, particularly for online delivery through the unprecedented times of the pandemic. It continues to support and embed musically inclusive practice both nationally and within the North Yorkshire Music Hub, putting young people at the heart of their delivery.

NYMAZ continues to be a flagship of support for both young people and for organisations. It is a great organisation to have in our portfolio.”

Michelle Myrie, Grants and Learning Officer, Youth Music.

What our beneficiaries say about NYMAZ:
“My children love the session and I’ve made friends here that I would never have met – I just don’t feel as lonely as I did before.”

“It has helped me develop my musical ability and knowledge a lot. Without it I wouldn’t be half the musician I am today.”
Project participant

“I have always regarded music and music-making as highly valuable but in our area the opportunities had not been great until this project.”
Parent of participant

“The Year 9 boys became part of a spontaneous group improvisation that developed out of a (NYMAZ) interactive concert. It was one of the most magical moments of my teaching experience. Every boy was involved in something musical and very special.”
