Is diversity important for Making Music? Yes, it is!

We understand that having different voices from all sections of society in our team will help us be the best we can be and best support our diverse membership. We especially welcome applications from disabled people, people of the Global Majority or people whose socio-economic background has limited their opportunities.

How do I apply?

We are looking for the best person for this role, whatever your past opportunities, so we ask you to complete three tasks online. Your answers to these will be the only information the two staff members making a longlist will look at. FIND THE TASKS AND MORE INFORMATION HERE: https://www.makingmusic.org.uk/jobs-at-making-music

What kind of talent are you looking for?

You should be organised and have great attention to detail, comfortable working with numbers and have basic maths, and good at communicating with our members via email and on the telephone. We expect you to be familiar with frequently used software programs such as Word and Excel, but full training will be provided on financial and administrative tasks, so you do not need to have prior experience, just an interest and willingness to learn!

What is it like working for you?

This is a friendly team, and we work hard at being inclusive of everyone. Our bright and lively office is located in one of the buzziest areas of London, with excellent transport links and nice places to spend your lunchtimes or meet friends after work.
