Relationship Manager, Music including Education Hubs based in Bristol office.
Salary £30,218 per annum, plus excellent benefits
Contract: Permanent, working 35 hours per week
The Arts Council invests in a diverse range of cultural activity in the South West of England including the performing and visual arts, literature, museums, library development and music education.
The South West is home to some of the country’s leading theatres, orchestras, art galleries, touring companies and festivals. It has a thriving cultural scene and is a destination for thousands of national and international visitors. Learning and participation in music are crucial to the Arts Council’s mission.
Following the publication of the National Plan for Music Education, the Arts Council is also responsible for ensuring that every child of school age has access to high-quality music education, and for investing in organisations that deliver music education and participation opportunities in and out of school. This is achieved, chiefly through investment in and work with 18 Music Education Hubs across the Area.
The role will involve managing client relationships with music education hubs in the South West, data analysis and report writing, and performance monitoring. As a Relationship Manager for the Arts Council in the South West, you will also be expected to engage with a broad range of non-music specific issues, including children and young people, diversity and equality, engagement and learning, and to be a confident communicator with a wide range of constituencies.
Candidates should be able to demonstrate an in-depth knowledge and experience of music education and be prepared to travel across an area that stretches from Cornwall to the Isle of Wight and up to Gloucestershire.
You will be expected to evidence professional arts and education experience and to demonstrate an up-to-date knowledge of the South West’s wider arts scene, arts policy and the wider national context.
Closing date: Wednesday 22 July 2015 (midnight)
