Job Description here

We are looking to appoint a Graduate Music Assistant/Organ Scholar for September 2018 to work both with the Choirs of Croydon Minster and act as Music Assistants at one of the country’s leading independent schools.

This is an exciting post which will bring together a unique dual role of participating in the musical life of Croydon Minster and supporting the music curriculum and performances at the School. Dependent upon subject knowledge, aptitude and experience, there is also the possibility of successful applicants teaching within the Music Department or contributing to the work of other academic departments and/or the broader co-curricular life of the School. This additional opportunity will be discussed with applicants at interview.

The salary for this post will be £16,380.00 per annum or £9.75 per hour (pro rata salary for term time - 41 weeks + 1 week and inclusive of 5 weeks’ holiday pay entitlement). An additional enhancement will apply if a part-time teaching timetable and related teaching responsibilities are undertaken or for contributing to the work of other academic departments (dependent on experience, qualifications and the number of teaching sessions agreed). This will also apply if applicants contribute to the broader co-curricular life of the School. School accommodation may be available, particularly if boarding responsibilities are undertaken. Salaries are reviewed annually on 1 September.

We welcome applications from all parts of our community as we aspire to attract staff that matches the social and cultural diversity of our student intake.
