Full time (35 hours), fixed term to September 2018, Salary £17,000 pro-rata

The Britten-Pears Young Artist Programme was founded over 45 years ago by Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears and provides high-level performance training for the world’s best emerging professional musicians. Our Residencies and Open Space schemes offer a unique opportunity for artists at all stages of their career to develop their skills, take risks, experiment and recharge their creative batteries in the wonderful setting of Snape Maltings.

This role will assist with the delivery of all artist development projects and is a fantastic opportunity for a Music graduate to gain valuable arts administration experience. You will need to have excellent organisation and communication skills and keen eye for detail.  You must have a full driver’s licence and be able to work additional hours, including weekends, when courses are in residence. If project commitments allow we envisage that time can also be spent with other departments at Snape Maltings for an even more rounded first or second experience of an arts administration role.
