We are recruiting a new part-time person who we are calling a Music Assistant and this person will be based in the office on a 18 hours per week basis with initial stating rate of £13ph (to be reviewed after 4 months). We need someone who is bright and enthusiastic and someone who understands what we do and why we do it.
The role is varied and will involve supporting both Emma and Cheryl in day to day contact with session leaders, helping to organise the sessions, helping to organise new sessions in response to requests to our many age support partners, organising publicity such as flyers, assisting with our publicity and communication as we tell more people about Goldies and how they can take part. Monitoring attendance at the sessions and reporting back to the Trustees of the Charity and, on occasions, ‘stepping in’ when a session leader is unavailable and taking one of the 60 minutes Sing&Smile Goldies sessions.
Our sessions are beginning a new journey, singing from screens in place of songbooks and that is one of the many other tasks – monitoring how this programme is going – as well as helping to organise special BIG SING events where we bring together lots of Goldies sessions under one roof to bring more Songs&Smiles to more people. You will also need to be confident using Microsoft Office and Social Media.
Ours is a small office which is shared by the team who work for Grenville Music, that’s Grenville’s music business which runs many choirs across the West of England. Grenville of course is the founder of the Goldies Charity and has appeared on radio and television across the World, wearing his choir hat and Goldies hat. It is important to note however that the Goldies Charity is NOT involved with choir singing, it is about social singalongs that give isolated folk a reason to get out, be with others and have fun through the popular melodies of 50s onwards.
You will have to be a car driver as there will be some occasions when you will need to travel and we will pay 40p per mile. This is a freelance post, paid monthly, for 24 months. This position is kindly sponsored by a Charitable Trust so through their support we have been able to recruit and offer this new post.
Please email email@example.com with any questions.
More details can be found on the Goldies website.
