We are looking to appoint two Graduate Music Assistants/Choral Scholars for a fixed term contract from September 2023 - July 2024 to work both with the Choirs of Croydon Minster and act as Music Assistants at one of the country’s leading independent schools.
These are exciting posts 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 assisting with the teaching, and every-day running of the Music Department, or contributing to the work of other academic departments and/or the broader co-curricular life of the School. Additional responsibilities, and the possibilities of further professional development, will be discussed with applicants at interview.
The salary for this post will be £24,081 per annum (full-time, full year). The salary will be pro rata to term time only and the term of the contract, which equates to £19,264.80 (based on 41 weeks and inclusive of the 5.6 weeks holiday pay entitlement). An additional enhancement may be possible, dependent on what the successful candidate brings to the role. 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.
