Dunedin Consort

Dunedin Consort is looking to recruit a highly motivated, creative and enthusiastic individual to join the team as its Learning & Participation Manager on a part-time basis (2.5 days per week).

This is a new role, whose creation reflects the expansion of Dunedin’s learning programme in recent years. Reporting directly to the Chief Executive, the Learning & Participation Manager will be responsible for a diverse range of activity across the breadth of the organisation’s output. It offers the opportunity both to consolidate partnerships with existing stakeholders and to forge new ones, exploring new ways in which Dunedin can extend access to its work across a diverse set of audiences. The successful candidate would be responsible for increasing engagement with Dunedin’s output in the broadest terms, from schools and education settings, to young musicians, amateur music-makers and the wider general public. As such, it offers a chance to make a real difference to the impact of Dunedin’s work both at home and abroad.
