£39,957 - £43,620 per annum


37 hours per week - Permanent contract

Norfolk Music Service sits within Educator Solutions, a not-for-profit trading enterprise, wholly owned by Norfolk County Council. The Music Service acts as the lead organisation for Norfolk Music Education Hub: a partnership of over 100 organisations, coming together to provide the best possible music education for the children and young people of Norfolk. Since the change in leadership of the organisation in September 2016, there has been a real appetite for increased partnership working which has created opportunities for development of the core offer and scope for expansion of the types of activities we present. The Music Service needs to continue to facilitate high quality teaching and learning and demonstrate excellent value for money whilst improving upon the breadth of offer and forging lasting relationships with schools, partners and stakeholders.

In order that the Music Service can provide the most appropriate types of musical opportunities throughout the county, it is important that we have a detailed and insightful knowledge into the area’s demographic. All of our localities have very different needs, varying engagement strategies and wide ranging musical aspirations and experiences. The Music Service have now identified the need for a locality-based approach and, as a result, need to implement a number of strategies to engage with these diverse communities. We have a large team of committed and talented Instrumental Music Teachers and as Area Manager, you will have direct responsibility of overseeing and supporting some of this team. You will play a large part in the operational running of the service as an integral member of the senior management team, Head of Music Service, 2 Area Managers and a Strategic Hub Development Manager.
