Are you passionate about:

- developing and supporting the workforce of professional musicians;
- advocating for the benefits of live music on learning, development, health, and wellbeing?
Live Music Now Cymru works with 73 musicians to deliver over 300 music events and residencies annually in all 22 counties in Wales. We bring live music and creative health opportunities to those who may not otherwise be able to experience them. Our work extends to special and mainstream schools, Music Education Hubs, care homes, hospitals and other community settings. We achieve this through such successful projects and programmes such as; Live Music in Care, Inspire, and Lullaby.
You’ll be managing the planning and delivery of music programmes for children in education, social care, health and community settings across Wales. This post holder will build relationships with and organise personal development training and support for our nationally based professional musicians. You’ll identify and secure project funding for music and health projects across Wales that fit with Live Music Now’s strategic goals, and Wellbeing of Future Generation Act goals.
This is an exciting time to join Live Music Now Cymru, and this role comes with extension opportunities as well as promotion and personal development opportunities within Live Music Now Cymru when performance is proven (funding dependent).
We are looking for someone with demonstrable, successful, end to end project management skills, with a deep understanding of the positive and far-reaching effects of music as a tool for social and health impacts in a Wales wide context. Recruiting manager, Jen Abell (contact details on job description), welcomes contact and questions from applicants ahead of submission.
