About the job

We are looking for an enthusiastic and talented musician to support the delivery of the co-curricular and academic activities of our busy Music Department. Our Graduate Music Assistant is an important person in Eltham’s musical provision, and they will have the opportunity to be a key part of a Music Department with over 50 ensembles rehearsing every week, c60 concerts/events every year, and two thirds of all pupils learning at least one instrument. 

Eltham College has always had a strong musical reputation, with a large number of our pupils attending junior conservatoires in London, and a number of leavers heading on to academic music or instrumental study at university/conservatoire. Our Symphony Orchestra performs in three large-scale external concerts every year, performing full symphonic repertoire; this year’s programmes include Beethoven’s 5th Symphony and Vaughan Williams’ The Lark Ascending, performed alongside Lili Boulanger’s Vielle Prière Bouddhique and Cecilia McDowall’s Stabat Mater with the school’s Choral Society at Blackheath Halls. Our choirs perform regular evensongs both in the school Chapel and at cathedrals throughout the UK, and two of our choirs will be performing in Prom Praise at the Royal Albert Hall in May. Our scholars attend regular trips to concerts and conservatoires in London, and all of our major internal and external concerts are professionally recorded and filmed.

A highly competitive salary is available, together with a clear programme of staff development and opportunities for promotion. The role comes with accommodation.
