About the job

September 2022 – hours to be confirmed

Music is exceptional at Haberdashers’ and plays a crucial role in our community. It is a busy, buzzing department with 505 instrumental lessons and 45 ensembles running weekly.  

We are looking to appoint a vocal and ensemble coach to inspire singing in our school. The ideal candidate would bring immense energy, passion, and enthusiasm to the role – someone who is excited to build a culture of singing and share with us their personal connection to music.  

In addition to our excellent orchestras and chamber music, recent years have seen an incredible development in our jazz programme. We have undertaken several major recording projects that feature vocal performances – a music video of our take on the Motown classic Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, and most notably our recent Big Band recording session at Abbey Road studios.  

Whilst we keep an open mind through this recruitment process, we would be particularly interested to hear from musicians with a background in gospel/soul music – there is a great opportunity to develop singing at the school using this style as a vehicle, making use of our excellent student rhythm sections, and working closely with our exceptional jazz team. 

You may be a singer with a background in gospel music, you may have worked in pop music, or jazz – you may have worked in more traditional choral settings but have a versatile practice that can deliver across all genres – the most important aspect will be a personality that can lead our students and communicate a love of singing. 

How to apply: You can find further details and an application form on our website by clicking the apply button above, or by emailing our human resources department: staffvacancies@habsboys.org.uk. We are unable to accept CVs.

The closing date for your application is 8am on 29 June 2022.

Interviews will be held on 6 July 2022.
