Friday, 1 March 2024, 4.00pm

The Royal Irish Academy of Music is a national conservatoire for music in Ireland. RIAM is an associate college of Trinity College, the University of Dublin. RIAM is undergoing a period of expansion and transformation, led by a campus re-development and curriculum reform project.

The position of Faculty Head is designed to facilitate the management of each RIAM Faculty to achieve and maintain the highest possible academic, musical and professional standards.

You will therefore be key in facilitating an excellent Wind, Brass and Percussion student and stakeholder experience across the RIAM’s four educational areas: Junior RIAM, Tertiary RIAM, RIAM Adult Division, and RIAM Exams.

You will be required to recruit and maintain home and international students as a top priority. To achieve this, working closely with the Director, you will create and facilitate a quality-focused learning environment where students can fulfil their potential by gaining relevant and adaptable knowledge and skills for both non-professional and professional music training.

You will lead and develop the RIAM Wind, Brass and Percussion Faculty strategically and manage all assigned staff in line with RIAM policy. You will also make a significant contribution to the continuous enhancement of the Faculty through staff recruitment, retention and continuing professional development, thereby ensuring its continued academic, artistic and professional relevance.

You will initiate and maintain high-level contacts within the profession and will develop and nurture links with our key potential partner organisations and individuals (private music teachers, specialist music schools, masterclass artists, industry experts etc.)

As a member of the RIAM Board of Studies, you will help drive the academic strategy of the RIAM, in particular contributing to the successful implementation of aims and objectives in the RIAM 175 Strategy (2021-2025).

You will also be expected to contribute to the management and development of the RIAM as a whole, and will be required to uphold the highest standards of governance, probity and accountability in all aspects of your role.
