Operations Manager

Tuesday, 13 October 2020, 10.00am

The Royal Academy of Music is looking for an Operations Manager to be responsible for the smooth running of the Junior Academy on a Saturday. This is a vital role within the small team responsible for the planning and delivering of all logistical arrangements required for the successful and safe running of Junior Academy.

Junior Academy offers outstanding tuition to young, talented musicians aged 4-18 on Saturdays during term time at one of the UK’s foremost music conservatoires. Junior Academy offers a unique opportunity to talented and committed young musicians from all backgrounds, who want to be inspired, challenged and encouraged in their aim to make the very best of their musical ability

You will work closely with the Director of Junior Academy and Administrator to plan all scheduling and timetables for students and staff including auditions, orchestral rehearsals, assessments, masterclasses and prizes. You will also deal with all staff, student and parent queries, including those in relation to safeguarding.

You will have a successful track record of operational experience and the ability to harness a positive working environment that encourages teamwork, energy and a solution-focused approach. It is essential that you have excellent organisational skills and the ability to prioritise and multi-task in a pressured environment. You will also have the ability to communicate effectively with Junior Academy staff, students and parents. Whilst a strong interest and empathy with music education is essential, being a trained musician is not.

The working week for this post will be 3 days per week; Friday and Saturday are compulsory during term time.

Junior Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service.

Completed applications must be received by 10am on Tuesday 13 October 2020.

Interviews are expected to be held on week commencing 19 October 2020 on Microsoft Teams.
