sound (North East Scotland’s new music incubator) is seeking to recruit a part-time Deputy Director.

Following a staff departure and after a period of reflection, we have decided to restructure and create a new post to support our current Director. The successful candidate will essentially share a number of the Directors’ existing tasks as well as taking responsibility for certain other element(s) depending on their skill set.

The successful candidate’s professional experience will be in the arts sector, with an in-depth knowledge of the new music sector. As part of their workload will involve representing the organisation externally, they will be confident in networking and communicating with other arts organisations and musicians. They will also be able to confidently facilitate and lead meetings and composer development and/or networking sessions. Any experience of training and/or coaching would be very valuable. In addition, they should have significant experience in more than one of the following areas:

  • Talent development
  • Learning & participation / community engagement
  • Fundraising & budgeting
  • Project management
  • Strategic development
  • Artistic programming
  • Human resources
  • Policy writing

They will obviously be self-motivated and capable of taking initiative, and be a team player. They will be extremely well organised, flexible, creative, personable and with excellent project management skills, written/verbal communication skills and IT knowledge.

We aim to have the new Deputy Director in place by mid-June at the latest, and earlier if possible.

The Deputy Director is a 0.4 post and will be remunerated at £28-34K pro rata depending on experience.
