Closing date: 11 July 2022
Interview date: 15 & 18 July 2022
 
Putting people at the heart of what we do - no matter what challenges we face is the basis of our core values: Stockport, team, ambition and respect.
These values originated from colleagues across the council and run through everything we do. Our employees are our greatest asset and we’re proud of the way we provide vital frontline services every day to our most vulnerable residents.
 
Stockport Music Service is seeking to appoint instrumental teachers of guitar/ukulele to begin work in September 2022.
 
The work will involve small group instrumental teaching and whole class ensemble teaching in schools during the day and some evening ensemble work at the music centre.  There are a mixture of hours available, with the possibility of part-time and full-time work for flexible applicants.
 
The successful applicants will be enthusiastic music educators who can work flexibly with different age ranges and schools.  You will be working with complete beginners through to students preparing for high level ABRSM and Trinity examinations so must have a good technical knowledge of the demands made on your instruments/voice and the ability to communicate this to your pupils alongside the general musical knowledge required.
 
You will be enthusiastic and self-motivated with the ability to engage young people and communicate your love of music.  Although this is a temporary contract in the first instance, there may be opportunities for further work once ended.
 
If you would like to find out more about the role please contact Craig Eastwood or Heather Barlow on 0161 483 7636 or email craig.eastwood@stockport.gov.uk for an informal discussion about the role.
 
Please note that we have made a commitment to improve the employment opportunities for people with disabilities, care leavers and ex-military personnel. As part of the Guaranteed Assessment Scheme you will therefore be guaranteed an interview if you meet the essential job role criteria.
 
The successful applicant’s appointment will be subject to satisfactory pre-employment clearances including a Disclosure and Barring Service check.
