Project Manager; NEXT
Birmingham Contemporary Music Group is one of Europe’s leading contemporary arts companies whose critically-acclaimed work includes concerts, tours, new music commissions and learning and participation programmes.
Birmingham Contemporary Music Group (BCMG) and Royal Birmingham Conservatoire have joined forces to offer a new and unique 1-year training programme for music students and professional musicians looking for a career as performers of contemporary music. The NEXT programme will train the Next Generation in Contemporary Music; the course will be collaboratively led by both organisations and supported by a Project Manager who will be the point of contact for all course participants and musicians. The Project Manager will be in close contact with staff and musicians of both BCMG and Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, and will be responsible for running the course activities both internally and externally.
We seek a highly motivated individual to fill this new full-time role within BCMG, working across departments and managing partnerships. Possessing a high level of communication skills, the successful candidate should have experience of working as a project manager (preferably in the music sector) and will have good relevant networks. Experience of working in the Higher Education sector would be an advantage. They should be able to work independently and ideally full time, but we will consider applications from candidates who would require more flexibility.
