Woodwind Teacher Vacancy for September 2021

Woodwind Teacher Vacancy for September 2021

Required from September 2021 if availability allows (or as soon after as possible):

A woodwind teacher to join the successful Musica Kirklees team and work within South Kirklees (predominantly the Holme Valley area). There are currently approximately 10 hours of work available per week, made up of woodwind teaching in schools, delivery of woodwind-based Whole Class Ensemble Tuition (WCET) and ensemble directing at Musica Holme Valley (one of our Saturday morning music centres). For the first three months of employment, there will be a one-off opportunity to increase these hours through paid pupil recruitment time of up to 5 hours per week. This would hopefully lead to additional small group/individual lessons and WCET.

The successful candidate must have a passion for widening access to music for all children from all backgrounds; a proven track record of excellence; a vision for inspiring more young people to learn to play an instrument and the ability to motivate young people to achieve their potential. You must be able to teach across the woodwind family.

A full driving licence and/or access to transport is preferential for this role, however if an applicant does not hold a driving licence due to a disability but is otherwise suitable for the role, Musica Kirklees is committed to making reasonable adjustments to the timetable and your application will still be considered.

The position will be hourly paid £25.08 per contact hour (plus teachers’ pension)

Application forms are available from Niki Matthews (PA to the Principal), Musica Kirklees, 9 Beast Market, Huddersfield, HD1 1QF.


Closing date for applications – Friday 16th July at 1pm

Provisional Interview dates – interviews will take place during the following week (w/c 19th July 2021)
