Director of Services, Soundabout


We are looking for a new Director of Services to manage, lead, shape and develop Soundabout’s service delivery including our exciting new England-wide Little Soundabout and Soundabout Life projects for children in the early years and those ready to leave school or college. You will help to set a positive management culture in line with Soundabout’s inclusive ethos, values and mission working to ensure consistent practice across all our services. You will oversee the day-to-day administrative functions within the services including on-going monitoring and evaluation, human resources and financial management, and will also assist and deputise for the CEO where necessary.

This job would suit a proactive self-starter with experience of working or volunteering with people with severe or profound disabilities, and an understanding of how music can be used to develop skills and well-being. We are looking for the best of both worlds - a big creative picture thinker with excellent organisational skills with a strong attention to detail. Ideally you will have a good understanding of the music education landscape including the work of music education hubs and how they work with schools, as well as a knowledge of care and service provision for adults with learning disabilities.
