Applications are invited for the freelance post of 
Project Manager – Jazz Promoter Trainee Scheme
Fee £8,750 for approximately 50 days’ work.

Northern Jazz Promoters are looking for a dynamic, organised and collaborative arts manager to lead the delivery of a workforce development project built around the skills development of new and experienced jazz promoters in the north of England. This is an amazing opportunity to work with a variety of key individuals and organisations across the northern jazz sector to create new training opportunities, help develop the careers of the next generation of promoters and ensure the sustainability of the sector in the longer term.

With funds secured and a delivery plan in place, you will be responsible for putting the plans into action and overseeing all elements of the project.

We’re looking for a great communicator, with experience of managing partnership projects across multiple organisations. More than anything you should have a love for music (in all of its forms), be passionate about the transformational power of the arts and culture on the lives of people and be able to advocate for this both in person and through digital channels.

The post will be directly contracted to Northern Jazz Promoters, supported by Jazz North. 

This post is funded by the National Lottery through Arts Council England’s National Project Grants.
