Arts Administration Traineeship

Deadline: 21 May 2021


We are looking for an Arts Administration trainee to support the administration and management of Red Note’s community-based music-and-drama project in Easterhouse for the period June 2021 – May 2022.

This is a part-time, 12-month trainee position for a member of the Easterhouse community. Supported by the Red Note production team and using the appointee’s knowledge of their own community to support the project, this position will focus on the successful candidate working with Red Note Ensemble to deliver this community-based music-and-drama project, whilst receiving training and gaining valuable skills and experience in administering youth music activities.

The job will include using their local knowledge to build relationships with diverse community groups across Easterhouse on behalf of the project, liaising with artists and venues, arranging artist travel and accommodation, providing organisational support at workshops and performances, assisting with stage management, and gathering audience and other data.

The successful candidate will have the support and assistance of Red Note colleagues, although candidates who show initiative and pro-activity will be preferred. This post may therefore suit a local person who is looking to gain experience of work within the field of arts administration.

The successful candidate will be trained and supported in this role by the Administrator, General Manager and Director of AEP of Red Note Ensemble. Additional training relevant to the role will be provided.

Period of contract: 12 months, starting between 22nd and 28th June 2021 depending on availability
