The Creative Enterprise Coordinator will support participants to access progression routes into professional opportunities, education, employment and training and music industry-specific mentoring.
Deadline: 11th November 2020
Raw Material, a Brixton-based creative music and media centre for young people and adults, are working with Brixton youth music charity School Ground Sounds (SGS) to find an enthusiastic Creative Enterprise Coordinator to support young people and adults from their vibrant and diverse programme of creative activities in South London to connect to further professional and creative opportunities.
Raw Material’s base in Brixton houses recording studios, a band rehearsal space, a production suite and DJ booths, and our work takes place here as well as in the community: in hospitals, in museums, with voluntary and community organisations, in schools and colleges, and beyond.
Raw Sounds works with people accessing mental health services, providing music training and creative and pastoral support. SGS aims to transform the lives of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds through music. Their programme is aimed at 11-24 year-olds from South London, offering a range of projects including an after-school programme; one-to-one mentoring; From Scratch (album-recording for young people in contact with the youth justice system) and The Grit School – a 7-week music industry course.
The Creative Enterprise Coordinator will support both organisations by finding, sharing and supporting participants to access progression routes into professional opportunities, education, employment and training and music industry-specific mentoring. Maybe this is your first job in the industry, or maybe you are a youth worker or music facilitator who is seeking the next step in their career. You’ll need excellent communication and interpersonal skills, a positive attitude, and a knack for finding and creating exciting creative opportunities. Raw Material want to work with somebody who is highly motivated, who is a keen advocate for young people, mental health, and the transformational power of music and creativity.
Applications are particularly welcome from people who represent the cultural diversity of the Brixton area, know and understand the locality, and/or those who have lived experience of mental ill health.
