Youth Music is seeking two highly motivated Grants & Learning Officers to join
the UK’s largest young people’s music charity and manage a diverse
grants portfolio of innovative music-making projects.

You will have a broad understanding of some or all of these key
areas; children and young people and their engagement with music,
equality diversity and inclusion, learning and participation, and
challenges currently facing third sector organisations.

Working within our Grants and Learning Team you’ll play a key role in
shaping and influencing how music education is delivered to children
and young people, ensuring that it is inclusive, accessible, high
quality and relevant.

It will involve managing a variety of relationships with Youth Music
grantholders across a set of assigned regions, helping to shape our
strategy locally and nationally, and contributing to the design of our
funding programmes and evaluation activities.

Day-to-day the role will include supporting applicants and
grantholders, making funding recommendations, analysing reports and
monitoring performance against funding agreements. Understanding of
qualitative or quantative  research in particular would be an asset to
the range of experience within the team.

As well as managing your assigned portfolio you’ll be liaising with a wide range of other stakeholders including AMIE organisations,
Arts Council Relationship Managers, ‘Bridge’ organisations, Music
Education Hubs, Local Authorities and specialists linked to our funding priorities, such as the National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance.
