GAP Music Assistants will work alongside our Graduate Music Assistants to supervise practice and assist in the running of the Music Department’s considerable concerts programme as part of the School’s wider offering of events. Applicants should be prepared to work flexible hours, approximately 44 hours per week, term time plus 2 additional weeks (35 weeks per annum).

Applications should include a short video (maximum 5 minutes) of a performance on their first instrument; this can be with or without accompaniment.

Accommodation is available. Where this is the case, a small charge (currently £120 per month) is made and this is deducted from the monthly salary.

Suitable candidates may be interviewed before the closing date and Wells Cathedral School reserves the rights to withdraw the position if an early appointment is made. Applicants are therefore encouraged to apply early.

Closing date for applications: Monday 27 February 2023, at 12 noon

Interviews are scheduled to take place the week commencing Monday 13 March 2023

Wells Cathedral School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children; applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers, and obtaining an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Services certificate. In addition, as part of the shortlisting process we will carry out an online search as part of the School’s due diligence.

All positions within the School are exempt from the provisions of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. All applicants must therefore declare all previous convictions and cautions, including those which would normally be considered "spent" except those received for an offence committed in the United Kingdom if it has been filtered in accordance with the DBS filtering rules.
