Freelance Youth Voice Engagement Worker

  • Application deadline: Monday 29 March 2021
  • Interviews: Tuesday 13 April 2021 (Online)

Fancy joining our award winning team?

SoundStorm, lead partner of the Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Music Education Hub, is looking to recruit a Youth Voice Engagement Worker to help make our music hub more inclusive, by engaging, listening to, and responding to the voices of under-represented young people: and help them shape and lead the music-making opportunities available to them.

This is part of a wider piece of work by the South West Coast Music Hub Alliance, alongside the Hubs in Southampton, Isle of Wight, Portsmouth and Dorset, funded by Youth Music.

The post is freelance over 16 months, primarily term time, though with occasional school holiday work possible. The successful candidate will need to be able to work on the project on a regular basis in term time, approximately half a day per week, starting as soon as possible. The fee available is a minimum of £60 per session (half day), negotiable dependent on experience. Access to a car for business use is essential, for travel within the BCP area. Living within commuting distance of BCP, and knowledge of the area, is a distinct advantage.

If you would like an informal chat about the post, please email Sarah Derwish at to arrange a time.

Applications, by CV and covering letter (2 pages of A4 max) should be received no later than 23:59 on Monday 29 March 2021.

Online interviews will take place on Tuesday 13 April 2021.
