Tweet: We are recruiting a Project Coordinator (Young People & Music) - we'd love to hear from you!



KWMC is currently looking to recruit a Project Coordinator (Young People and Music). We also have a commission for an artist residency and freelance opportunities for emerging creatives.

1. Project Coordinator (Young People and Music)

22.5 hours (3 days per week). Fixed term contract until 29th February 2020
Salary £19,604 – £23,527 per annum, pro rata, subject to experience

Join the Young People’s Programme team as our new Project Coordinator (Young People & Music).

Your new role will be focused on delivery of the Jump Studios music programme, working with participants ranging in age from 10 – 25 from across South Bristol.

Young people come to us with a variety of experiences, so you’ll need to be able to work with complete beginners, coordinating and delivering whole-class taster sessions in schools, as well as supporting more advanced creative music artists who may be interested in finding their sound and releasing music on various platforms.

If that’s not exciting enough, there’s more: each year you’ll get to coordinate a team of aspiring musicians on a residential retreat to further develop their musical talents. Your first cohort will all be young women (actively challenging the under-representation of women particularly in music tech and positions of leadership.)

There will be a few key festival performances and CPD events to coordinate throughout the year too. These will contribute to the development of the young people and those who support them.

You’ll get to be part of an excellent team of creatives who love co-designing projects, so you’ll be in great hands when you start. #dreamteam! You’ll also receive support with delivery from a range of specialist music tutors, volunteers and creative associates – a group that you’ll need to coordinate.

The Project Coordinator (Young People & Music) post will suit you if you are passionate about the development of young people, love music as well as wider media, arts and technology, believe that all young people have potential to be great at something – and you want to support them on that journey.

We are particularly keen to hear from applicants from demographics currently under-represented across the creative industries including, Black, Asian and minority ethnic groups, all women and people with disabilities.

If you have any questions about this post please get in touch with the Programme Manager (Young People) Mena Fombo or call 0117 903 0444.

Apply now!

Please read the Job Description and complete the Application Form and Monitoring Form then email your application and monitoring form to Mena Fombo.

Applications should arrive no later than 4.30pm on Thursday 8th February 2018
Interviews will be held on Friday 16th February 2018

2. Artist Commission: Living, Working, Making Together

How do artists and communities live, work and make together? How might defunct models of re-generation and ‘art-washing’ be redefined and re-imagined? What could the relationship look like between artists and communities in edge-city and suburban areas like Knowle West?

Knowle West Media Centre (KWMC) is seeking to commission three artists to explore these questions through a series of residencies in Knowle West between May to September 2018.

For more details and how to apply please read the artist brief below.

Deadline for application: midnight on Wednesday 21st February 2018.

3. Eight: Freelance opportunities for young creatives

Eight is our supported employment platform for emerging creatives and the Eight team are looking for web developers to join them on a project-by-project freelance basis.

Eight champions diversity in the creative sectors and aims to break the cycle of creatives needing work experience to get a job – and not being able to get a job because they can’t get any experience! Clients commission Eight to undertake a range of projects, including shooting videos, building websites, designing flyers and taking photographs. Recently Eight began delivering immersive workshops and providing Virtual Reality/360 video too.

As part of any commission Eight provides paid ‘on-the-job’ training for emerging creatives by partnering them with experienced professionals. Clients receive high quality work at competitive rates, while emerging creatives learn, earn and develop their portfolios.

No previous job experience is necessary to work with Eight, just a portfolio of work demonstrating your ability. Eight is currently looking for people with the following skills:

Web developers (front and back end)
Knowledge of HTML/CSS/JavaScript, UX, WordPress,
Experience working with content management systems desirable
Graphic designers  and illustrators
Experience working with Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and Adobe InDesign

If you’re aged 18+ and want to further your career in the creative industries please contact Jen or Noomi to register your interest in being part of Eight. Eight is particularly keen to hear from groups that are under-represented in the creative industries, including residents of South Bristol and BS4 postcodes, and BAME, disabled and LGBTQ creatives.
