As a result of a management restructure, we are seeking to recruit a new Head of Strings to join the Leadership Team of NMPAT in September 2022.
NMPAT is a music education charity, which provides musical and artistic opportunities for the children and young people of Northamptonshire, with a £5m turnover.

We employ over 250 staff, including 13 who are permanently based at the Kettering Road Music and Arts Centre.
This important new role in our Middle Management Team will join the Heads of Woodwind, Brass, Guitar, Percussion, Keyboard and Vocal Studies to lead the instrumental teaching teams of the Trust. Working with the Directors responsible for School Based teaching, County Ensembles and Saturday Centres, they will deploy their staff to deliver the core roles of the National Plan for Music Education.
You will be an experienced instrumental teacher, with the ability to inspire, lead and manage a team of people, and lead initiatives and projects to enhance and develop your department.
