September 2024
Closing Date
19th May 2024

Hertfordshire Music Service is currently seeking a woodwind teacher (clarinet/saxophone specialist) in the North (including Stevenage) and East Herts areas. Our vision is that all Hertfordshire’s children and young people, regardless of background or circumstances, have the opportunity to discover or develop their unique musical voice and express themselves through the language of music.

What will be expected from me?

The role consists of individual teaching in schools – primary and secondary (Hertford) and Saturday mornings (ensembles and individual lessons) in Stevenage. The ability to teach beginner flute would be an advantage. Travel between agreed locations will be required and therefore having your own vehicle is preferred but not essential.

Our teachers must be able to commit to deliver 33 teaching weeks over the academic year. Working hours will be agreed together with HMS. Your pay will be determined on the HMS pay scale (to be discussed on appointment). Teachers can progress up the pay scale through successful performance management.

We are proud to be a Disability Confident employer and guarantee an interview to anyone disclosing a disability whose application meets the minimum criteria for the post.
