Awards for Young Musicians (AYM) was founded in 1998. We support musically talented young people from low income families to overcome the financial and social barriers they face to fulfilling their potential. We help them pursue their ambitions to excel in making music and strategically target our resources to give them the best possible chance to flourish and grow. We work across the UK and across genres of music. Our four programme areas are:

Identifying Talent: training teachers in how to spot young people’s musical potential

Furthering Talent: targeting and sustaining young people’s emerging talent through strategic support

Awards: funding young talent UK-wide through annual grants and tailor-made help for individuals

Innovation and Research: leading new thinking and action on talent development

Furthering Talent aims to effect significant change in how the musical potential of young people from low income families is identified and supported. The programme is core to AYM’s mission to give talent a chance and enable disadvantaged children to have a musical life they’d otherwise not have.

We are looking for someone who is passionate about increasing access to music making for disadvantaged young people and committed to helping them overcome the barriers they face to fulfilling their musical potential. You will be a self-starter, able to work highly effectively, whether from your home office, on the move across England, or with colleagues across our motivated and collegiate AYM team. You will be adept at managing multiple priorities and enjoy interacting with a broad range of people. This is an exciting and evolving programme and you’ll be key to its future development and impact.
