Minute Taker Required
Please note, deadline now extended to Thurs 23rd November
Leicester-Shire Schools Music Service (LSMS) in conjunction with the Leicester-Shire Music and Cultural Trust (LMCT) are seeking to appoint an experienced minute taker to support the innovative and exciting work undertaken by both the Executive and Steering Groups of The Leicester-Shire Education Music Hub.
The appointee will be expected to possess the skills similar to those of a clerk to governors, with exceptional accuracy for minute taking and, if you have enthusiasm and enterprise and an interest in music and education, we would like to hear from you.
The Executive Group (approx. 8-10 members) meets up to ten times per annum (term time), during the working day at venues which are usually confirmed a few weeks prior to each meeting. The meeting duration is approximately 2.5 hours. The group is formed of representatives of LSMS, LMEH (Leicester-Shire Music Education Hub) partners and schools, and provides advice on strategic planning and the delivery of major activity areas of LMEH. It meets to debate and advise on strategy, discuss and contribute to draft business planning including LMEH finances, monitor and challenge progress in all areas of activity, and to suggest innovative approaches.
The Steering Group (approx. 12-15 members) meet on three occasions per annum (term time) and meeting times vary but are usually either in the afternoon or twilight. The venue for each meeting is confirmed a few weeks prior to each meeting and the duration of the meeting is approximately 2.5 hours. This larger group, supports the work of the Executive. It enables more partners to take part in advising on the strategic and operational approaches of LMEH.
Payment will be made on a contract for services basis so you will need to be registered with HMRC as being self- employed. The rate of pay will be between £40 - £50 per meeting which includes travel to and from the meetings.

- Have access to a vehicle and be able to travel to and from meetings at various locations within Leicester City and County

Instrumental Teachers Wanted
The Leicester-Shire Music and Cultural Trust is a new charity set up to support all young people in Leicester and Leicestershire in their music making and learning, and hence everyone working to this end. We are looking to develop a pool of music tutors who would be available to be called upon as and when opportunities for work arise. The work could include covering for absent staff teaching Whole Class Instrumental lessons to school classes or teaching groups within targeted long and short term projects. Music teachers within any discipline are encouraged to apply, and we are particularly looking for teachers with experience teaching instrumental music to children in whole class settings, those from challenging circumstances (including Looked After Children) and those with Special Educational Needs.
Contracts for services for successful applicants will be available and the teaching and coaching rate will be around £30 per hour all inclusive.
If you are interested in joining this pool, please send an up to date CV with the name of two referees, together with a statement of no more than 200 words describing what you are able to offer. Candidates will need to undertake a short observation in a class setting and be interviewed. Appointments to the pool will be dependent on the relevant checking processes.
