This pioneering programme drew its initial inspiration from El Sistema in Venezuela and our vision is to transform lives with music. We deliver on our vision through the creation of Big Noise programmes within communities.
Since its inception in 2007, the programme has grown and developed into a multi - faceted and immersive music education and social development programme which uses the orchestra as a learning community. We currently run programmes in Raploch (Stirling), Govanhill (Glasgow), Torry (Aberdeen) and Douglas (Dundee).
We are ambitious for the children we work with, and we are looking for someone who can match that ambition with experience, drive and commitment.
This is a part time post, working 28 hours per week. Hours of work will be agreed with your line manager.

Sistema Scotland is seeking to employ an experienced, motivated, and skilled person to support the children and musicians at our Big Noise after-school orchestra programme in Govanhill. The hours of work will be:
Monday 2.50 pm - 5.00 or 6.00 pm
Tuesday to Thursday - 2.50 pm to 6.00 pm
Big Noise uses the orchestra and music making as a model for learning. The after school programme runs 4 days a week during term time and a holiday school during Easter, summer and October breaks.
The children take part in a variety of classes and your job is to support them in these sessions, helping them engage and concentrate and participate as fully as they can. You will build strong relationships with the musicians who run the sessions and with children and their families to help them fulfil their potential at Big Noise.
