Dundee City Pipe Band and Youth Music Initiative is a social enterprise which involves a diverse group of people in making Scottish traditional music.

We are “inclusive” in the sense that our members range widely in age, ability and disability, and this makes us unique in the piping world.

Our traditional pipe & drums have developed to the point where we can perform confidently in public, accept paying engagements and offer our services to schools. We have not yet developed our Youth Music Initiative, which would combine traditional and modern ways of making music, including the use of electronic instruments and digital audio workstations.

The Adapt & Thrive Fund has made it possible for us to employ a Development Officer whose role is to help us increase our income and sustain the business into the future through fundraising, grant applications and social enterprise activities. This is a one year contract which may be extended if funds allow.

This post will be home based but the postholder will be required to attend meetings, rehearsals and performances as necessary.
