Role: Head of Junior RIAM

Place of Work: 36-38 Westland Row, Dublin 2

The RIAM, as a national conservatoire for music in Ireland, is embarking on one of the most transformational phases in its 170 year history. We are in the midst of the major re-development of our premises on Westland Row, a fully funded project which is set to complete in September 2021.

 Accompanying this infrastructural change is the re-structuring of RIAM’s teaching and assessment divisions (a tertiary division, Junior Academy and national music examination system), to enable the expansion of RIAM in the coming years.

We are poised to create Ireland’s leading centre for music education, training and performance. We aim to nurture excellence, build audiences, advocate for increased access to music participation, and amplify the impact of our work by forging powerful links between young people, emerging and established professional artists, diverse audiences and society at large.

The first key appointment to be made is a Head of Junior RIAM, with overall responsibility for the current student body of 1,500 school age students, who attend music lessons at RIAM across weekday afternoons and on Saturdays. RIAM are recruiting the above new post to lead the Junior RIAM and provide artistic and educational leadership that enhances the RIAM’s reputation nationally and internationally.

This is a five year fixed term contract. Salary will commence at point 1 of the Lecturer Scale - €56,680pa/€51,116pa (new entrant rate). For full particulars of this exciting new position please refer to the job description.
