RSCM Emerging Leaders

We are looking for aspiring choral directors to join the staff teams of our summer courses for young people (27-31 July and 22-28 August).

Emerging Leaders work with other staff to deliver an inspiring, high-quality and fun choral experience for the young singers who attend, as well as growing the skills they need to be a choral leader of the future. The role includes observing and leading rehearsals and small group sessions, as well as taking a share in supervision and pastoral care.

Are you…

  • An experienced choral singer based in the UK, who aspires to be a choral leader in a professional or semi-professional environment?
  • Keen to learn and develop your skills, willing to try new things, and open to taking advice and direction?
  • Willing to work collaboratively and flexibly to deliver a high-quality, safe and enjoyable course?
  • Mature, responsible and organised and aware of the opportunities and challenges involved in working with young people?
  • In sympathy with the ethos and aims of the RSCM?

A typical day might include...

  • Directing a rehearsal for the evening service
  • A session on conducting technique with other Emerging Leaders
  • Supervising a singing lesson
  • Working with a small group of young people on theory or sight-reading
  • Organising free-time activities or co-ordinating an informal concert
