Music Director (Sabbatical Cover)
Beating Time (a charity running weekly singing groups in prisons (www.beatingtime.org)) is looking for a committed and versatile musical director to cover our well-established group in HMP Maidstone between 8 January and 25 March 2020. Weekly rehearsals take place on Wednesday afternoons - 2.00-4.00pm. Our groups are non-auditioning and the key is to build self-confidence, well-being and a community, as well as musicality. HMP Maidstone is a men’s, foreign nationals prison so most are expecting to be deported and the range of languages spoken and experience is immense. We are looking to appoint someone who will be excited about working with a diverse group of men and who can appreciate the challenges they face and who values what they can offer. The successful candidate will need to complete security clearance to work in the prison sector (if not already obtained) and will be trained by the establishment to carry keys and a radio.
