Britten Pears Arts is a pioneering music, arts and heritage charity based on the Suffolk coast.

It is ideally suited to someone who is interested in working with diverse communities and as part of a team which is proactively taking music into those communities with the over-arching aim of using music to improve lives.

Our Community team works with families, young people, those in care homes and those in the criminal justice system. An important part of this role will be about supporting colleagues and artists, helping to build positive relationships with participants, and ensuring inclusivity for all. The role focusses on supporting our work with young people and in schools.
