We’re hiring a Project Officer!

Good Vibrations changes lives through communal music-making. We work with some of the most marginalised people in the UK, in prisons, secure hospitals and in the community. Our expert team of music facilitators support participants to grow in confidence, deepen their communication and social skills, and develop more positive self-identities. They connect with their creativity and musicality, find community with others, and build a sense of hope for the future.

We are recruiting for a new Project Officer who will play a crucial role in delivering a year-round programme of activities. An overview of this role includes:

  • Project managing our work in prisons, young offender institutions, secure hospitals and the wider community
  • Managing our marketing and communications channels and materials
  • Supporting project monitoring, evaluation and the progression of past participants
  • Providing general administrative support to the organisation

You will be working from home, as is our whole team, but there will be opportunities to meet up and work together on occasion, usually in London. We would also expect you to visit projects across the UK.  This is an exciting, busy role, with room for professional development. Some travel and occasional overnight stays away from home will be required.

This is a full-time post and the salary is £25,000

Good Vibrations is a national arts organisation that changes lives through music. We work with some of the most vulnerable and hard to reach people in the UK, including in prisons, secure hospitals, and in the community. We are best known for using the Indonesian gamelan, a magnificent set of bronze gongs, xylophones and drums. We use communal music-making to support vulnerable people in challenging circumstances to develop transferable life and work skills and to forge fulfilling, constructive lives.

We have an outstanding track record, with the impact of our work evidenced through nine independent pieces of academic research, including by Cambridge University and the University of London.

Bill Bailey supports our work as a patron. We are a Registered UK Learning Provider and OCNL Qualification Centre and hold National High Secure Prison Effective Intervention Status.
