We're recruiting freelance assessors

We are building our team of freelance assessors.

Assessors play a key support role in Youth Music’s grant-making. They provide an objective assessment about the funding applications we receive, which helps us make decisions.

We want to engage people who have experience planning, delivering or taking part in projects like the ones that Youth Music funds; or who have first-hand experience of working in the music industries.
The deadline for applications is: Sunday 31 January 2021
