As part of their development of Big Noise, Douglas, Sistema Scotland is looking for a new Team Leader Musician to set up and deliver the programme in Dundee.
The new Team Leader Musician will be responsible for all community engagement which includes working with the head teachers in Claypotts Castle and St Pius Primary schools, with the families and children who will attend the programme, as well as liaison with the wider community in Douglas and across Dundee. They will lead a team of musicians specifically recruited to work on Big Noise Douglas and they will also work with the two key partners - Dundee City Council and Optimistic Sound.
Sistema Scotland works to create permanent social change in some of the most deprived communities in Scotland. They use participation in the Big Noise orchestra programmes to change lives by fostering confidence, discipline, teamwork, pride and aspiration in the children and young people taking part. Big Noise Douglas will be the fourth Big Noise programme in Scotland; the others are in Raploch in Stirling, Govanhill in Glasgow and Torry in Aberdeen.
Nicola Killean, CEO, Sistema Scotland, said: "We are hugely excited to be recruiting for this key member of staff. As well as working with the community, they will be recruiting the Big Noise team of musicians, developing training and planning the schedule for the implementation of the programme, which will start to work with the children in September 2017. This is a challenging, but very rewarding job for the right person, and they will have the full support of the whole Sistema Scotland team and other Big Noise Centres behind them. We are looking for an inspirational and visionary musician to help Sistema Scotland deliver the Big Noise programme in Douglas."
