Advert for a Piano Teacher – with immediate start

Encore Enterprises, which runs Encore Music Service (formerly Herefordshire Music Service), has a well-established list of ‘Accredited Teachers’ (Approved Contractor Register) who teach instrumental and vocal lessons to pupils in the county’s LA schools, Free Schools and Academies. The list covers most instruments and voice.

Each teacher works on a self-employed basis, invoicing parents directly. An agreed hourly charge rate of £30.00 per hour (increasing to £30.60 from September 2021) is in place in order to establish consistency across all schools and providers. Lessons will be on an individual, paired and group basis.

Currently, Encore Enterprises works with nearly every school in the county and, compared with music services nationally, has higher than the average percentage of pupils learning with us.

We are currently recruiting to our ‘Accredited Teacher List’ talented musicians with the drive and skills to teach and enthuse young people and are seeking to appoint a Piano Teacher. Candidates should state any additional instruments they are able to teach to Grade 5 standard.

3.5 hours maternity cover is available starting immediately until mid-February 2022 with the potential for building up additional teaching.

A willingness to travel throughout the County will be an advantage.

The deadline for applications is 12 o’clock noon on Friday 14th May 2021. However, due to the immediate vacancy, we will consider applications upon receipt and may appoint before the closing date. Therefore, please apply as soon as you are able to. Interview dates will be arranged in liaison with candidates.

Encore Enterprises has a Safer Recruitment policy and ALL successful candidates will require an enhanced DBS check and satisfactory references.
