Penrith Conservatorium Manager

Part-time (24 hours per week, days negotiable includes regular evening and occasional weekend work)
12-month contract
$88561 (pro rata)

Penrith Conservatorium, housed within the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre, has been delivering innovative and outstanding music education since 1990. Incorporating the fledgling Penrith Youth Orchestra (a partnership with the Penrith Symphony and Australian Chamber Orchestras supported by the Crown Resorts and Packer Family Foundations), individual tuition and ensemble programs, the Conservatorium is well-established and successful with yet to be realised potential.

To that end, we are seeking a leader to spearhead the future development of the Conservatorium. With a brief to develop a three-year strategic plan incorporating new business modelling, this role calls for an experienced manager with expertise in music education, change leadership, business development and community engagement.

Working across PP&VA teams to draw synergies between the Conservatorium and music performance, presentation, education and community programs at The Joan, the Conservatorium Manager will be future-focussed whilst maintaining an agile management across current programs of activity.

Closing Date: Friday 15 December 5pm (to start before end January 2018)
