Job Post for Vocal Coach & Mentor Job

Updated: Apr 12, 2023


We are looking for someone to join us for our music studio project we run for young people in care based in Redbridge.


What we do


Every Friday from 4:30pm to 7:30pm we run a music studio project where young people get to learn how to create music in a recording studio environment. The idea of our sessions is that young people get to use the studio and creation of music as a form of therapy.


Our sessions are very fun, though can be highly involving as we work with young people who often go through a range of complex needs such as

  • death of parent

  • at risk or involved in gangs,

  • victim of sexual abuse


That being said as a group we are really able to engage these young people, where the sessions end up being extremely fun, as while we talk with the young people about their issues, we also engage them in fun music creating, where we also bring in other professional recording artists.


Who we are looking for


Our ideal candidate will have a


  • Track record of working with young people who have complex issues that often have social services involved.

  • Able to complete detailed weekly reporting on young people

  • Able to communicate with our partners if any issues of concern come up for young people

  • Woman who has a background in music, preferably in teaching singing


Benefits


  • The hourly pay for is £15 per hour for 5 hours

  • Monthly reflective team sessions with an Educational Psychologist as a form of staff therapy

  • Working in a fast growing company with lots of exciting developments consistently happening

  • Get to be part of our Red Light Busking exhibitions


If you like the idea of joining us please send a CV and your answers to the following questions to info@redlightbusking.com


  1. What inspired you to pursue a career in music and what are some of your biggest musical accomplishments?

  2. Can you tell us about a time when you faced a challenge while working with young people, and how you overcame it?

  3. How do you balance the need for fun and engagement with the need for structure and accountability?

  4. Can you tell us about a particularly meaningful moment or achievement that you experienced while working with young people in the care system?

  5. How do you approach self-care and wellness in your work, and what strategies do you use to manage the emotional demands of working with young people who have complex needs?
