Brass Bands England (BBE) has announced that it is recruiting two new staff members, with the successful applicants due to take up their posts early in 2019. Based in its National Office in Barnsley, the part-time positions of Education and Development Co-ordinator and Membership Support Officer will each provide three days of employment per week as part of BBE’s growing operation.
BBE’s Chief Executive Officer, Kenny Crookston, commented: “These roles have been created due to the impending departure of Sophie Anderson, our current Education and Development Manager, who will be finishing with BBE in December to take up a position with a global library co-operative. Sophie has been outstanding in her role in the time she has spent with us and we wish her every success in her new position. Having re-evaluated the workload in our small but growing team, we have come to the conclusion that the overall organisation would be best served by two part-time roles, with the Membership Support Officer providing administrative and logistical support to the development team.”
Kenny Crookston added: “We look forward to receiving applications for these key positions, which we should receive by 14 December. We expect to be in a position to carry out interviews in Barnsley on 20 December and we would like to have our new team members in position as early in 2019 as possible.”
