Vacancy Type: Part-Time


Christ’s Hospital wishes to appoint a Visiting Music Teacher of Cello to start as soon as possible in the Autumn (Michaelmas) 2021 term on a fixed term contract until July 2022 to teach currently four pupils per week with potential for weekly ensemble sessions in addition.

The position would suit a well-qualified and capable cello specialist who has an enthusiasm for teaching music within the framework of a large co-educational boarding school.

The role is part time with days and hours of teaching duties to be agreed with the Head of Strings.  Christ’s Hospital has its own five-tier system of payment to VMTs which closely resembles the ISM/MMA/MU recommended rates and ranges from £26.33 – £34.08 per hour. Any ensemble direction will be paid at one rate above the normal rate the holder is paid for individual tuition. Travel expenses are paid up to a maximum of £23.46 per visit.

Christ’s Hospital welcomes applications from all sectors of the community as we aspire to attract staff that match the social and cultural diversity of our student intake. We consider the most important factor to be the right skills, abilities and attitude for the job which will ultimately improve the well-being and education of the pupils.  Applicants must have the right to work in the UK for the duration of the contract.  We are members of the Schools Inclusion Alliance and hold the Rainbow Flag Award.

Applications should be received by 9am on Friday 27th August 2021 and must be on the school’s application form.  CVs alone cannot be accepted.

Interviews will take place on 2nd and 3rd September 2021.
