Brass Bands England Announces New Career Opportunities
Brass Bands England (BBE) is seeking to appoint two further roles as part of ongoing projects made possible by the £227,189 awarded as part of the Government’s £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund (CRF) to help face the challenges of the Coronavirus pandemic.
The Brass Band Archive has been stored at Brass Bands England’s headquarters in Barnsley for the last two years, after it was required to leave former premises in Wigan. Funding made available through the Culture Recovery Fund, means that it can now be appropriately managed, catalogued and selected materials digitised.
The collection includes over 8,000 sets of brass band music, countless historic programmes and photographs, plus a vast array of other artefacts, each needing careful examination.
The two Archive Project Officers will be based at the BBE’s National Office in Barnsley, but also required to travel when necessary to Heritage Quay, part of the University of Huddersfield who are invaluable partners in this heritage project.
Applications for these positions should be received by 9:00am on Friday 8 January, with interviews taking place on Friday 15 January. Please apply by email, enclosing CV and letter of application to [email protected]. Full details of the posts can be found at www.bbe.org.uk/careers.
