Septura Recruiting General Manager

Since its launch in 2014, Septura has established a reputation as one of the world’s leading brass ensembles. Through a critically-acclaimed series of nine recordings for the Naxos label, the group has transcribed a counterfactual history of repertoire by composers from the last 500 years for brass septet, a brand new classical configuration. This repertoire has formed the basis for Septura’s busy performance schedule, which has included performances at the Wigmore Hall, numerous broadcasts on BBC Radio 3, and tours to the USA, Japan, New Zealand and all over Europe. The group’s members are among the UK’s leading brass players, holding principal positions in the country’s top orchestras.

As we enter an exciting new phase in Septura’s journey, we are seeking to appoint a highly-motivated General Manager to oversee and expand the group’s activities. The role will include project planning and delivery alongside day-to-day administration, and the ideal candidate will have proven experience in one or both of these areas within the arts.

This is a part-time, flexible position, 8 hours per week paid at £15.60 per hour for an initial one-year period.
