Location:  25 The Calls, Leeds, LS2 7EH
Salary:  £21,414 to £24,771 per annum
Full Time Permanent

The conservatoire is looking for someone with excellent attention to detail to join its Policy and Planning team.

The successful candidate will be responsible for administering our academic and corporate committees, overseeing policies and procedures and assisting with Data Protection and Freedom of Information administration. Excellent written skills are essential, along with the ability to summarise complex information quickly and clearly for a range of audiences. Other key requirements are excellent organisational, administrative, problem-solving and IT skills. Experience of Higher Education administration and formal governance is desirable, but not necessary.

This is an excellent opportunity to take on a wide-ranging role, to be involved in the business of the conservatoire at the highest level, and to create and review processes to make sure that our governance is carried out effectively and transparently.

The role is suitable for job share, and we would consider requests for part-time and flexible working. The postholder will be responsible for supporting the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee and our student consultative committees, so we would particularly welcome applications from people with an interest in diversity and/or student engagement in Higher Education.

We’re committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people and vulnerable adults and expect staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

The HR department is contactable on 01132 223425 or by email at 

We are currently trialling anonymous shortlisting. Your name and personal details will not be visible to the panel until after shortlisting has been completed.
