We are hiring a Training and Learning Manager

Does the potential of the role that The Arts, and especially music, play within health and social care motivate and excite you?


Training and Learning Manager
(2 days per week)

  • Promoting training programmes for health/care staff and musicians (in partnership with the Marketing and Communications Manager)
  • Tailoring training programmes to meet the needs of partner organisations
  • Continually developing training offers to fit the needs of our clients
  • Engaging new audiences with our training offers
  • Resourcing (Trainers, equipment, consumables etc.) training programmes and coordinating with our team of Trainers
  • Ensuring the learning from across programmes is shared within OPUS, seeding organisational development
  • Seeking and participating in wider opportunities for organisational learning, and for the dissemination of OPUS’ learning

NOTE: Whilst experience of training delivery would help in carrying out this role, you will NOT be expected to deliver training (to either musicians, or to health and care practitioners) as part of this role. 

Are you passionate about co-creating accessible, inclusive and relevant opportunities for everyone to engage in music as part of health and wellbeing? 

Would you like to join us in developing and communicating our established training programmes for Musicians and Health and Care professionals within acute care and in community settings?

Are you pro-active and ambitious, and would relish the opportunity to work as part of the OPUS Co-Production team?

We are building capacity within our leadership team through the creation of this new role to deliver our bold ambitions within the Music in Health/care sector. This role is supported by our successful application to be a National Portfolio Organisation (NPO) of Arts Council England (ACE).  The new roles will sit alongside the existing roles of Chief Executive (FT), Co-Producer/Project Manager (PT), Marketing and Communications Manager (PT) and Finance Manager (PT).

The role will be supported by our experienced team of Healthcare Musicians/Trainers who will deliver the training.
