The Royal Academy of Music is a stimulating and friendly environment with a diverse mix of students and staff from over 50 countries. Based in central London adjacent to Regent’s Park, we have been training musicians to the highest professional standards since our foundation in 1822. Many of the world’s leading musicians and performers studied with us and we are firmly focussed on developing tomorrow’s musical leaders in a number of disciplines including classical, jazz and musical theatre.

The Events & Venues Technicians provide support to the Events Technical Manager by assisting in the coordination and setup of Academy events including rehearsals, concerts, masterclasses, competitions and prizes, lectures, classroom activity, receptions and the Junior Academy, as well as recurring events in the academic calendar such as entrance auditions, examinations and Graduation.

This is a flexible, hands-on and proactive role that involves continuous communication with other Estates staff, Departmental Administrators and Junior Academy staff for event planning.   The post-holders are key in advising and assisting with technical services for teaching, classes and public events, including audio-visual of the highest quality.

The post-holders will act as stage managers for a variety of concerts and events and will work as a team with Front of House staff to ensure that performances run smoothly and any stage changes are executed in a professional and presentable manner to an audience.

There are two Events & Venues Technician roles currently available, collectively covering operational hours of 8am – 8pm Monday to Friday, plus alternate Saturdays 8am – 4pm.  Each role will average 34 hours per week, working on a fortnightly shift pattern.  The actual work hours and days per week will be flexible, depending on the events schedule.

Anticipated shift patterns will be 8am–2pm and 2–8pm Monday to Friday, plus alternate Saturdays 8am–4pm to assist the Junior Academy.  The weekday shifts will alternate weekly from the morning/lunchtime to the afternoon/evening, enabling both post-holders to build experience of the whole Academy day.  When the Junior Academy is out-of-term, weekend hours will be redistributed to assist with Sunday events or longer weekday events.

The Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service.

Student Data Manager
Full Time: 35 hours per week
Salary range: £33,282 - £38,894 per annum inclusive of London weighting
Reference: 19/013

The Royal Academy of Music is a stimulating and friendly environment with a diverse mix of students and staff from over 50 countries. Based in central London adjacent to Regent’s Park, we have been training musicians to the highest professional standards since our foundation in 1822. Many of the world’s leading musicians and performers studied with us and we are firmly focussed on developing tomorrow’s musical leaders in a number of disciplines including classical, jazz and musical theatre.

The Registry is a central department of the Academy, which offers an administration service covering the entire student lifecycle from enquiry and admission, to enrolment, assessment and awards. Reporting to the Academic Registrar, the Student Data Manager will hold a key role in the collection, quality, presentation and analysis of student data. This will inform planning activities such as student number forecasting, recruitment strategies, position analysis and performance benchmarking by the Academic Registrar and Senior Management Team. You will play a pivotal role in the preparation of data to support the Assistant Registrar (Student Lifecycle and Records) with the completion of a range of statutory returns including HESA Data Futures. The post holder will be responsible for the UNISTATS, NSS and Graduate Outcomes returns; and there will be scope to be involved in various projects within the institution, which require the provision of data.

Owing to this post being within a small specialist institution, the post holder will also participate in the Registry’s core business activities at peak points in the academic year including enrolment, auditions and graduation.  The post holder will work as part of a strong, friendly team whilst prioritising and planning their individual workload in order to meet deadlines.

Ideally you will have been involved with the analysis of student data in higher education before and have a good understanding of the key metrics, and the role of student analytics in helping an institution achieve its core aims. You will be proficient in exploring data in order to answer questions and solve problems, conducting rigorous analyses and presenting data to a range of stakeholders.

Completed applications must be received by 10am, Tuesday 2 April 2019. Interviews are expected to be held on Tuesday, 9 April 2019.

Enquiries or applications from recruitment agencies will not be accepted.
