About Youth Music
We’re a national charity investing in music-making projects for children and young people experiencing challenging circumstances.
We believe everyone should have the chance to make music.
Our projects help young people develop musically, of course, but they have personal and social outcomes too.
We know that those facing difficulties - economic problems, lifelong conditions, tough circumstances or behavioural issues - are often the ones who get the most out of music-making.
Youth Music offers meaningful chances to young people in complicated situations.
You can help us make a genuine difference to many more young lives.
About the role
This internship is designed to help someone who would like to work in the arts or charity sector, offering a fixed-term opportunity to gain experience and skills in a paid role. We’ll give you on-the-job training in all aspects of fundraising, offer external development opportunities where appropriate, and provide you with support towards finding your next role after Youth Music.
You don't have to have lots of experience to apply, but we are looking for enthusiasm and a desire to learn.
How to apply
- Write a cover letter explaining how you meet the requirements above, describing why the role is of interest to you, and giving examples of any relevant experience and skills. Send the letter, along with a CV including two referees, to firstname.lastname@example.org, with Fundraising Intern as the subject line.
- Please complete a copy of our Equal Opportunities Monitoring Form and send it with your application.
- At least one of your referees should be a previous employer or teacher, and the other can be from someone who knows you (not a family member).
After we’ve reviewed the applications we will undertake some short and informal telephone interviews with prospective candidates.
First round interviews will take place at Youth Music’s office in London. If you are invited to interview and are travelling from outside London, we will cover travel expenses.
