Job description

JOB: Skills Development Intern, working on Attitude is Everything’s “Beyond the Music” Project

  • Do you want to work in the music or live events industries?
  • Do you identify as deaf, disabled, neurodivergent or have a long term physical or mental health condition?
  • Are you looking for an opportunity to use your existing skills whilst building your experience?

Attitude is Everything is excited to offer an opportunity to join our growing team in a paid intern position within our volunteering and skills development programme. The new ‘Beyond the Music’ programme has been made possible by funding from The National Lottery Community Fund – Reaching Communities.

About Beyond the Music

The project aims to tackle the barriers Deaf and disabled people face to volunteering and working in the music industry, both by providing advice, guidance and training for music industry organisations around how to create an accessible workplace culture and by supporting Deaf and disabled people working or aspiring to work in the industry via the creation of a Professionals Network and by brokering training, mentoring, shadowing and skills development opportunities.

About the Intern Role

This post is to enable an ambitious disabled person to gain paid experience of work in a charity supporting access to live music, providing a next step towards employment in the live music industry. It will serve the ambitions of our new volunteering and skills development programme, Beyond the Music, supporting accessible volunteering opportunities.

In order to apply you need to identify as one of the following:

  • Deaf
  • Disabled
  • Having a long-term mental health condition
  • Having a long-term physical health condition
  • Neurodivergent

You do not have to identify as disabled to apply, as long as one of the above applies to you.  However we would expect any candidate to work within our ethos of the social model of disability during the course of the role. 

Our application documents supply information on Attitude is Everything, the Beyond the Music project and the context for this post, and full details on salary, terms and entitlements.

This role was originally conceived to support our work at festivals. Due to the uncertainty of the re-opening timetable, we have rewritten the role to support the project as a whole but we hope that onsite festival work can still be a key element of what you do in the role.

The role is funded for eleven weeks but we aim to be flexible if this timescale clashes with education or other areas of your life.

Salary: Pro-rata equivalent of £20 111 per year (which works out at £386.75 per week or £11.05 per hour)

Hours: This post is planned to be full time for 35 hours a week for 11 weeks. However we are also open to reconfiguring the role to be part time to fit around existing commitments or access requirements.

The role will involve working at Latitude and Reading festivals and you will need to be free on the weekends of 22 – 24 July and 26 – 28 August. Time off in lieu is available for any hours worked outside of standard office hours. Please let us know before applying if these dates are not possible.

Holidays: Pro-rata of 26 days per year

Based: You can work from home, at our office in London NW1 or a combination of both!
