Job Description

We are looking for a new Head of Pastoral Care to lead our Pastoral Care team, working with children and young people aged 9  -19.

The National Children's Choir of Great Britain meets twice a year for residential choir courses for children aged 9 - 19. The choir was founded with the aim of enhancing a young singer’s experience, both musically and socially, and this has remained at the core of our approach. The care of the choir member is holistic; musically, young voices are given the opportunity to develop outside their usual singing environments, and great care is taken to teach singers how to use these voices safely. Personally, NCCGB is an opportunity for members to learn and make new friends, in a supportive atmosphere that focuses on the individual and their wellbeing.

A team of pastoral carers looks after all aspects of choristers well-being during the courses and we are now looking for a Head of Pastoral Care, to lead this team, reporting to the Chief Executive. 

Applicants must have demonstrable experience of working with children and young people, ideally in a residential setting.

All applicants must complete a Staff Application form, and provide this with a copy of their CV and a letter of application, stating why they feel they would be suitable for the job.

The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
