General Vacancies

Hertfordshire Music Service always welcomes enquiries from teachers who would like to work for us. 
When no specific posts are advertised, please still contact us to see how we can use your skills! 

You may be just starting out on your teaching career - in which case contact us and we can talk to you about pracitcal first steps - we always look for potential, enthusiasm and a genuine willingness to learn. 

We are regularly looking for teachers to deliver primarily one-to-one lessons in our music centres, either in the evenings or on Saturday mornings, which can be up to a four hour a day in some cases.

Interest in, and experience of, delivering whole class tuition is always valuable (though by no means essential), as is experience of working with SEND pupils and other harder to reach groups.
