We are recruiting: Trainee Producer

We are looking for a person with a passion for music and young people, who is committed to working in the Newport community. This is an entry level role, so we don’t expect any work experience - what we are looking for most of all is a passion for creativity, and an interest in making it accessible for everyone.

The contract on offer is for 10 days initially, at £150 per day. It runs across 2 months from mid-August to mid-October 2021. It equates to just over 1 day per week during that time; the work will require some flexibility - we can work together to find a pattern that suits you and the team.

The Trainee Producer will be responsible to the Executive Producer, and will work with her and with the Board of Trustees to plan and develop work.

How to Apply

Write a cover letter (2 pages or less) or film a video of yourself (no more than 5 minutes). Tell us about yourself, your skills and experience, and what you could bring to the role. We’d like to hear about where you see yourself in the long term, and the experiences that have shaped your journey so far.

Send this with your CV and references to producer@operasonic by Sunday 15 August at 5pm.

You will be informed if you have been invited for interview by Wednesday 18th August.

If you have any questions about the role, have access requirements at any stage (application, interview, or on the job), or need any support in making this application, please do get in touch: producer@operasonic.co.uk . We’re committed to making this role as accessible as possible.


Over 18 and under 26

We use the word opera, but you don’t need a background in classical music for this job. If you’re interested in music and making things happen we want to hear from you.
