Thank you for your interest in this job with Making Music. 

We are looking for the best person for this role, whatever your past opportunities, so we are asking you to complete three tasks online, and your answers to these will be the only information the two staff members making a longlist will look at.

We understand that having different voices from all sections of society in our team will help us be the best organisation we can be and best support our diverse membership. We especially welcome applications from disabled people, people of the Global Majority or people whose socio-economic background has limited their opportunities.

The job: 

We are looking for a part-time Finance & Office Administrator to support our Finance Manager and our Membership & Services Manager with administrative tasks, and to look after our office. 

Making Music is the UK association for leisure-time music, with 4,000 music groups in membership including choirs, bands, ensembles of all kinds, orchestras, and more. 

The 22.5 hours per week can be worked flexibly, and at least some of them from home, by agreement with your line manager, but we would expect you if at all possible, to spend at least 2 days or 2 part-days each week in our office by London Bridge.

We are looking for someone who is organised and has great attention to detail, is comfortable working with numbers and has basic maths, and is good at communicating with our members via email and on the telephone. We expect you to be familiar with frequently used software programs such as Word and Excel, but full training will be provided on financial and administrative tasks, so you do not need to have prior experience, just an interest and willingness to learn!

This is a friendly team, and our bright and lively office is located in one of the buzziest areas of London, with excellent transport links and nice places to spend your lunchtimes or meet friends after work.

We are committed to making adjustments to our application process – please get in touch and tell us what we can do: we want you to have the best chance at showing us what you are capable of. Please email Harriet ( or phone 020 7939 6030 and ask for Harriet. Harriet can also help with any further information about the role or the application process.
