A bit about the role

LIPS Choir is looking for someone to help with project work on a freelance basis between September 2016 and January 2017. This role is part of a passionate team of freelancers and volunteers (musicians and organisers) working on key projects including:
·                  Large concerts in December 2016 & 2017
·                  An ambitious new project for 2017

A bit about LIPS Choir
Based in London, all-woman choir LIPS has been performing original arrangements of pop, dance, garage and disco classics since 2009. The 75-strong non-auditioned choir has performed at Bestival and Wildernes, at The Union Chapel and Royal Festival Hall and we’ve collaborated with Goldfrapp and Leona Lewis. LIPS puts on club nights and we support the grassroots group Women Asylum Seekers Together London.


We’re looking for someone who…
·        Has a passion for amplifying women’s voices in music and wider society
·        Has lots of ideas, an open mind, and up for some creativity
·        Is able to work with minimal supervision
·        Is highly organized and happy to get stuck in with a bit of admin
·        Is good at finding things out – you’ll be looking for venues, partners to work with, materials….
·        Is genuinely detail-focused!
·        Is confident in making contact with people including artists, other organisations, and press
·        Friendly and approachable and up for being nice even when everyone’s stressed out!
·        Likes working with volunteers

We don’t mind what your background or experience is; we are more interested in finding someone with the right skills and attitude. But do tell us if you’ve got experience in the arts, music, and events!

We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic applicants/People of Colour as these groups are under-represented in our team.

** We expect that applicants will have capacity to work during daytimes in the main part. 
    This role is for someone with capacity for roughly 1 day of work per week. This role is not suitable for someone       
    working a full-time job. 
***On no more than 1 side of A4, just tell us why you’re interested and what you’d bring to the role
