The Jacqueline du Pré Music Building (JdP) is a part of St Hilda's College, University of Oxford, and is a centre for the learning, teaching, performance, and experience of music at all levels, at all ages, and for people from all backgrounds. The JdP building is dedicated to the memory of the extraordinary cellist and Honorary Fellow of St Hilda's, Jacqueline du Pré, and has become an important feature of musical life in Oxford since its opening in 1995.

The JdP was built for chamber music performance and boasts exceptional acoustics and state of the art facilities including an integrated music studio, lighting rig and practice rooms. The JdP is renowned for its wide-ranging classical music programme, from a professional concert series, to innovative student opera performances, to children’s cushion concerts. Many of these events are streamed live on the JdP’s pay-per-view LiveStreaming service reaching global audiences. Furthermore, the JdP is a venue for cutting-edge research activities run by members of the college involving academic disciplines, dance, contemporary classical music, film and more.

We wish to appoint a highly-motivated, proactive, and customer-service orientated individual to oversee the day-to-day running of the JdP. Experience of delivering and promoting events is essential, and our ideal candidate will have strong inter-personal skills and will be able to build strong working relationships with College members, clients and external partners. This is an exciting opportunity for someone with a keen interest in classical music and other art forms, and a flair for marketing events and concert management.  The ability work flexibly and to attend events out of normal working hours, including evening and weekends, to ensure smooth running is also essential.
