Waltham Forest Music Service
Peripatetic Instrumental/Vocal Tutor
Waltham Forest Music Service (WFMS) is looking for enthusiastic and experienced instrumental/vocal tutors to work in schools and other settings delivering class, group and individual tuition. Class teaching experience is not compulsory but a willingness to develop in this area is required. We are looking to appoint someone who can be flexible in delivery and is keen to be involved in a variety of exciting music programmes within the borough.
WFMS is committed to recruiting, retaining and developing a workforce that reflects the diverse community that we serve. We particularly welcome applications from people from underrepresented groups including people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds and from all qualified candidates regardless of gender, disability, religion/belief, sexual orientation or age.
Waltham Forest is a diverse borough where diversity is valued and is integral to both, service delivery and employment of its staff. The Council is proud of its rich mix of communities and as the largest employer in the area, it works hard to respond to the changing needs of its population.
We use our statutory duties on race, gender and disability equality and best practice in respect of age, faith and sexual orientation to ensure equality of opportunity in the workplace.
The Council is committed to meeting its 4 equality objectives:
- Promoting equality of opportunity
- Opposing all forms of discrimination, intolerance and disadvantage
- Ensuring our workforce reflects the diverse communities of Waltham Forest at all levels.
- Providing fair, appropriate, accessible and excellent Services to all.
Respecting Diversity is a core Council value.
To support the above and reduce the risk of bias in its recruitment activities, the council is operating an anonymous shortlisting process, which hides personal information that can identify individuals until their application has been considered for shortlisting.
The council also operates a scheme whereby, for jobs graded up to and including scale SO2, internal candidates are considered first. This includes those candidates who self-identify as having a disability for the purposes of the Disability Confident scheme. For more information, please refer to our recruitment and selection policy
