Office of the Chief Executive

Salary: Up to £50,000 per annum

ABRSM’s mission is to inspire musical achievement.

We believe that everyone, wherever they’re from, should have access to high-quality music learning and should have the opportunity to progress.

Over our 130-year history, ABRSM has become the UK’s largest music education body and Awarding Organisation in music, and the world’s leading provider of music exams, offering assessments to over 600,000 candidates in more than 90 countries every year. In collaboration, we design and deliver a broad and rich offer of qualifications and awarding-winning digital and published resources to learners and teachers that present pathways to build musical skills and support progress in all learners of all ages. Our reputation, representation and delivery overseas make us a significant exporter and contributor to the cultural and educational reach and influence of the UK.

We work in partnership with the Royal Academy of Music, the Royal College of Music, the Royal Northern College of Music and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland to build understanding of the state of musical education and the drivers of musical progression, and to present a positive force for music education in the UK and overseas. We are committed to sustaining the necessary public policy focus on music education and to working with government and sector partners in the UK and overseas to bring the social, personal and cognitive benefits of learning music to as many learners as possible.

The Policy and Research Manager is a senior role which will be key to positioning ABRSM, and in association with its Royal Schools partners, as a distinct voice and trusted authority that has potential to shape the future of music education. You will help us to keep pace with the policy and cultural context of music learning, nationally and internationally, and develop research and policy initiatives, and advocacy and action plans with government, the music education sector and others, to address the drivers of musical progression.

We are looking for someone with experience of policy development or research in government, education, commerce or not-for-profit organisations. Knowledge of music education is desirable but not essential. You will be a strategic-thinker, innovative and action-orientated with great relationship-building and influencing skills. You will have at least a degree-level qualification or equivalent, which may be related to public policy, social sciences or economics. A background in applied social or economic research is desirable, as is experience of managing research and policy budgets, programmes and partnerships, and policy or advocacy campaign management.

You’ll be joining the CEO’s close team, creating a central function that will serve the CEO and the wider organisation, working with the Royal Schools of Music and a range of external organisations.

ABRSM is a friendly company that offers its employees a range of benefits, including a contributory pension scheme. You’ll be based at our open-plan contemporary offices, close to the Barbican in the City of London, which has excellent underground and overground transport links.

ABRSM is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and we expect our workforce to share this commitment.
