Job & Career Opportunities
Wishing Well Music for Health
Musician in Healthcare Mentoring Programme
Location: Sussex
Deadline: 15 May 2023
Wishing Well Music for Health is offering a paid mentoring opportunity for musicians aged 18-25 who would like to gain experience working with children, young people and families in acute healthcare.

As part of our Youth Music funded programme in children and young people’s healthcare settings, we’re excited to offer places on our Mentor Programme throughout 2022-23. Successful applicants will work alongside the Wishing Well team in one of our partner hospitals for 10 weeks, receiving additional support and training before and after their project. This is a paid opportunity to gain experience working with children, young people and families in acute healthcare and to acquire skills which are transferable to all aspects of a music-based portfolio career.

Criteria for Mentees:

be 25 years of age or under, during your placement with us
have some experience/training in musical leadership in community settings
be registered as self employed and have public liability insurance in place (we can help you with both of those things if needed)
-have a keen interest in bringing your music into acute healthcare settings, using your skills to support the wellbeing of the hospital community through connection, empowerment and expression
be a good communicator and have a “reflective” practice.
be available for a 10 week placement at one of our two partner hospitals in Haywards Health (mid Sussex) or Brighton. Sessions are two hours long on a set day each week.

Please note that we have to wear masks at both of these settings - we are allowed to sing but not to use mouth blown instruments.

This is a rolling two year programme. To register your interest in the programme, contact Jo White on jo@wishingwellmusic.org.uk at any point between January 2022 and May 2023.
