This post is offered as part of National Youth Arts Wales’ commitment to encouraging more young people from a diverse range of backgrounds to consider a career in the creative industries. With funding from the Youth Music Incubator fund, we will be creating nine new roles over two years for young people from under-represented communities within the arts; ethnically diverse young people, D/deaf and Disabled young people and young people from lower socio-economic backgrounds. 

  • Salary: £17,290 per annum pro rata, paid monthly
  • Hours of work: Either 14 hours per week or 21 hours per week depending on which contract you choose. Working days are usually Monday to Friday between 9 – 4.30 however NYAW frequently operates at weekends during certain times. Time off is given for any overtime worked.
  • Contract: Fixed term, part-time 3 days a week for six months OR Fixed term, part-time 2 days a week for nine months
  • Deadline for applications: Monday 26 April 2021, 5pm


You must:

1. Be over 18 and under 25 at the time of your appointment;

2. Be a full time UK resident / eligible to work in the UK;

3. Be from a Black, Asian or other ethnically diverse background for example including but not limited to African Diaspora people; South, East, and South East Asian diaspora people; Middle East and North African people, and other ethnically diverse people living in Wales. We recognise the limitations of using these terms but are committed to improving the diversity of the people we employ.

This is a trainee role in which you will be given hands on experience at producing music-based events and both online and live music projects for young people.

We’ll help you understand the work of NYAW, of the Music Futures project and give you time to learn the ropes. We will listen to your ideas. We’ll introduce you to established producers who work for NYAW and other people from outside our organisation who can help develop your existing skills.

You’ll be part of a small team which helps develop the creative skills of talented young people in Wales within rock/pop and indie music. We want to help you use and develop your skills and interests to help further your own ambitions and those of the participants in our Music Futures project.

Employment experience is not essential for this post – we are interested in your potential and your other experiences that might make you suitable for this role. We want someone who is enthusiastic, keen to learn, committed, with energy and passion and a desire to develop a career in the arts.

This project is supported by Youth Music’s Incubator Fund, thanks to funding from players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
