Centre Manager, LSO St Luke’s

Fifteen years ago the London Symphony Orchestra opened the doors to its music education centre located in the beautiful eighteenth century Hawksmoor Church of St Luke’s on Old Street.  In 2018 it is a thriving, bustling hub of musical activity enjoyed by local people coming to the Centre to make their own music, to our Orchestra members who rehearse here, as well as providing lunchtime and evening concerts featuring inspiring musicians of every genre and age and a home for LSO Discovery, our pioneering education and community programme.

The Centre Manager is responsible for managing LSO St Luke’s operations, providing effective delivery of our educational, artistic and commercial activities to the highest standards of quality, efficiency, safety and customer service. S/he balances the needs of a music education centre with the need to earn commercial income to underpin the business model and to develop and maintain the Centre’s facilities and services to the world-class standards expected of the LSO. This is your opportunity to join us!

Salary: £43,000 - £45,000 per annum, according to experience.
