The Music Libraries Trust is looking for a new Bursaries Administrator to manage the bursary for the IAML (UK & Irl) Annual Study Weekend, and the Ian Ledsham bursary for the international IAML conference.

  • Liaising with IAML committees about prices and to inform them of successful bursary applicants
  • Acting as a point of contact for successful bursary applicants 
  • Attending quarterly meetings, where all Trust business is discussed. A Bursaries Report is given at each meeting
  • Writing blog posts on the Music Libraries Trust website about relevant bursary opportunities and uploading conference reports

The role will begin in September. Please contact Music Libraries Trust secretary, Edith Speller secretary@musiclibrariestrust.org if interested.
