The California Jazz Conservatory (CJC) –– the only private music conservatory in the country solely devoted to jazz and related styles of music –– is currently seeking a Director of Recruitment to lead our recruiting efforts. The Director of Recruitment will research and seek out opportunities, represent the CJC in recruitment contexts, work to build relationships in the local and wider jazz community, identify prospective students and guide them through the application process to meet targeted recruitment goals.
The CJC awards Bachelor of Music, Associate of Arts and Master of Music degrees in Jazz Studies. Since 1997, the CJC community education program (the Jazzschool) has also offered classes, workshops and concerts to the public. Located in the heart of Berkeley’s Downtown Arts District, the CJC is a keystone of the San Francisco Bay Area’s vibrant music scene.
The ideal candidate will be enthusiastic, engaging and dedicated, and have a demonstrated track record in recruiting or marketing, particularly in higher education. We’re looking for a new team member who will attract our next generation of students: an organized, reliable self-starter that has familiarity with music performance or production, and fluency with the language and culture of jazz music.
Compensation for this part-time, permanent, non-exempt position is commensurate with qualifications and experience; work hours vary from 10-30 hours per week depending on season/need. CJC employees may attend concerts, classes and workshops free of charge!
A decades-long leader in jazz education and performance, the CJC strongly supports diversity and equal opportunity among our staff, administration and Board. We welcome all applicants irrespective of race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, or disability.
To apply, please e-mail your resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will consider our first round of applications on Monday, September 20th.
