We're looking for a skilled music therapist to join us between January and August 2017 to help with our 'Music in Mind' project for people with dementia and their carers.
Music in Mind is a creative music therapy initiative which aims to improve the quality of life for people with dementia through improved communication, mood and cognitive ability, decreased agitation and improved relationships with carers. The programme brings together the clinical expertise of a Music Therapist alongside a musician from the orchestra who adds breadth and depth to the music-making and supports the Music Therapist in a group setting.
The person must have experience of working with older people and/ or people with mental health issues and be able to demonstrate how they have successfully delivered group Music Therapy sessions. Experience of working with people with dementia is not essential but is greatly encouraged. They must be registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), have a clear DBS check and possess both Public Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurance.
