Open Strings Music

Register your Interest

Open Strings Music (OSM) is Brighton and Hove’s specialist community music service for adults of all abilities. We are a social enterprise which has been running community music projects in the city and beyond since 2013. We offer participatory music as a tool for engagement in a variety of community-based settings: for mental health, with older people, with people with learning disabilities, and with people with dementia and their carers.

We are recruiting a volunteer to maintain our website (; the primary task is adding new content, which will be provided by us on a monthly basis. The website has been created in WordPress, and the new content includes videos and new sections.

We often work remotely so this volunteer will be required to work primarily from home, with mutually-agreed meetings with OSM staff. 


Particular requirements:


  • experienced in using WordPress
  • meeting deadlines
  • adhering to Open Strings Music’s personal data and privacy policy
  • being able to work with minimal supervision


·        having an interest in the work of Open Strings Music and the groups we work with

·        good communication skills



  • adding new content (provided)
  • working efficiently and adhering to timescales
  • liaising with OSM staff
  • attending briefing meetings (up to four per year)
  • adhering to OSM’s policies 


1: an opportunity to work within the rapidly-growing field of music for wellbeing

2: being part of a small and vibrant team working in the arts

3: having their skills highly appreciated!

Practical Considerations

There are several blocks of content to be added to the website in the first instance, which we envisage will take between three and four hours to complete. When these are completed, the time commitment should generally be one hour per month.

Our office is in central Brighton but the majority of the administrative work we do is done remotely.
