Music Therapist - NSUN

We are seeking a London-based Music Therapist to lead, help set up and establish a Music Therapy Programme for all our (many) members.

This is a voluntary but professional vacancy that could lead to a permanent position.

This vacancy should suit a recently unemployed Music Therapy university graduate with considerable or vast work placement experience or one who has been unemployed for ages but has proven and practical experience of working successfully as a Music Therapist, not just theoretical knowledge acquired from studying Music Therapy at university.

NSUN (National Survivor User Network), also known as the network for mental health, has a strong membership base of over 4000 that's still growing steadily so, this exciting role could be challenging and demanding.

If this sounds like the right opportunity for you and want more information about it, then please get in touch: Tim Aigoro segunaigoro@gmail.com
