Deadline: 31 December 2023
The Blair Academy are looking for East and North London based community dance practitioners and movement therapists to join our team.

We promote healthy, happy ageing through Hip Hop dance workshops in care and community settings.

At present, we’re recruiting for new care home and day centres that we have starting in December and January.

  • Compassionate
  • Full of Energy

Previous experience working with older people is desirable but not essential.

All successful interviewees will undergo 3-6 weeks unpaid training with us (approx 2 shadow classes per week).

After successful interview and training, we pay £32.50 per 45 min session. Invoices are sent at the end of the month and paid on the 1st of the next month.

In terms of days, some people teach one class a week with us, some teach 7-8. Usually the most you could fit into a day would be 2 classes because of the timings (usually start 11am, 2pm or 3pm).

We hold ourselves accountable to our commitments to our clients and the people who dance with us. We welcome people into the team who we can rely on to represent the brand well and build relationships with our dancers and the people who care for them.
