In a bid to encourage all youngsters' interest in music, a charity is seeking help to expand its reach throughout west Cumbria.

Musical non-profit organisation Soundwave is looking for people of all ages and backgrounds to join it on its next phase of growth and development.

The charity, run by long-serving leaders and a range of freelance specialists, is seeking ambitious and experienced individuals including those from the music industry, music education, youth services, legal and marketing sectors, accounting, project management, business services and more.

Soundwave director Dave Roberts said: “We’ve undergone a period of significant improvement over the last five years and it’s a really exciting time for Soundwave as we grow and develop into a mode fit for the future.

“We’re looking for individuals to join us in our journey in making music accessible to all.

"We want to make sure we are the best we possibly can be, and we know there’s a wealth of experience and knowledge out there just waiting to be tapped into. We’re also offering a unique opportunity for young people to become part of the highest level of leadership in our newly formed young adviser roles."

The organisation has opportunities for permanent trustees and young advisers, aged between 18 and 30, to help the group reach all corners of the county.

Mr Roberts added: “Our organisation benefits young people in Copeland and why not inject the same youth and enthusiasm into our board of directors, and give young people the chance to shape the direction of the organisation for their peers and other young people in the community.”

If you're interested in joining the Soundwave team, email detailing any skills and experience, and the reasons for wishing to become a trustee or young adviser, by no later than July 24, 2020.
