  • Full-Time

CMCB is at an exciting juncture in our 113-year history, and we are eager to welcome a new Registrar to our Community Music School Programs Team. This role is a great early-career position for candidates with interest in the arts and education sectors who have strong written and oral communication skills and enjoy working in a dynamic environment. The Registrar will work closely with members of the Programs teams, particularly the other Registrar, and will manage the registration process, collaborate with faculty and staff on programming needs, and be the first point of contact for many of our families. Given the exposure this role has to all departments, such as the Advancement department to center the voices of young people, the individual in this role would gain a solid understanding of all aspects of the organization. While previous interest in the arts or non-profit sector is a plus, any candidate with attention to detail, strong customer service skills and a willingness to learn could thrive in this role. Like all roles at CMCB, there is significant investment in professional development training, mentorship from senior staff, and opportunity for future promotion within the organization.
