Be part of a 700-strong community of musicians

We have currently suspended recruitment to all examiner teams, but will restart as soon as we are able to.

If you are looking for a freelance role that supports developing musicians, complements a portfolio career, and lets you travel, then, music examining could be just the thing for you.

For the first time, we are looking to recruit and train a team of examiners based in South East Asia. We will be running a training course in Singapore in February 2020.

Hear what it’s like to be a Grade examiner from our Chief Examiner John Holmes:

What we look for
  • Musician with a strong educational background
  • Willingness to travel across South East Asia (our biggest international tours take place in Hong Kong, Malaysia, China and Singapore, often in groups with others)
  • Experience and qualities to cope and react positively in a range of situations
  • Experience of working with children
  • Competent but not necessarily performing pianist 
  • Time commitment of at least three weeks, twice a year
What you'll enjoy
  • Comprehensive training and ongoing professional development if you're successful (unique for a freelance role in music education)
  • Competitive pay, with the potential to work as much as you want
  • Dedicated help desk for any queries or support
  • International SOS support when working overseas for any medical or security issues
