After six years of service that included helping to start the project itself, Paul Warren has resigned as Director of The National Youth Pipe Band of Scotland, a band organized by the National Piping Centre in Glasgow. Warren cited personal reasons for his departure.
 
The organization is actively searching for a new Director, a full-time post that pays as much as £22,500 annually.
 
According to National Piping Centre Director Roddy MacLeod, the NYPB Director is responsible for the overall operations of the band – which is funded jointly by the Scottish Arts Council Youth Music Initiative and the National Piping Centre – including:
  • Planning courses and managing training events to recruit and train both new and existing members
  • Coordination of rehearsals and concerts
  • Maintaining financial planning and accountability
  • Overseeing marketing and PR
  • Bringing the band’s performance standard to the highest possible quality
  • Working with local authorities, schools, music coordinators, piping and drumming teachers, pipe bands and cultural coordinators across Scotland 
MacLeod said that applicants should be “highly-motivated individuals with first-class communication skills, an excellent track record in teaching and/or performing in piping, good IT skills and knowledge of financial planning/accountability.”
 
He said that interested pipers should forward their resume to amclaren@thepipingcentre.co.uk by November 28, 2008.
