Music in the Round seeks a Chair and new Trustees
Music in the Round has a board of trustees that helps us make good decisions, ensures our finances and legal aspects are in order, and offers advice, expertise and support. It’s also a way of us listening to and working together with a range of people so we hear and engage with different voices.
We are currently seeking two or three new trustees, one of whom will also be our new Chair, who believe in our aim of bringing people and music closer together.
We think that the best organisations have a diversity of voices, so welcome applications from anyone regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion/belief, sexual orientation or age. In particular, we are keen to hear from anyone who feels they are under-represented in chamber music.
We also would like to meet people who work with or have knowledge of neighbourhood/community organisations in Sheffield and the vicinity.
How to apply:
For more information, please download a copy of our application pack.
We ask applicants for EITHER a short CV and a supporting statement OR a two-minute video explaining why you'd like to become a trustee or the Chair of Music in the Round.
Deadline for applications is 9am, Friday 4 February
Frequently asked questions:
Do I have to have experience of being on an art's organisations board?
Not at all.
Do I have to have a background in the arts?
No - we want to hear from anyone who'd like to play a part in the organisation.
What happens after I apply?
We will get in touch to discuss your application, and if appropriate will arrange a time to meet you informally, which will be with a trustee and the Chief Executive, to have a conversation about Music in the Round, the role of a trustee and why you’re interested in becoming involved with the organisation. Depending on the outcome of this meeting you could be invited to attend a board meeting as an observer. If you'd like to become a trustee after that board meeting, you'll be formally signed up at the following meeting.
