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 the finance and legal aspects of running a company are in order, and that offers advice, expertise and support. We are currently seeking a Chair and new board members who believe in our aim of bringing people and music closer together.

As we look ahead to celebrating our 40th anniversary in 2024, we are keen to hear from anyone who is able to contribute to and guide our strategy and activities. 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 people aged under 30 or who feel they are under-represented in the classical music scene.

There are some areas of expertise that we're keen to have represented on the board, particularly people who work with neighbourhood/community organisations in Sheffield and have knowledge of the city, or who have experience of creative practice, fundraising or charitable governance, in order to strengthen these aspects of Music in the Round.

How to apply:
For more information, please download a copy of our application pack. We ask applicants for a CV and EITHER a supporting statement OR two minute video explaining why you'd like to become a trustee and if you would like to apply for the position of Chair.  

Deadline for applications is 12pm, 15 November 2019.

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.

Can I apply in other ways rather than as a written document?
Yes. If you'd like an informal chat about becoming a board member, call us on 0114 281 4660 or email us at If you'd like to apply using a video or audio file that's absolutely fine.

What happens after I apply?
If we want to meet you to discuss the role, we will get in touch to arrange a time to meet you informally. There could also be an opportunity for you to chat to an existing board member. You'll then be invited to observe a board meeting. If you'd like to become a trustee after that meeting you'll be formally signed up at the following meeting.
