Music in the Round seeks new Trustees
Like most arts organisations, Music in the Round has a board of Trustees that helps us make good decisions, ensure the finance and legal aspects of running a company are in order, and that offers advice, expertise and support. We are currently seeking 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.
Deadline for applications is 30 November 2018.
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 you whatever your area of expertise.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. If you'd like to apply using a video or audio file that's absolutely fine.
What happens after I apply? If we think you might be a good fit and you meet the basic criteria, we will 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.
