About this opportunity:

With the growing reputation and impact of the organisation, a strong and dynamic chair supported by a strong, experienced group of Trustees, Sound and Music is seeking three new Board members with the following profiles:

Senior level strategic expertise and experience within a senior role in the cultural sector (not necessarily music), including in advocacy, partnership building and public funding.

Legal expertise, with a preference for expertise in intellectual property law.

Sound and Music seeks candidates with a keen interest in the organisation’s mission who can provide the support and challenge to the Chair, Chief Executive and senior management team to ensure that Sound and Music achieves its ambitions.

New Trustees will join Sound and Music at an exciting and important time. As we embark on planning for the coming period, they will have the opportunity to shape the strategies which will ensure that Sound and Music continues the growth and success of the last period. They will support the development of an organisation that is entrepreneurial and creates environments where new ideas and new approaches can flourish, as well as giving new music the voice, support and recognition nationally and internationally that it deserves. 

General attributes of all board members:

  • Potential to contribute constructively and effectively as Board/committee member

  • Ability to provide strategic direction, set overall policy, define goals, set targets and evaluate performance

  • Ensure financial stability - protecting and managing the charity’s property and ensuring the proper investment of its funds

  • Understanding and acceptance of the legal duties, responsibilities and liabilities of trusteeship and experience of serving as a Charity Trustee

  • Ability to attend 4 full Board meetings and 1 away day per year; also to give time to providing expert advice to the executive, as appropriate

  • Passionate about music but not necessarily working in the music sector

  • Potential to bring new financial and strategic partners to benefit Sound and Music

  • Adherence to organizational values
