Association of British Orchestras

Trustee with expertise in Fundraising

Spitalfields Music Voluntary Closing date 09 June 2023
Spitalfields Music is looking for a trustee with experience of fundraising. You might be working at a senior level in an arts organisation or another charity, or have led fundraising campaigns as a senior volunteer. We need to increase our fundraised income back to pre-pandemic levels, through a mix of individual giving at all levels, support from trusts & foundations, and major donors. Corporate support isn’t high on our agenda at the moment, though never say never.

If this isn’t you, but your interest has been piqued, drop us a line anyway. We’re always interested to meet new people from across the country, and it could be that your set of skills and experiences are perfect for us, and we just haven’t realised. We’re big on learning, so tell us what you can bring.


We want to make this process as inclusive as possible.

Applications can be made in writing, by video, or by audio file. Please keep written submissions to max. two pages of A4, and video/audio to c. 3 minutes. We’re not judging your editing skills; a simple recording on a phone is fine!

Please tell us why you want to be a trustee, what your interest is in Spitalfields Music and the wider arts sector, and what you feel you could bring to our board, alongside something about yourself.

Please email this to , headed ‘Trustee Application’, alongside the Equal Opportunities Monitoring form. This form will not be disclosed to anyone involved in assessing your application.

Closing date: Friday 9 June at 10am
Interviews on Zoom: Wednesday 14 June

Upcoming Board Meetings:
Wednesday 26 July 6pm-8pm
Wednesday 25 October 6pm-8pm
