Association of British Orchestras

Trustee (x3)

Orchestras for All Voluntary position Closing date 31 January 2022
Orchestras for All believes that all young people should be able to access the life-changing experience of group music-making, whatever their circumstances. We exist to break down significant barriers to music-making – logistical, financial, geographical, personal and cultural – across the UK. As the charity commences its second decade of life-changing ensemble music-making, the team now seeks three new trustees to join the Board in 2022.

In particular, we are looking for trustees that have a skillset in one or more of the following topics: child protection and safeguarding, digital communications and advocacy (with working experience of SEO), fundraising, and/or music education for secondary students, both in and out of school.

We are seeking applications from candidates throughout the UK who are passionate about music and the arts, keen to help young people gain access to music regardless of their personal circumstances and convinced of the impact that music can have on their wider lives. Alongside advocating for the arts, you’ll have the opportunity to contribute to discussions and influence key decisions about the future of the charity.

OFA welcomes and encourages applications from Black, Asian and ethnically diverse applicants and people from a lower socio-economic background, who are currently underrepresented in our team and within the orchestral sector.

Please note: This is a voluntary position.
Deadline to apply: 11.59pm, Monday 31 January 2022
