Scotland’s pioneering string orchestra, Scottish Ensemble, seeks Trustees
Scottish Ensemble (SE), known for its sector-leading innovation, is one of the UK’s most adventurous musical ensembles. Continually challenging perceptions as to what classical music performances can look and feel like, its visually-striking productions and exceptionally versatile and skilled musicians captivate audiences across Scotland and the world...live and online.
In addition to ground-breaking performances across the length and breadth of Scotland, SE also delivers talent development programmes and a burgeoning Music for Wellbeing programme. Connecting with healthcare and education partners across the country, this initiative grew out of a multi-year partnership with Maggie’s Centres.
The organisation is currently seeking multiple new Trustees to help it develop and realise a resilient and bold future plan, as it prepares for its next major application to principal funder, Creative Scotland.
Skills in marketing/branding; philanthropy; financial strategy; and corporate governance are particularly desirable.
The Board is also seeking to ensure it reflects the diversity of contemporary Scotland, and of SE's audiences; not all positions require previous board experience, and a full induction and training plan will be offered to all incoming Trustees.
If you have a passion for the performing arts and are eager to support a cutting-edge organisation with a highly engaged Board, please contact Ailsa Sutherland at FWB Park Brown on firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Conversations with key personnel within Scottish Ensemble’s executive team or board can also be arranged prior to interviews.
Closing date: Friday 23 June 2023
First interviews: Tuesday 11 July and Wednesday 12 July 2023 (10 am – 4 pm) or the following week should this be better suited.
