After 5 years of enormous fun and hard work as Chief Executive of The Cumnock Tryst, Jennifer Martin is stepping away to spend more time as a music maker herself.

We are therefore looking for an inspirational, dynamic, creative, hard-working strategic thinker to become our General Manager.

You will have a passion for music and its transformational power on people and places. Your natural flair for cultural administration, the ability to deliver high quality cultural programmes; combined with motivational leadership qualities, is what we need to deliver our vision.

The successful candidate will thrive on the challenge of ensuring long-term sustainability, bringing world class music to unexpected places, and will have the courage to lead the organisation into its second decade of growth and development without losing sight of our artistic vision, values and history.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious self-starter to work with a small, dedicated team, a supportive board of trustees and one of the world’s leading composers, Sir James MacMillan.
