Join our Board

Nottingham Music Service are seeking to appoint trustees to join our current board of seven members. We are looking for individuals with interests and experience in working with diverse young audiences, digital engagement, commercial development, fundraising and strategic HR. We welcome applications from those who do not have previous board experience or specific areas of experience, as mentoring can be offered in the role. 

We particularly encourage applications from disabled people and people from black, Asian and ethnic backgrounds, as these groups are currently under-represented in the music education sector and at Board level. 

The trustees play an integral role in steering the charity towards its strategic mission to make music make a difference, identifying key priorities and ensuring that the organisation continues to grow, adapt and improve. Please see the document below for more information on trustee roles and on how to apply.

Please email michael.aspinall@nottinghammusichub.org.uk for more information about the position or if you have any questions.
