the role

Desired skills and experience:

We are seeking commercially minded professionals who can add tangible value and have the gravitas to influence, challenge and support senior decision makers during a period of growth and consolidation.

Prior experience does not need to have been gained from within the charitable sector, but a passion for seeing lives transformed through education is essential!

We would particularly welcome applications from individuals with experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • Experience of working at senior or Board level, providing strategic leadership during times of change
  • The legal sector
  • School business management
  • Commercial expertise
  • Experience gained from working in the Arts and Cultural Sector

Time commitment:

Successful candidates would be required to commit to regular attendance at Board Meetings (usually 6 evening meetings per year) with occasional meetings with members of the Senior Leadership Team as appropriate.

Our work ‘comes to life’ through our annual programme of events such as the Youth Proms at the Birmingham Symphony Hall. Trustees are warmly welcomed to such events during the year and their attendance is encouraged.
