Trustee Recruitment


Orchestras Live is looking for new trustees to help us deliver our vision that Orchestras are for everyone. We want to provide leadership for the orchestral sector and increase the creative and social impact of orchestras within local communities.

Who we are looking for, and why

We are looking forward to welcoming up to four new trustees over the next couple of years who will be active, enthusiastic and involved members of our dynamic and motivated team. 

The trustees are jointly responsible for the overall governance and strategic direction of the charity, its financial health and developing our aims, objectives and goals. To support this, we need a broad range of skills, expertise and life experience. Diversity at board level steers stronger decision making, offering a broader range of perspectives on issues and greater creativity in generating ideas and solutions. Greater breadth of experience and specialist knowledge enables the Board to understand better the needs of all our beneficiaries and partners, and to both steer and challenge management decisions.
