Opportunity: Join the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland Board of Governors

25th January 2021

The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (RCS) are recruiting new members for their Board of Governors.

The Board of Governors play an important role in the life of RCS and we plan to recruit several new Board members over the next six months. Governors are integral to the development and implementation of the Royal Conservatoire’s strategic objectives and offer constructive challenges as well as the monitoring and evaluating of performance in line with these objectives. In more general terms, Governors have an important role in supporting the delivery of the Royal Conservatoire’s strategic priorities including its teaching excellence, innovation and sustainability agendas.

We welcome applications from candidates with a strong commitment to higher education in Scotland and a passion for the performing arts.

We’d especially love to hear from candidates with specialist professional knowledge and experience in the following areas:

  • Development and fundraising
  • Finance and pensions
  • Performing arts
  • Academia

As well as attending Board meetings, Governors are expected to play an active role in one or more sub-committees for which their knowledge and experience is particularly relevant. In addition, Governors will be expected and encouraged to attend performances and act as ambassadors for the institution.

If you are interested and would like to apply and find out more about this opportunity please get in touch, sending an up-to-date CV and a covering letter outlining why you would like to be considered for the role and any key points you’d like us to consider, as well as a completed equalities and diversity monitoring form.
