Trustee Recruitment

Nevis Ensemble is seeking new Trustees to join the Board, including individuals willing to take on the roles of Chair, Treasurer and Company Secretary.

Nevis Ensemble’s founder-Trustees are keen to open up the organisation to new people and talent, resulting in the above exciting roles to help lead the orchestra in its mission to make music for everyone, everywhere, in the context of the challenging situation that all organisations are currently in.

Since our first performance in 2018, Nevis Ensemble has made a firm mark on the Scottish cultural landscape. This is an exciting time to be part of the organisation as we build on these initial successes.

2021 and beyond will present both exciting opportunities and difficulties and we are keen to have hands-on Trustees to help ensure that Nevis Ensemble continues to develop whilst remaining inclusive and both financially and environmentally sustainable.
