Time Commitment
6 board meetings + AGM

Liverpool Philharmonic is central to Liverpool’s cultural offering as the largest music organisation in the city. With a mission to enhance and transform lives through music, Liverpool Philharmonic incorporates the critically acclaimed Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra – the UK’s oldest orchestra, led by Chief Conductor Domingo Hindoyan –  an extensive programme of participative work with young people and others across the community, and the presentation of around 400 concerts and events a year at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall. Inclusivity and relevance are cornerstones of Liverpool Philharmonic, and it is vital that the organisation reflects the communities it serves, not only internally, but also through the artists it works with, its audiences and the participants of its learning programmes. Through its flagship community programme, In Harmony, orchestral music-making is used to improve the life chances of children and their families in North Liverpool by increasing confidence, wellbeing, skills and resilience.

Against a backdrop of positive optimism for the future, an energy to continue rebuilding after Covid and the ambition to further Liverpool Philharmonic’s community involvement, the organisation is recruiting three Trustees, including one who would be agreed by the Board to become Chair upon appointment.

Chair

Ideal candidates for the Chair role will bring a strong and visible passion for the arts and its ability to change lives, alongside a commitment to Liverpool Philharmonic’s values and culture of inclusivity and widening access. The Chair will play a critical role in the future of Liverpool Philharmonic, providing Board leadership and supporting the Executive Team in determining future strategic objectives. Candidates will have previous Trustee or Board level experience and be able to lead with confidence and credibility, with a clear understanding of change management, both cultural change and engagement. Strong inter-personal, networking and relationship building abilities will be important, and the appointed person will be comfortable in a senior ambassadorial role liaising with a diverse range of stakeholders and helping to raise Liverpool Philharmonic’s profile. A connection to the area is also desired.

Trustees

Ideal candidates for the role of Trustee will similarly bring a strong and visible passion for the arts and its ability to change lives, alongside a commitment to Liverpool Philharmonic’s values and culture of inclusivity and widening access. The Trustees will play a critical role in the future of Liverpool Philharmonic, providing contribution and constructive challenge and supporting the Executive Team in determining future strategic objectives. Candidates will be senior leaders and be able to contribute at Board level with confidence and credibility, with a clear understanding of change management, both cultural change and engagement, and strong inter-personal, networking and relationship building abilities will be important. Again, a connection to the region is desired.
