Opportunity: Join the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland Board of Governors

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.

Full information on this role can be found on the recruitment portal.

The deadline for applications is Tuesday, 9th February at 5pm.

Creative Carbon Scotland is a partnership of arts organisations working to put culture at the heart of a sustainable Scotland. We believe cultural and creative organisations have a significant influencing power to help shape a sustainable Scotland for the 21st century.

In 2011 we worked with partners Festivals Edinburgh, the Federation of Scottish Threatre and Scottish Contemporary Art Network to support over thirty arts organisations to operate more sustainably.

We are now building on these achievements and working with over 70 cultural organisations across Scotland in various key areas including carbon management, behavioural change and advocacy for sustainable practice in the arts.

Our work with cultural organisations is the first step towards a wider change. Cultural organisations can influence public behaviour and attitudes about climate change through:

Changing their own behaviour;
Communicating with their audiences;
Engaging the public’s emotions, values and ideas.
