Job Description

Iford Arts is an established music charity focussed on the mounting of a small annual opera festival recognised internationally for the quality and immediacy of its productions. The charity also runs a training and development programme for young singers and an outreach programme into local schools. Based primarily in Bradford on Avon and serving the wider West of England region, we fill a notable gap in terms of the provision of professional, high quality opera production.

The charity is now in a period of transition, seeking a new permanent home for its Summer festival and ways of expanding its work with young singers and audiences. We are in need of a suitably qualified Hon. Treasurer to join the Board of Trustees and provide advice and oversight of the charity’s finances. Apart from accountancy qualifications the other essential attribute is a love of opera and a desire to see it develop and inspire new generations. Experience of major fundraising and of the Arts sector would be helpful.
