Deadline

We are looking for two trustees with knowledge or expertise in digital marketing, business transformation, intellectual property law or international business. 

What will you be doing?

Founded in 1889, we have a long and storied history stemming from our commitment to nurture a love for, and achievement in, music.  In our 130th year, we are committed to inspiring achievement in music through not only our assessments, but also through many and varied programmes of support to teachers and their students around the world. At ABRSM, we believe that everyone, regardless of background or circumstance, should be supported to realise their full musical potential.

 

We are currently in the process of transforming our business and introducing new digital platforms to support our operations, examining and delivery of new and innovative digital products. We aim to become and innovative and learning organisation fit for the digital age that can anticipate customer needs and make a difference in global music education.

 

The Board of Trustees is responsible for the oversight and governance of the organisation.  The trustees currently meet three times a year for around two hours and for an Away Day every January. Trustees may also be asked to serve on one of the Board’s sub-Committees which also normally meet three or four times a year.

 

Who you are

As a trustee, you will be joining a progressive, professional and collaborative organisation. We are looking for individuals with an ability to think creatively, with good independent judgment, strategic vision and a commitment to the organisation. It is critical to be able to work as part of a team.

• digital marketing;

• business transformation, including digital transformation;

• knowledge of intellectual property law (UK and beyond); and

• international business experience or knowledge. 

 

You may already have an understanding and acceptance of the legal duties, responsibilities and liabilities of trusteeship but training can be provided.
