Trustee Recruitment


Role Outline

The National Youth Jazz Collective (NYJC) is currently seeking to appoint up to four new Trustees, to join our Board of Directors.

NYJC’s Board plays a central role in the life of the Collective and is responsible for upholding the ethos, values, style and purpose of the organisation. It is peopled by expert individuals who are excited to support an ambitious team, and who have an authentic commitment to supporting young people to develop their skills, passion and experience as jazz players.

Board Members will share a passion for our work, and be committed to NYJC being an equal, diverse and inclusive organisation. We welcome interest from all sectors and backgrounds – we’re not looking for jazz or music specialists – and are keen to encourage applications from under-represented groups, particularly people from Black, Asian and ethnically diverse communities, but also a broad age-range and people living with disabilities.

You can find further information on NYJC and a full Trustee Job Description by downloading the Trustee Recruitment Job Pack here.
