Details of all opportunities currently available with Into Opera are listed below.
Recruiting - Trustees
Into Opera is a progressive arts and educational charity with a strong vision and growing ambition. We are delighted to announce that we are expanding our Board of Trustees and seeking to appoint at least two new Trustees.
We are always looking to the future, and board members have the opportunity to contribute to what that future may look like for Into Opera. By joining the Board you will have the opportunity to work with colleagues to develop and support the implementation of the charity’s strategy.
Into Opera creates unique opera experiences, designed to offer imaginative and empowering first encounters of opera for new audiences and participants. We produce professional opera productions, commission new operas and English-language translations, develop bespoke educational projects, commission research exploring creativity in education and the value of opera in education, and provide creative CPD opportunities for teachers.
We are looking for individuals to join our board who are interested in addressing inequalities in society. Our Board of Trustees and Artistic Director/CEO are committed to reviewing and exploring the ways we can tackle and remove potential social, educational, economic or geographic barriers that prevent communities from accessing opera and cultural experiences. We are interested in hearing from people who believe that the arts can make a powerful and positive social impact. Crucially, we are looking for people who would like to make a contribution to the future of this charity, as well as the arts and educational sector.
Our recruitment pack details particular areas of expertise that we would like to bring to our board including:
Fundraising and Individual Giving
Media and/or Public Relations
Extensive Professional Experience Working in Opera or Supporting the Opera Sector
However, this list is not definitive. If you feel you may have something to offer which we have not listed, please do still get in touch.
This is an exciting time for Into Opera. We are based in Norfolk but we are now beginning to extend the reach of our work nationally.
How to Apply
If you would like to submit an expression of interest in becoming a Trustee, please email us a CV, along with a short letter outlining your motivation for applying and how you might be able to contribute to the development of the charity. We would be grateful if you could also complete our Equal Opportunities Monitoring Form.
Deadline: Monday 17th May at 10am
Please send your expression of interest to our Artistic Director and Chief Executive, Genevieve Raghu: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are considering applications on a rolling basis so we encourage interested applicants to get in touch at their earliest convenience.
Anyone interested in supporting the work of Into Opera is encouraged to apply. It is not essential for you to have direct experience within the Arts sector to apply. Innovation, resilience and creativity are essential to our strategy and we recognise the value of learning from other industries.
We particularly welcome applications from women and individuals from black, asian and minority ethnic backgrounds to ensure greater gender balance and diversity on our board.
If you would like to arrange an informal discussion before submitting an application, please send Genevieve an email and either she or the Chair of the Board of Trustees, David Walker, will be happy to have a conversation with you.
