The Richard Shephard Music Foundation is a new charity (1189066) with a mission to bring the experience and enjoyment of music to children in Yorkshire and beyond. Our work in schools starts in September and we now need a dynamic General Manager to prepare the charity for launch and to oversee the work of our expert delivery partners. Initially part-time (2-3 days a week) this is a brilliant opportunity to have a pivotal role in the development of an outstanding arts and education charity based in York. An excellent ambassador, you will be confident in dealing with schools, multi-Academy Trusts, musicians, major donors, arts administrators and our Trustees and Patrons. You will bring independence of view in developing the charity's stategy and will be skilled in business planning and operational management.
