Budleigh Music Festival seeks a new Treasurer/Trustee Previous experience as a charitable Treasurer is highly desirable and an interest in the arts/music would be useful, as will some experience of dealing with funding bodies. The Treasurer will manage the financial administration, maintain accounting records, prepare financial reports and budgets, assist with grant applications and strategic planning, and liaise with the external auditor.  Applications from all backgrounds are actively encouraged.  

Budleigh Music Festival (BMF), is a registered charity (currently also registered with Companies House but in the process of becoming a Charitable Incorporated Organisation).  BMF holds a highly regarded annual music festival in mid-July in Budleigh Salterton, Devon, comprising 8 days of lunchtime and evening concerts featuring local, national and international performers playing mostly classical music.  We plan to increase our work with schools and the wider community to encourage musical appreciation. 

The Festival, now in its 16th year, attracts an audience of up to 4,000 people from Devon and further afield.  It has a strong community involvement from volunteers, and a loyal group of over 300 supporters.  BMF is currently supported financially through ticket sales, small local grants and donations from our supporters and benefactors but we aim to expand our financial support base.  BMF operates as a small Trustee Board and Management Committee of volunteers, and we employ an Artistic Director (under contract) plus a part-time Administrator. 

The Board of Trustees meets 4 - 6 times a year and the Management Committee meets more frequently, generally every 6 weeks.  Meetings are either face-to-face (in Budleigh Salterton) or via video link.
