Who we are and what we do

BAMT is the professional body for music therapy in the UK, providing practitioners with professional support, and both practitioners and non-practitioners with information and training opportunities. We provide a voice for the profession, as well as for those who could benefit from music therapy. As a charity, we are committed to promoting and raising awareness of music therapy, developing understanding of music therapy through providing information to the general public, and supporting the advancement of education, research and professional practice.

What we are looking for

BAMT is a charity and a company. The trustees of the charity are also the board of directors of the company. We are looking for a qualified music therapist with a minimum of 3 years experience and a commitment to the work BAMT does. BAMT is working to increase the involvement and impact of representatives of all within our society and would welcome applications from BAME candidates.

  • Willingness to meet the minimum time requirement to carry out the role described
  • Understanding and acceptance of the legal duties and responsibilities of trusteeship
  • Ability to work effectively and collaboratively as a member of a diverse and dynamic team
  • Good, independent judgment

It is desirable for candidates to have experience of:

  • Charity governance

What’s involved in being a trustee:

  • The Board of Trustees meet 6 times a year between 6-8pm on alternating evenings. Trustees can join these meetings remotely.
  • The trustees may be asked to take on specific roles, for example on committees and working parties, and asked to attend additional meetings if necessary.
  • All trustees are expected to participate in e-discussion and debate in response to a weekly e-digest.
  • Trustees may be contacted by the BAMT core team/permanent staff for support in their specific area of expertise.
  • Trustees serve for a term of three years and may not serve more than three terms without a period of at least a year out of office.

A summary of the primary duties of all charity trustees is attached.
