This is an exciting time to join us and contribute to shaping a bold and inclusive new strategy to support new music makers, performers and promoters to thrive and prosper. We are seeking people who are prepared to work with us to champion new music in Scotland by helping NMS to achieve its vision and objectives.

As a trustee of NMS you will have the opportunity to provide leadership and direction, working with a team to make the decisions that really matter. We are looking for individuals who are passionate about new and innovative music, are strategic thinkers and confident networkers with strong advocacy skills; a willingness to speak your mind and ability to work effectively as part of a team and take decisions on behalf of the organisation.

We would particularly, but not exclusively, welcome applications from people with experience in any of the following areas:
– Accounting (in the charity sector)
– Law (media, copyright, HR, charity and/or contract)
– Marketing/PR (specifically for new music)
HR (public sector experience)
– Risk management (public sector experience)
– Fundraising (specifically for new music)

This role is unremunerated although reasonable expenses will be reimbursed. There are four Board meetings per year plus one development day and a minimum commitment of eight days per annum is required. Meetings usually take place within the central belt, but attendance via Skype is always an option. In addition to Board meetings other contact by email or telephone may be necessary.

Candidates will need to share our deep commitment to the support and development of new and innovative music in Scotland. If you would like to join us in building a vibrant and thriving new music sector and can devote approximately half a day per month in a voluntary capacity, please contact Nicola Henderson (nicola [at] for more information.
