Music is an essential part of most people’s lives. At Music in Hospitals & Care our vision is that live music is an integral part of everyone’s health and social care.

Every year our professional musicians share live music with many thousands of people across the UK who may not otherwise get to experience it. This includes those living with dementia, who have mental health problems or who are seriously ill.

We are now looking to recruit an additional finance trustee to our Board of Trustees, providing an opportunity to combine a love of live music with your accountancy and financial expertise.

The charity has a dedicated Head of Finance on its Senior Leadership Team, who manages the day-to-day financial operations, and there are presently two experienced qualified accountants on the Board of Trustees, one serving as the Treasurer. Due to a forthcoming retirement, there will be a vacancy for a new finance trustee to join the board and also be a member of the Finance and Audit Committee which meets remotely three to four times a year.

Preferably you will have an understanding of charity finance and investment in addition to your accountancy qualification, but we welcome hearing from any experienced accountancy professionals who are passionate about the work the charity does.

We welcome applications from people across the UK with relevant expertise and experience who have a passion for our cause, an interest in committee work and a willingness to get actively involved in helping to deliver our vision. You don’t need to have experience as a trustee or being on a board before – we offer a comprehensive induction programme and training and development opportunities as appropriate.

We adhere to high safeguarding standards, and successful applicants will require to undergo a basic criminal records check before taking up post.

We are committed to becoming an organisation which reflects society and promotes diversity and inclusion, and would particularly welcome applications from people who are currently under-represented on the Board, including disabled people, those from Black, Asian and other minority ethnic communities and people aged under 50.

Please look at our recruitment pack to find out more about the role. This includes links to our online application form and equality and diversity monitoring form – complete and submit these by Monday 27 June 2022 to be considered.

You can find information on how to apply at the end of this pack. If you would like to have an informal discussion with an existing Board member before applying, please email ria@mihc.org.uk.
