The Queen’s Hall welcomes applications from dynamic individuals who will effortlessly take on an outward facing advocacy role, provide strong business contacts and who have a passion for music and the arts.
The Queen’s Hall is one of the key cultural venues in Edinburgh where it has presented live music for 40 years. Its excellent acoustic and intimacy enhance a programme which includes classical, jazz, folk, rock, pop and contemporary music, and it is a key Edinburgh International Festival and Fringe venue. The Queen’s Hall plays an important part in the development of Scottish musicians and audiences – it is a music hub for the city and beyond.
Current Chair, Nigel Griffiths, who leads a strong board encompassing a wide range of skills, is stepping down following a successful tenure that established The Queen’s Hall on a secure financial, operational and artistic footing. We now seek a Chair to build on this and take forward our ambitious new Artistic and Fundraising Strategies with the current CEO.

Inch Community Association will be launching an exciting new youth programme at Inch House this autumn to cater for the needs of local young people, aged 7-11. We are looking for a dynamic, energetic, enthusiastic and experienced youth worker to help us design, launch, manage and lead it. The post holder will work within a small team of staff and stakeholders and manage a budget in order to set up and develop the wider youth programme.
Inch Community Association is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) committed to the advancement of community education, citizenship and community development within the Inch district in Edinburgh.
We are based in Inch House in the south of Edinburgh, a 16th/17th century tower house and A-listed building of exceptional historical importance, which stands in extensive parkland and gardens and serves as the community centre for the adjacent Inch district.
It is a time of great change for Inch House. We are currently preparing a Community Asset Transfer application to Edinburgh Council to secure the building for the local community. As part of this process, we aim to create a more dynamic and innovative community hub which will more effectively serve the changing aspirations, wishes and needs of local people.
Inch House is much loved by local residents and the wider community, and a concern for the future of the building and its history is central to our mission. We are therefore working to restore Inch House to its original glory, and would like to see it develop as a historical and cultural resource for the Inch and the whole of Edinburgh, through which it can serve as a venue for meetings, community and cultural events, conferences, concerts and exhibitions. Closely linked to this is a concern to foster a greater awareness of history, architecture, cultural heritage and traditional arts within the general community.
