Role

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.
