FST is the membership and development body for professional dance, opera and theatre in Scotland, bringing the sector together to speak with a collective voice, to share resources and expertise and to promote collaborative working.

The FST Board, which is elected from the membership, is now seeking an ambitious new Chief Executive Officer with strong strategic, influencing and facilitation skills to lead the organisation in advocacy, support and strategic development for the sector at this time of significant challenge and change.
