Job Description

The current Director of Live Music Now Scotland was appointed at the date of its founding in 1984, and has led LMN's activities in Scotland ever since. In March 2025, she will step back from that position. In recent years, the tremendous success of LMNS has led to high levels of activity which stretch the small team of staff to the very limits of their capacity; the former Director will remain in a part-time consultancy role focusing on fundraising to broaden and strengthen our relationships in this important area; also to continue to co-ordinate the activities of Live Music Now International. This arrangement will be reviewed after the first year and annually thereafter.

The role of Chief Executive, therefore, will encompass all the other duties and responsibilities: reporting to the Chair and Board of Trustees, providing strategic leadership and operational management to deliver the overall vision of LMNS. The Chief Executive leads the staff team, holding overall responsibility for the financial management and growth of the organisation, ensuring continued high standards of musical excellence and project delivery, and for the development and promotion of LMNS's profile with stakeholders and funders.

This role is hybrid in terms of location, split between the the office in Edinburgh City Centre and home working, with travel across Scotland as necessary.
