Hebrides Ensemble is seeking a new General Manager to lead on the strategic and organisational development of the Ensemble.

Reporting directly to the Board of Trustees and working closely with the Artistic Director, the role of General Manager will suit an exceptionally organised, self-motivated individual with a passion for classical music.

Responsible for both short-term project delivery and long-term planning, this is a wide-ranging role that rewards those who love to make things happen, and who can see a project through every step of the way from initial idea to musicians on the stage.

Working with the Artistic Director, the General Manager is responsible for bringing ideas to fruition through effecting fundraising, planning and production, while ensuring the operational side of the organisation runs smoothly and effectively.

The successful candidate will be confident advocating for the Ensemble and enjoy building positive, collaborative relationships with partners, funders, promoters and of course our musicians themselves.
