Board of Governors

The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland is Scotland's national Conservatoire and an international leader in the provision of education from early years to doctoral level in dance, drama, music, production and screen. The breadth of our provision is unique in the UK, encompassing as it does all genres of the performing arts. A leading research institution, the Royal Conservatoire is also one of the busiest and most exciting performing arts venues in the UK. International in outlook, we recruit students from some 50 countries.

Our Board of Governors, which is responsible for the strategic direction of the Conservatoire, is seeking applications from individuals who would be willing to join the Board as non-executive Governors and/or members of Board Committees. As the Board wishes to draw on as wide an experience base as possible, and because we seek to achieve a balanced membership in terms of equality and diversity, applications from all sections of the community are welcome. The Board would particularly welcome interest from individuals who are, or have recently been, active professionally in the performing arts at a senior level and from those who have leadership experience in the promotion of access to higher education, particularly in and for the performing arts.

These challenging and rewarding roles are not remunerated, but expenses are paid.

If you are interested in contributing to the success of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland by helping to shape its strategic vision as a Governor, you should send your CV and supporting statement to: Ewan Hainey, Secretary, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, 100 Renfrew Street, Glasgow G2 3DB, from whom further details about the role of Governor are available. Should you wish to discuss the role informally, please call Mr Hainey on 0141 332 4101 or email

Closing Date: Monday 12th December 2016.

Short-listed candidates will be invited to meet the Chairman of the Board of Governors, the Principal and other lay Governors to discuss their application.
