The Glasshouse International Centre for Music


Job Reference EBLTA
Closing Date Wednesday 10 Apr 2024

The Glasshouse International Centre for Music is a home for live music lovers. Based in an iconic Norman Foster designed building on the banks of the Tyne in Gateshead Quays, the charity serves more than two million people a year for gigs, concerts and classes across the North East, nationally and internationally.

The Glasshouse has an abundance of creative energy and plans for the future. We know that culture will be at the heart of the North East’s new era as a devolved region, with a new Mayor and new confidence. Together with partners and peers, we’re set to play our part.

We’re looking for a new Chair to lead our Board as we head into our third decade. Could it be you?

As well as providing clear strategic direction and leadership to the Board, our Chair will play a key role as an ambassador, advocate and fundraiser, promoting and championing the organisation to external contacts and bodies, including bringing a national perspective and profile to the charity. You don’t need to be based in the North East, as long as you are inspired by The Glasshouse’s vision, mission, values and programme and bring a passion for how much music can change lives.

Saxton Bampfylde Ltd is acting as an employment agency advisor to The Glasshouse International Centre for Music on this appointment. For further information about the role, including details about how to apply, please visit using reference EBLTA. Alternatively telephone +44 (0)20 7227 0880 (during office hours). Applications should be received by noon on 10th April 2024.

Whether you’re making it up or taking it in, you’ll find music lives and grows here.
