We are looking for an experienced Head of Finance to join Bristol Music Trust, a charity responsible for managing the activities of Colston Hall, Bristol’s largest concert venue, and for delivering music education programmes across the city. This is an opportunity to work for a vibrant and creative arts organisation, with responsibility for ensuring high standards of financial management and developing strong financial controls across the organisation.

This year is a time of major change for the Trust as we start a 2 year transformation project in June 2018 to deliver a £48.8m redevelopment programme.  This will see a complete refurbishment of our 2 main Halls and the creation of a new Hall and music education centre in the cellars.  The Head of Finance, reporting to the COO, will play a major role in managing the complex financial model underpinning the project as well as supporting the ongoing financial management of the business during a challenging transformation.  This is the largest arts infrastructure investment project undertaken in the South West for many years and will deliver state of the art cultural facilities of international standing.

The successful applicant must be fully qualified (ACA/ACCA/CIMA), they will be a creative thinker, with excellent communication skills and a positive approach, with the enthusiasm and resilience to meet the varied demands of a busy concert venue, and the ability to lead and inspire a team of finance professionals.  They will have a proven track record in working with budget holders to support business effectiveness, and a confident and analytical approach to financial reporting,

Experience in the charity/arts sector is desirable, but not essential.  This is an exciting time to join us as we enter our transformation period to redevelop both halls in our iconic building.
