Chief Executive Officer

About the role

Federation of Scottish Theatre (FST) is the membership and development body for professional dance, opera and theatre in Scotland, bringing the sector together to speak with a collective voice, to share resources and expertise and to promote collaborative working.

The FST Board, which is elected from the membership, is now seeking an ambitious new Chief Executive Officer with strong strategic, influencing and facilitation skills to lead the organisation in advocacy, support and strategic development for the sector at this time of significant challenge and change.  The events of recent months mean FST is well-positioned for the new CEO to have a real opportunity to help shape and shift the industry as well as the organisation to meet the demands of the new strategic and operational environment.

FST supports and promotes flexible working.  We are more concerned to find the right skills than to specify hours for this role.  We welcome job-share applications and proposals for other approaches including fewer than 35 hours per week.

Please note this is a re-advertisement of a position advertised earlier this year. Previous applicants will be contacted by our appointed Search Partners FWB Park Brown and therefore need not re-apply.

The closing date for applying for this position is Friday 20th November.
