Inspiring and changing young lives through music

Future Talent has been inspiring young lives and musical talent for nearly 15 years.

Founded with the aim and ambition of supporting gifted young musicians from across the UK, aged 5 to 18 years, who, due to financial hardship, low educator aspiration and lack of opportunity would otherwise struggle to realise their musical potential. We listen to the needs of young talented musicians, and through our Young Musicians Development Programme support and develop them both as musicians and as young people.

We have had the privilege of watching many of these young people grow, not only as musicians but also into young adults with a sense of purpose, enthusiasm and confidence

Specifically, we seek to increase funding significantly to enable our work to find and nurture more young talented musicians in the future.

To accomplish this as our new CEO, you will need to demonstrate that you are a passionate advocate for music, music education and our mission. You will have the ability to develop our funding and support networks, represent Future Talent externally to ensure broader recognition and build our internal capabilities around musical talent development, effectively leverage the Board and supporter network. We are also looking to build new partnerships to broaden our links and reputation. 

You will be ambitious and entrepreneurial, with energy and vision. You will have the ability to communicate the work, success and ambition of Future Talent and be able to engage as naturally with high-profile supporters as with the charity's beneficiaries. This ability to communicate, with both passion and a sense of pragmatism where appropriate, is vital. Our new CEO will have a working knowledge of music education and be able to manage and motivate people effectively. Experience of fundraising, management of finances, policies and PR will also be required.
