HarrisonParrott Foundation is looking to appoint a Treasurer/Finance Trustee to join its Board of Trustees, who will support the Foundation with developing and implementing strategy and maintain oversight of budgetary and financial reports.
The Treasurer will provide support and guidance to the Board and work closely with the Foundation Secretary on financial issues, including assisting with the annual accounting process. The Treasurer will lead the Board’s duty to ensure due diligence and that proper accounting records are kept, and that financial resources are invested in line with governance best practice and any legal requirements.
As a small organisation, the role of a non-executive is primarily strategic, although the Treasurer will be willing to assist and guide on operational issues which further develop the HarrisonParrott Foundation’s funding base and access to sources of funding and widen access to the arts for all.
Application closing date: Thursday 30 September
About HarrisonParrott Foundation
HarrisonParrott Foundation is the philanthropic arm of HarrisonParrott, long recognised as one of the world’s leading arts management companies, and has at its heart our mission to support and champion diversity and inclusion within the arts.
We believe everyone deserves access to the arts. We want to challenge preconceived assumptions of what the arts are and who they are for. As passionate advocates for innovation, we want to challenge the idea that ethnicity, gender, disability and social background are impediments to full inclusivity
Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2019/20, HarrisonParrott has long been recognised for its innovation and continual questioning of the role of an artist management company. By forming the Foundation, the Company hopes that others will be encouraged to follow suit so that the industry as a whole collectively tackles the serious issues of diversity and access to training in the music industry.
HarrisonParrott Foundation has initially partnered with Tri-Borough Music Hub and Creative Access to develop a series of programmes to help tackle issues of diversity and inclusion. Coming out of the incredible difficulties of the last 18 months across all of the arts, the Foundation now wishes to continue to identify and develop new partnership projects and programmes to play a role in leading the performing arts into the future and how we engage with wider society.
