Could you us help navigate a post-Covid world with big challenges and great opportunities to build on our reputation for creativity, entertainment, diversity and outreach?

We’re looking to recruit a Chair of the Board of Trustees to lead us into a post-Covid era.

Our current Chair Nigel Hugill has been with us since 2012 but is standing down now his term has come to an end.

The successful candidate is likely to have demonstrable experience of leading an organisation through a significant strategic transformation, and to welcome the opportunity to do that at the RSC.
