Chair of the Board of Directors — Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society
The Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society is both a registered charity and a registered company and benefits from the strategic leadership of a board that comprises up to seventeen individuals from a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences, three quarters of whom are elected from the Society’s membership. The Chair appointment represents a great opportunity for an exceptional individual to guide the organisation that underpins this world-renowned performing arts phenomenon.
The global pandemic has had a significant impact on the Fringe, the Society and the wider culture and events sector. It is also likely to have a bearing on the strategic direction of the organisation going forward. The new Chair of the Fringe Society will lead the Board and executive team to create a strengthened and more resilient Fringe Society and Fringe. Their leadership will focus on two central priorities, a mixed economy model of income generation and an ambitious programme of digital transformation.
This position is not remunerated, although expenses are covered.
Deadline for applications: Monday 1 March
Interviews to take place: w/c 22 March
