An inspirational charity is seeking an inspirational CEO. The Amber Trust is a unique charity, dedicated to funding music opportunities for blind and partially sighted children and young people.

‘The support from the Amber Trust is the best thing that has happened to our son’

At The Amber Trust, we believe that visual impairment and other disabilities should not prevent children and young people accessing appropriate musical opportunities.

The Amber Trust was founded in 1995 and has grown to become the only UK-wide charity dedicated to supporting vision impaired children with their musical development and education. We aim to enhance the lives of as many of the 25,000 vision impaired children in the UK as possible through music, and to promote high quality music provision for them.

The Amber Trust has an annual income of around £400K with which it provides music services or financial support to over 600 beneficiaries, and free resources to thousands of others. We employ a small administrative team and a UK-wide network of practitioners who support us in delivering music lessons, music awards, concerts, workshops, resources and research.

The Chief Executive Officer is responsible to the Board of Trustees for leading The Amber Trust, developing and realising Amber’s vision and strategy, and playing a key ambassadorial role with funders and other senior stakeholders. The CEO is responsible for the management of the charity and its staff and the execution of Amber’s targets, plans and policies, ensuring that resources are used to best effect in meeting the needs of beneficiaries. The CEO is responsible for initiating and overseeing new initiatives that will ensure Amber plays a leading role in the field of music and blindness in children and young people into the future.
