The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland is a national and international centre of excellence for the performing arts. Building on our roots in 1847 as the national academy of music, we are now one of Europe’s most multi-disciplinary centres of performing arts education. Through our innovative curriculum, we offer highly specialised education in and across the art forms of music, drama, dance, film and production. Our innovative undergraduate and postgraduate curricula combine intense specialist study of the highest quality with opportunities for student choice and artistic collaboration across our various disciplines, thereby educating our graduates as versatile, employable professionals. The Conservatoire was recently ranked among the world’s top three performing arts institutions (QS World University Rankings).
The Conservatoire is one of the busiest arts venues in Scotland, with around 500 public performances each year, in our own performance spaces, in external venues and in collaboration with Scotland’s national companies and the BBC. The Conservatoire’s School of Music has around 630 Higher Education students across undergraduate (BMus, BEd Music) and postgraduate (MA, MMus, PhD, DPerf) programmes.
The Head of Artistic Planning will be responsible for managing and developing artistic planning for the School of Music and will contribute towards artistic strategy and planning across the Conservatoire, including School of Music public events and other high-profile internal and external performances involving music. The role will support the aspiration of the Conservatoire to extend the growing geographic reach of its programming throughout Scotland and beyond.
The successful candidate will have extensive professional experience as an events manager with an in-depth knowledge of music performance, repertoire and artists, and excellent communication and ambassadorial skills.
