Jazz North is the Strategic Development Agency for jazz in the North of England. Aiming to enrich lives through improvisation, we work towards increasing the profile of contemporary jazz both in terms of providing opportunities for jazz musicians and increasing audience sizes in the North. Established only in 2012, the organisation was awarded National Portfolio status by the Arts Council of England in 2015 and is embarking on the next stage of its development.
At this exciting and challenging time, we have created a new position of Executive Director to provide strategic leadership and ensure robust delivery of Jazz North’s ambitious Business Plan, 2015 – 20. 
The Executive Director will take overall responsibility for the successful delivery of Jazz North’s fundraising, business development, finances, communications, HR, organisational management and legal compliance. 
The Executive Director and Creative Director will form the executive team and will report individually and jointly to Jazz North’s Board. Together they will be responsible for the creative and strategic success of Jazz North. The Executive Director’s focus is to lead on all operational aspects of the Company’s work. 
This is a rare opportunity to play a key role in shaping the development of a young organisation and equipping it to lead the way in strengthening the infrastructure for contemporary jazz.
