Chair of Audit Committee and Member of Audit Committee

Conservatoire for Dance and Drama

The Conservatoire for Dance & Drama is seeking Independent Governors to join its Board in overseeing the transition of the Conservatoire Schools into new and independent arrangements. We are looking to appoint two individuals, a Chair of the Audit Committee and a member of the Audit Committee, who have board experience and who are passionate about the performing arts. This is an opportunity to gain non-executive experience through a fixed term appointment, supporting an organisation which offers world-leading conservatoire education and training to talented young performing artists and production professionals.

The Conservatoire currently comprises six member schools who provide world-leading education and specialist vocational training in dance, drama, circus arts, and production arts: Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, Central School of Ballet, London Contemporary Dance School, National Centre for Circus Arts, Northern School of Contemporary Dance, and Rambert School. Recent changes in the higher education landscape have fundamentally altered the dynamics between the Conservatoire and the schools and have led to the schools pursuing independent pathways. The Conservatoire and the schools are now working closely with each other and with the Office for Students (OfS) to set each on its own path and to perform an orderly wind-down of the Conservatoire, with transition to the new arrangements no later than July 2023.

The Conservatoire’s priority remains to deliver the highest quality training to our students for their forthcoming careers and for the artistic, cultural, and economic benefit of the UK, and to ensure continuity for students into the new arrangements.

Chair of the Audit Committee

The Chair of Audit Committee will lead the Committee’s work during the transitional period, ensuring the Conservatoire continues to fulfil its obligations to its regulators. The Chair of Audit Committee will have a professional background in audit and finance in either the public, private or charity sectors. They will be a strong and competent communicator with experience of financial governance, compliance, risk management, engaging with auditors, and interpreting complex information. Experience of financial management in relation to higher education and government funding is desirable. The successful candidate will bring passion, leadership, and commitment to the vision of transitioning the Conservatoire Schools to their newly independent existences.

Member of Audit Committee

The Audit Committee membership encompasses a range of skillsets and a member of Audit Committee need not necessarily be from an audit or finance background. They will be able to demonstrate an understanding of governance in complex organisations, awareness of the principles of public life, and a strong commitment to higher education and the performing arts.

All Independent Governors are expected to demonstrate a willingness and ability to devote the necessary time and effort to attend Board and other meetings, including preparing and reading for those meetings, and to participate in the effective governance and management of the Conservatoire.

Key relationships

Chair of the Board; Chair of Finance Committee; Independent and Nominated Governors; Director of Finance and Operations; Academic Registrar and Accountable Officer; Conservatoire Secretary.

Commitment

The Audit Committee normally meets four times during the academic year (in September, November, February and June). The Board normally meets four times during the academic year (in November, March, May and July).

The normal time commitment is estimated approximately one day per month, although this may vary depending on the amount and urgency of business arising. This includes regularly touching base with the organisation between meetings.

Appointment

The appointment process will involve a meeting with the Conservatoire’s Director of Finance & Operations, Joseph Lowe, followed by a panel interview. The selected candidates will be appointed to the Board as Independent Governors and as Chair or Member of the Audit Committee.

The Conservatoire does not remunerate its Board members, although reasonable out-of-pocket expenses will be reimbursed. The position is for a fixed-term period to the closure of the Conservatoire as a Higher Education Provider, Charity and Company, by November 2023.
