Finance and Resources Director | London Symphony Orchestra

The Finance and Resources Director has primary responsibility for all aspects of the management of the LSO’s finances, including two charities and two trading subsidiaries. This responsibility ranges from strategic planning to modeling and analysis (eg on new initiatives). Supported by the Head of Finance and the finance team, who manage all day-to-day processing and reporting, the Finance & Resources Director is expected to have an in-depth understanding of the LSO’s finances and to advise on a range of financial matters. .

Other areas of responsibility include HR (managed by the Head of People), IT (managed by the Head of Technology), premises, legal, insurance, health and safety, risk management and wider strategy. In many cases, oversight and being a sounding board is all that is needed, whilst at other times more detailed involvement is required.

This diverse role offers a unique opportunity at the heart of one of the UK’s most prominent and successful performing arts organizations as a key member of LSO’s senior management team. It would suit an experienced individual from a charitable or commercial environment who is seeking new challenges, or a talented individual seeking to make a step up from a similar role in a smaller organization. An interest in orchestral music or the performing arts is an advantage, but not essential.

The successful candidate will be able to quickly get to grips with the wide-ranging nature of the LSO’s work and the breadth of the role. They will build confidence in their ability to provide appropriate advice and support to the Board, Managing Director and colleagues across the organization.

Salary: Competitive + benefits.

The closing date for applications is 10am on Monday 20 February 2023.
