Trustee (Finance) - Music Therapy Works

West Midlands, UK
Closing on 5 August 2024

We are partnering Music Therapy Works (MTW) an independent charity based in the West Midlands, whose mission is to deliver comprehensive music therapy services for individuals, groups and communities in a wide range of circumstances.

Music Therapy is an evidence-based psychological clinical intervention, delivered by therapists who are trained to Masters level and registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). 

MTW provides music therapy to support and enhance communication, self-expression, and wellbeing. They work in a variety of settings including schools, hospitals, care homes and hospices to help people whose lives have been affected by injury, illness or disability through supporting their psychological, emotional, cognitive, physical, communicative and social needs.

We are seeking a new Trustee for MTW with Finance Experience to join their current board and support the CEO to bring new insight and skills to set and approve the strategic direction of the charity.

As a trustee you could provide advice and support to the Chief Executive in developing and delivering this new strategy, with the potential to benefit the lives of thousands of people through music therapy.


  • Being a trustee means making decisions that will impact people’s lives and make a real difference to our community.
  • Trustees are the people who lead the charity and decide how it is run. They play a vital role in helping to define and develop the work of the charity.
  • Trustees work alongside the management team, using their skills and experience to help the charity to define and achieve its strategic aims. But they do not undertake the day-to-day work of running the organisation.
  • Trustees are also Directors of MTW as it is both a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee.
  • Trustees give their time on a voluntary basis. They are not paid fees, but they can claim reasonable expenses.

MTW want their Board to reflect the diverse community that MTW supports. We would particularly like to hear from you if you reflect MTW’s beneficiaries. For example: are you a disabled person? Do you have mental health needs? Are you a parent or teacher of a young disabled person, or a young person with mental health needs? Are you part of an adoptive family or do you work with children in care? Are you a carer for a person with dementia?

Whether you’re an experienced trustee or wanting to take up your first position at board level, we really want to hear from you! It is not necessary for you to have previous experience as a Trustee - training will be provided. 

For more information, please contact Sandra Smith, Associate Director, Charisma Charity Recruitment.  Your application should include your CV and supporting statement.

We welcome and encourage applications from people of all backgrounds. We do not discriminate on the basis of disability, race, colour, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, age, veteran status or other category protected by law.

Hours: Meet four times a year, on Monday evenings and hold an annual away day.

Closing date for applications: 5 August
Interview date: 6 September
