New chair opportunity

The National Jazz Archive is seeking to appoint a new Chair of Trustees in 2022.

The Archive, formed in 1988, is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) which aims to safeguard and celebrate the rich cultural heritage of jazz in the UK. The Archive holds the UK’s finest resource of printed and visual jazz-related material, along with an important collection of oral history recordings. It is of national and international importance.

The Board currently comprises 11 trustees. In November 2021 the Board renewed their strong commitment to diversity and inclusivity.

A number of long-serving trustees, including the current Chair, have decided to step down. This is with the aim of refreshing the Board and facilitating the development of a Board which is more diverse and inclusive. All the trustees, including those retiring, are committed  to giving ongoing support to the Archive and to ensuring a smooth transition.

The closing date for applications is 1 June 2022.

Working for the past, present and future of jazz.
