General Manager

29 October 2020

Following a period of improved financial stability, the charity seeks a talented and dynamic General Manager to lead the organisation as we significantly scale up our activities to meet our ambitious objectives.

The General Manager will lead the Oxford Bach Soloists (OBS) through an important phase of growth and development, in close collaboration with the Board of Trustees, Development Board, and Artistic Director.

The General Manager will require involvement in all areas of the charity’s work including finance and company management, domestic and international touring (sales, logistics and delivery), recordings, strategic development, education and fundraising.

In close collaboration with the Artistic Director, Tom Hammond-Davies, the successful candidate will work remotely, reporting directly to the Board of Trustees, and will engage with other local freelancers, fundraisers, supporters, and artists to deliver OBS’s ambitious programme of concerts, education, touring, and recordings.

Eligible candidates will be invited to interview with members of the Board. Due to the ongoing pandemic, interviews will be held remotely and on a rolling basis until such time as the role is filled.

Choral Scholarships


In response to the coronavirus crisis, we are suspending the Choral Scholarship recruitment cycle for one year. No new Choral Scholars will be appointed for the period from September 2020 to August 2021.

We hope to resume recruitment after Easter 2021 for Choral Scholarships 2021-22. These scholarships will provide an opportunity for young aspiring singers to develop their solo singing within the musical programme of the Oxford Bach Soloists.

Our Choral Scholars will sing in concerts with the Oxford Bach Soloists across the academic year from September to August. They will make up the core of the chorus and help to maintain its musical integrity, and develop their talents by taking on the challenges of step-out solos during our concerts. German language coaching will also be provided as part of their training.

If you have already registered your interest, we will write to you as soon as applications are open.
