Highbury Opera Theatre announces Chair/Trustee to step down after three years


Our current Trustee/Chair, Henry Busiakiewicz, who has held this position for the last three years, and has steered HOT through the pandemic and its most recent production, will be stepping down. We are therefore looking for someone who would be willing to become a Trustee and new Chair of the company. 

Vacancy: New Trustee/Chair - Closing Date 30th May 2022

This is a great opportunity for someone who has a desire to be involved in community led projects. The key aim for the volunteer in their role as trustee and chair will be to lead and work together with the other Trustees in supporting the committee and HOT’s creative team and guide the charity through its next creative phase by helping them in curating, developing and delivering the new production through to its conclusion, namely, the successful staging of the opera.

What are we looking for?

  • The volunteer we are looking for would ideally have the following qualities:-
  • Management skills in context of small organisations or charities 
  • Ability to lead, motivate and work as part of a team
  • Willingness to take collective responsibility for governance of the charity
