The RSNO seeks to appoint a talented conductor to a two year contract, commencing in Autumn 2018. The successful candidate will be capable of rehearsing concerts to a high standard with limited rehearsal time, will be committed to engaging with audiences and the public, and will maintain his or her principal place in Scotland.

The Royal Scottish National Orchestra is one of Scotland's national performing companies, with a track record of award-winning performances, recordings and ground-breaking learning and engagement programmes.

At the heart of the building is Glasgow's newest performance space: an acoustically adjustable, 600-seat auditorium that provides world-class rehearsal and recording facilities for the Orchestra. The RSNO Centre also houses a dedicated education space, the Robertson Learning and Engagement Centre.

From the RSNO Centre we look forward to an exciting era of excellence in performance, education and community engagement as well as an ambitious touring schedule incorporating North America, Europe and Asia.
