Applications for CUMS Student President and CUMS Student Committee 2017 – 2018

Cambridge University Musical Society is inviting applications for the roles of its 2017 – 2018 Student Committee.

The roles available are:

Student President

Publicity Officer

Social Secretary

Archiving Officer

Orchestral Fixer

Student Treasurer

Alumni Officer

The variety of roles on offer ensure that there is a position to suit every skill set, so I encourage everyone to read through the job descriptions to see if anything draws their interest.

Though CUMS is supported by a professional team of staff and advisors, the day to day running of CUMS would be simply impossible without the Student Committee. The success of our wonderful society relies on students stepping up and becoming involved with CUMS on a larger scale. Previous Student Presidents have come from a variety of ensembles, each with a unique vision, and all have changed the society for the better. With last year’s introduction of a Student Committee, there are now more opportunities than ever for students interested in arts management to gain experience working in a large-scale arts organisation. Working to make CUMS a better society is an immensely rewarding experience, and you will be able to see the changes you make having a positive impact at every rehearsal.

Applications for all positions open on Friday 17th March and close at midnight on Friday 21st April. The successful applicant for all roles aside from the Student President will be made based on the merit of their application, and candidates will be informed of their success in the week starting Monday 24th April. Applicants for the role of Student President that have been shortlisted for interview will be notified on Monday 24th April.

I strongly encourage anyone who may feel hesitant or unsure about applying to ask their Ensemble Presidents about the roles, or contact me directly (mp774) with any questions. Please do not hesitate to get in touch – I would love to hear from you!

Very best,

Mathilda Pynegar CUMS Student President 2016-2017
