Longborough Festival Opera is a hidden gem of the Cotswolds: an intimate, 500-seat purpose-built opera house, set overlooking the spectacular views of the Evenlode valley, that every summer hosts an opera season that has gained an international reputation. Over more than twenty years Longborough has gone from strength to strength, and now welcomes audiences from far and wide.

We are seeking a part-time Finance Manager to join the team, working closely with the Artistic Director, Executive Director and Board of Trustees to ensure highly effective financial management and controls for the charity. This is a new position, and we are looking for someone with a keen interest in our values who wants an active role in helping us achieve our aspirations.
