Regional Screen Scotland are seeking a forward thinking, proactive and creative charity sector leader to drive them forwards into a new phase of our development following the impending retirement of their current Chief Executive, Robert Livingston, who is planning retirement in the autumn.

RSS aim to enable more people in more places to share great screen experiences by bringing the cinema experience to people, working towards a concept of Universal Cinema, and at the core of their work is the Screen Machine mobile cinema service which, since 1998, has been bringing high quality cinema experiences to up to 50 communities a year.

They are keen to engage with candidates with a strong track record within the third sector, and experience and/or knowledge of the cinema exhibition sector. They are looking for a leader who can present a compelling vision of how to develop our reach, advocate for cinema-going, and explore new funding models to build upon  core funding from Creative Scotland, in a way which aligns with RSS core values around collaboration, community, responsiveness and inclusivity and delivers on our business plan. An interest in how cinema can make a difference to communities, and effectiveness as a strategic and people leader, either as a CEO or in a leadership role, is essential too.
