Trust Description

The New Zealand Ukulele Trust | Te Rūnanga Ukurere O Aotearoa is a not-for-profit organisation that uses the ukulele to enrich children’s lives with music.  Each year we help young people at schools get involved in music by delivering resources, training and events to children across Aotearoa.  Our programmes include Kiwileles, Ukes in Schools, and Ukulele Squads. We also run workshops for teachers and students across New Zealand.


Job Description

We are looking for committed, passionate board members to join the New Zealand Ukulele Trust Board. The Trust is going through a period of adjustment as we look to move our focus away from the annual New Zealand Ukulele Festival and concentrate on delivering our programmes more widely across New Zealand.  We are seeking three new Trustees, including potentially a Chair, to join us on the next exciting phase of our journey. Trustees need to have an energetic and creative approach to building up this important organisation, and ideally be able to commit to a term of at least two years.

Trustees are expected to attend 6-weekly meetings via Zoom.  This is a voluntary (unpaid) position.  It is estimated that the position of New Zealand Ukulele Trustee will take up six hours per month.


Ideal Applicant

We are looking to develop the strength of our Board, so whatever your skill strengths we would encourage you to apply.  However, we would be particularly interested in hearing from people with experience in any of the following areas:

  • Funding and fundraising
  • Education, specifically music education
  • Experience in, or interest in IT


The Board is seeking to diversify our lens, in particular across Māori and Pasifika perspectives, although we encourage all interested people to apply.

How to apply

Please express your interest by sending a cover letter and your CV FAO: Maria Winder, Chairperson, NZ Ukulele Trust 


In your cover letter tell us the relevant skills and experience you would bring to theTrust.
