Consultant Briefs

We are seeking experienced consultants to work with us to develop plans in four key areas of our activity:

  • Communications and Audience Development,
  • Development and Fundraising
  • Engagement
  • Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

The plans will enable the delivery of our ambitious future strategy, developed in 2020 through consultation with a wide range of stakeholders and adopted by the Turner Sims Strategic Board in early 2021. Over the next five years we intend to transform our respected programmed concert hall into a dynamic music hub engaging with diverse audiences.

Details of the four briefs can be found in the documents below. The deadline for applications is Wednesday 7 July 2021 at 5pm, with interviews to take place on 12-14 July. We anticipate work being undertaken with the selected consultants in July and August, with final plans being produced by the end of August.

Applications should be sent by email, with the subject heading ‘Consultant brief’ followed by the title of the brief, to Kevin Appleby, Concert Hall Manager, Turner Sims Southampton at

Please email Kevin Appleby if you would like further information or an informal conversation about the brief in advance of submitting an application.
