Trustee

The Bedford Creative Arts Board of Trustees is seeking enthusiastic and experienced professionals to join them to help develop and support our work.

Bedford Creative Arts creates transformative cultural experiences that directly engage with people from all walks of life. Working with artists and other cultural practitioners we deliver cultural programmes and commissions for diverse communities, in particular those who experience difficulty accessing mainstream cultural activities or otherwise feel isolated or excluded.

We need trustees who can bring innovative ideas and enthusiasm for our values of engage/include/inspire, as well as excellent judgement, to help us to achieve our objectives and take on future challenges.

We operate a rolling recruitment programme but are particularly looking for trustees with business or fundraising development skills and experience.

As one of our trustees you would have the opportunity to support a unique, passionate and driven charity, which has a transformative impact on the communities it works with.

Our Board sets the strategy for the organisation and delegates authority to the Chief Executive for all operational matters. The role is voluntary, with all reasonable expenses paid.

To be a trustee you must be able to attend a 2-hour board meeting in Bedford every 6 weeks, any extra hours or activities are at the discretion of each trustee.

This is both an exciting and challenging time for the Trust and individuals with these skills will boost the already impressive portfolio of talents represented on the Board.
