The Board of Trustees are critical in setting and overseeing Craft Central’s mission, and work with the staff team to lead on and enact the vision for the organisation’s future. You don’t have to have previous experience as a Board member or Trustee, and not all our Trustees are from an arts or culture background. What we do want are diverse, enthusiastic and committed applicants who believe in the fundamental value of crafts and culture, and who are able to apply their particular skills and life experience to this dynamic organisation, with its broad business model that enables us to support contemporary craft in the UK.
HOW TO APPLY
Firstly, please read the Recruiting New Trustees PDF Article on this page. Then to apply, please email Peter Cload, Company Secretary via firstname.lastname@example.org with your CV and a covering letter. Please detail your particular skills and experiences; an outline of your reasons for wanting to become a Trustee of Craft Central; how you meet the skills and experience we’re looking for; and how you would act as an advocate for Craft Central and the charity’s interests. Please mark in the subject box "Trustee Recruitment".
We invite applications by 12 noon Tuesday 20th July 2021. Applications received after this time will not be considered. If you would like to know more about this opportunity, please contact Peter with the subject line ‘Trustee application query’ in advance of the application deadline.
Shortlisted prospective Trustees will be invited to interview with a small group of Trustees and the Director in September, with a view to taking up a position from October 2021.
