Beam - Call for Trusteeship Expressions of Interest

Beam is an arts organisation based in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, working with Artists and communities to enhance places through the development of unique arts projects. In this, Beam’s 30th year, and under new leadership we are seeking to appoint new Trustees to strengthen the expertise of the board to help deliver its new strategic direction.

Applications are invited from individuals who have operated at a senior level within the public, private and voluntary sectors and who can commit to attending approx. 5 board meetings per year (including a summer awayday session), alongside other pieces of strategic work as agreed with the wider board and as required.

Of particular value would be expertise in: the arts and cultural sector; fundraising; and business development. Understanding of the legal duties, responsibilities and liabilities of trusteeship of a charity would be an advantage, but training will be provided. Beam is an equal opportunities employer and appropriate assistance will be provided to enable suitable candidates to serve.

In accordance with the Charity Commissioner's regulations, no remuneration is payable for these positions, but expenses will be reimbursed.

Please apply by email to Kevin Trickett, Deputy Chair of Trustees attaching a covering letter expressing why you are interested in joining the board and a copy of your full CV:

Deadline Monday 23 May 2016.
