We’re looking for passionate and enthusiastic individuals with a variety of skills and experiences to join our Management Group as Board Members (Voluntary).
This is a fantastic opportunity to make an important contribution to the development and sustainability of this programme. Passionate about the arts and enthusiastic about the regenerative effect that arts and culture can have for communities, Transported Board Members will have a wide variety of skills and experience, along with an ability to plan ahead strategically to ensure the long term sustainability of the Transported programme. Working closely with representatives from the lead organisation and the existing team, Board Members will act as advocates to place Transported firmly in the hearts and minds of potential local and national partners, as well as the surrounding community.
For an informal discussion, please call Dennis Bell on 07984 947799.
How we’ll ask you to be involved
We’re committed to this being an exciting opportunity for Group members. There will of course be core meetings – no more than 6 of them per year for us to come together, plan and undertake the essentials of governance for a project of this scale and nature. Each member of the Management Group is selected, in a non-executive capacity, to assist in the governance of the Transported Management Group, a subcommittee of Leisure in the Community.
However as a Group member we’ll ask you to draw on your passion, interests and skills to help us outside the meetings, benefitting from your specific fields of expertise. We might ask you to host an event with local partners or with potential investors in the project. Or it might be simply representing the project at particular meetings with people from other sectors.
We’ll schedule our meetings where we can to coincide with our major events so you can get to see the results of some your efforts, and so you can see for yourself the impact of the high quality artwork on local people and communities.
We’ll be able to offer your expenses as appropriate for things like your travel and accommodation.
