The Board of Trustees of East Grinstead Town Museum intends to make appointments of new Trustees to join the Board over the coming months and invites applications. We are interested in broadening the basis of our capacity to maintain an active and supportive framework of governance for our charity and the work of the team.
As a Trustee, you will be asked to attend a minimum of 6 half day Board meetings a year. In addition, there may be supplementary meetings and on-going projects which will require a regular time commitment equivalent to approximately one-two days each month. We would be particularly interested in applicants who have experience in Financial Management, Volunteer Development or Marketing Information about the museum can be found on our website www.eastgrinsteadmuseum.org.uk .
The Museum is currently transitioning from a Trust to Charitable Incorporated Organisation status and Trustees will be required to follow the governance standards laid out by the Charity Commissioners – a guide to the role of the Trustee Board can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/the-essential-trustee-what-you-need-to-know-cc3/the-essential-trustee-what-you-need-to-know-what-you-need-to-do.
We would welcome you to discuss these roles informally so please do contact the Chair, Lloyd Richards on 01342 321792 in the first instance. To apply for consideration, please send a letter of interest accompanied by your cv to firstname.lastname@example.org by 31 July 2017
