What will you be doing?

The Trustee will assist us with business planning and strategy, helping us to remain a financially robust organization which can also take considered risks in the delivery of our creative output. They will be expected to attend and prepare for virtual quarterly board meetings, reviewing relevant materials and reports beforehand. And will also be invited to represent the charity as a champion of the organisation at selected events, such as production premiers. You will be joining a small but experienced team as we seek to diversify our organization to reflect the diversity of the people we engage in our creative productions.

What are we looking for?

We are committed to developing the diversity of our board to better reflect the diversity of those we collaborate with in our creative output. We therefore particularly encourage applications from women, disabled and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic  candidates. Essential Criteria

Demonstrated financial awareness and knowledge gained through previous work activity. Ability to communicate and explain financial information to members of the Board and other stakeholders. Experience of strategic development and planning. Understanding and acceptance of the legal duties, responsibilities and liabilities of trusteeship. A willingness to learn. Good communication, team-working and interpersonal skills. Tactful, diplomatic and able to build relationships.

Experience of working with arts based charities or educational charities.  Desire to promote and support diversity across our creative output. Interest and / or experience in new technologies.

dreamthinkspeak welcomes all applications regardless of age, disability, gender, pregnancy andmaternity, race, religion or belief, and sexual orientation. We invite applicants to contact us directly toidentify any additional support required. We are interested in candidates who may have a wider range of skills than purely financial. For us, finance is not an isolated practice. It is connected to other aspects of our mission and is part of all discussions around the creation, production and dissemination of our work. We therefore welcome expressions of interest from candidates whose principal practice might sit within other sectors, including the technology and digital industries, but embraces financial experience as part of that practice.

What difference will you make?

We will benefit from your input and advice in the development of the company strategy, business-planning and the diversity of our organisation, helping us to build resilience as we navigate our way through challenging times ahead.
