We’re looking to grow our board – we’re looking for trustees with experience in HR, legal, arts and culture, corporate fundraising and environmental sustainability.
acta is steered by an active committee of people who volunteer their time to help guide us. Our trustees are responsible for the overall direction, strategy and vision of the charity.
Over the years, we’ve been really lucky to work with people from all different backgrounds so we’re looking to recruit people who can reflect this, and bring that all important perspective.
We’re also going through a period of change at the moment – with fluctuating needs of the community, and funders, we are looking at a period of transformation. We want people to join our board who can help us steer us on this journey, and keep us on track. It’s an exciting time to join the acta team.
What you would do
This is a voluntary position, and we would ask you to join us for a minimum of 6 x 2hr meetings a year with some additional commitment to working with the acta staff and trustees through sub-committees and informal conversations.
We’d also love it if you could attend our shows and events, and we’d hope you would act as an ambassador for acta where possible. Learn more about our current board here.
How to apply
If you like what you’ve read, and you think you can help us in our vision to change lives through community theatre then we’d love to hear from you.
You can get in touch with us and tell us who you are and what you could bring to acta. We’re open to receiving this in various formats – we know that written communication isn’t for everyone.
- send us an email or letter
- record a short video or audio file (under five minutes long please)
- create a portfolio of your skills and experiences
- anything else you can think of!
We just ask that it can be something we can review in our own time, revisit, and takes less than five minutes to read, watch, listen to, etc.
The next steps will involve an informal discussion with one of our board members, or our Director, Oliver Jones, and we’ll invite you to observe a board meeting.
We very much look forward to hearing from you. Please see below for contact information and do get in touch if you have any questions.
There is no deadline for this opportunity, we will consider each application until we have a full board.
