Area: Wales 

Deadline: Monday 14 December 2020

Voluntary Arts is currently seeking a new volunteer Trustee to serve on its Board and act as representative for Voluntary Arts Wales.

Voluntary Arts operates across the UK and the Republic of Ireland. We currently have 16 staff divided into 5 departments: Voluntary Arts England, Voluntary Arts Scotland, Voluntary Arts Wales, Voluntary Arts Ireland and our Chief Executive’s Department. Our Board of 12 Trustees are also all Directors of the Company limited by guarantee. Positions on the Voluntary Arts Board are not remunerated, although travel and subsistence expenses are paid. The Board of Voluntary Arts meets four times a year. Meetings take place on weekdays (usually Thursdays), with two meetings each year in London for ease and cheapness of travel and the other two meetings taking place in different parts of the UK and Ireland by rotation.

Each department has its own representative on the Board of Voluntary Arts, who typically serves for a period of 3 years. In addition, the Voluntary Arts Wales Chair will work with the staff and Advisory Group in Wales.  

We are looking for someone with the skills, knowledge and enthusiasm to contribute to the Board as a Trustee, and also to work with the Wales department.
