WHALE Arts, the thriving cultural anchor organisation for Wester Hailes, is seeking a new Chair for its Board of Directors.

Its current Board members are a mix of local residents and non-local residents and have expertise and experience at a senior level in marketing, education, arts and culture.

WHALE invites applications from suitably experienced individuals, but would particularly welcome those with a background in senior management and a track record in developing and implementing policy and strategy.

They also welcome candidates with a strong understanding of the challenges and opportunities of sustainable income generation for building-based community-led organisations with an understanding of the importance of public and private funds whilst also leading WHALE Arts into a future where ambitious social enterprise activity plays a strong role.

Previous experience of charity board membership and a genuine interest in the transformative power of the arts and creativity are essential.
