Chair and Trustees - Ardent Theatre Company
Deadline: 13th July 2018
Ardent Theatre Company is looking for new Trustees to support us in the next new and exciting stage of our development, having secured funds for our next set of acting workshops and a production slot at the Kings Head Theatre in 2019.
Set up in 2015, Ardent's mission is to make theatre a place where no one feels like an outsider. To achieve this we strive to solve some of the socio-economic barriers that prevent audiences and performers alike from accessing professional theatre work.
The company is performing at Soho Theatre from 31st July to 4th August (www.sohotheatre.com/shows/ardent8-sacrifice), giving an opportunity for new Trustees to see the work prior to officially joining the board in September.
To help us grow we are looking for people with skills in any of the following areas:
- Marketing and in particular digital marketing.
- Theatre production.
- Fundraising and/or finance.
- Social Sector work in particular knowledge around social mobility and class.
We are looking for one applicant to act as the new Chairperson, someone who might be looking for an opportunity to lead and nurture Ardent as we begin to expand and raise our profile.
Board meetings are held quarterly, usually on Thursday from 6.00pm – 7.30pm near Chancery Lane, London.
We are particularly keen to achieve a more diverse board of trustees, and we welcome applications from all sections of the community.
To apply, please send a CV and personal statement why you would like to join Ardent and why you are most suited.
Please also email if you have any questions or would like to arrange an informal chat.
Closing Date is Friday 13th July with interviews in the following 2 weeks.
