Chair and Treasurer - Wessex Museums Trust
Organisation: Wessex Museums Trust
Vacancy Type: Chair + Treasurer
Deadline: 30th November 2018
Region: South West
The Wessex Museums Trust is seeking a Chair and Treasurer to join our trustee board at an exciting time in our development.
We are looking for trustees who hold strong connections to the region as well as a passion for art, culture and heritage.
The Wessex Museums Partnership comprises the four museums which best tell the stories of Dorset and Wiltshire from prehistoric times to the present day – Dorset County Museum, Poole Museums, The Salisbury Museum and Wiltshire Museum. Together we are a charitable incorporated organisation – the Wessex Museums Trust - and an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation. Our ambition is to inspire more people to explore and enjoy the outstanding art and heritage of our region.
The Wessex Museums Trust is a relatively new charity which supports the work of the four partner museums and more widely, museums across Dorset and Wiltshire. We have an ambitious programme to deliver over the next four years alongside the need to develop our charity into a resilient and sustainable organisation.
We are committed to equality, diversity and inclusion and are particularly keen to achieve a more diverse board of trustees. We welcome applications from all sections of the community. The requirements and desired qualities and experience for the role are detailed in the role profile which can be found here: http://www.poolemuseum.co.uk/wmptrustees
If you are interested in becoming our Chair or Treasurer, we would be delighted to hear from you. Please apply in writing with a letter of interest and a CV, saying which role you are applying for, detailing why you are interested in the role and what skills and experience you could bring to the Wessex Museums Trust.
