Following the appointment of Michael Mansfield QC as Chair of the Everyman & Playhouse, we are now recruiting new Trustees to the board.
We are in the midst of a programme of major change, and the board will be key to achieving our ambitious artistic vision and business plan for the next five years and beyond. The ideal Trustees will bring experience and openness; rigour and imagination; challenge and enthusiasm.
The immediate priorities are:
1. Financial Expertise
This Trustee will also act as Chair of the Finance Committee and of our trading subsidiary and will be key to our financial resilience and growth. S/he will be a qualified accountant and have extensive experience of financial strategy, business development and risk management. Experience of the charity sector would be helpful but is not essential.
2. Marketing/Communications expertise
This Trustee will also act as a director of our trading subsidiary and will be key to achieving our goals for income and audience growth. S/he will share our passion for inclusivity and will bring extensive working knowledge of current and developing practice in marketing and communications.
For these two roles, we hope to appoint individuals based in or very close to the Liverpool City Region. We would particularly welcome interest from people from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds, who are currently under-represented on the board. Above all, our Trustees need to be passionate about our work and our community, and to relish the prospect of giving their time, energy and expertise to help achieve our ambitious goals.
If you are interested in a board-level role with the theatres but your area of expertise is not one of the above, we would still like to hear from you, as further places will become available in the near future.
These roles are voluntary, but reasonable expenses in attending meetings can be paid, and complimentary tickets are provided for all e&P productions to enable trustees to keep abreast of our work. A Trustee’s usual term is three years, with the possibility of extending by a further three years by mutual agreement.
If you are interested in joining us as a Trustee, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
