Recruitment: Co-Chairs of the Board

A wonderful opportunity to join the Board of one of the UK’s leading theatre companies.

Because our work is about highlighting women’s experiences and providing gender-specific services to women, all of our positions are open to women only (exempt under Equality Act 2010 Schedule 9, part 1).

Our Board is made up of inspiring women from many different walks of life, working collaboratively to ensure we hold our vision and mission at our heart and make a significant difference in the lives of women affected by the criminal justice system.

We are looking to match two women who together can share leadership, who between them have some experience as a trustee with familiarity around charity governance, and who both feel alignment with our passions for social justice and the power of theatre. Ideally, they will also be comfortable representing the charity publicly and engaging with our diverse range of stakeholders.

We have considered the specific skills and experience across our whole board of trustees, and identified two key elements that we would like to see for our new Co-Chair partnership.

  • We are looking for a woman who embodies the stories we tell on a personal level - to us, this means we are seeking someone who has lived experience of the criminal justice system and can bring this valued experience and perspective to the work of the company and the change we seek for women.
  • We are looking for a woman who has a strong leadership voice from our theatre sector – someone who has been/is in a senior role in a cultural organisation and who understands the industry and the opportunities and challenges we face.

You don’t need to have an arts qualification, or a university degree or college education, or have achieved a particular level of work experience to volunteer as a trustee.

The deadline for submitting expressions of interest for this role is noon, Monday 26 February 2024.
