Trustee

The Stained Glass Museum is governed by a Board of specialist Trustees, who bring a wealth of experience and expertise to the Museum.

The Stained Glass Museum (charity no. 1169842) is currently recruiting Trustees to join its governing board. This is a voluntary role. We are looking especially for individuals with professional experience in any of the following areas:

  • Development & Fundraising
  • Museum & Heritage
  • Education & Outreach
  • HR
  • Marketing

Deadline: Friday 23 August 2019

Experience of working in a similar committee or charity is not essential but may be useful. Knowledge of stained glass and/or museums is not required for this role, although an interest in art and heritage is desirable.

Trustee Role description and particulars

This is an exciting time to join the Board of Trustees, since the museum is currently developing a strategic masterplan for the museum’s future development. This two-year project entitled ‘Windows onto the Future’ (spring 2018-spring 2020) is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund grant through the Resilient Heritage scheme.

The Stained Glass Museum is a successful small independent accredited museum and holds Full Accredited status with the Arts Council (574).
