Sheffield Doc/Fest


Salary: Voluntary

Sheffield Doc/Fest is inviting applications for three new voluntary Trustees to join its Board.

We are currently looking for Trustees who will work with the Board, Festival Director and Senior Management Team to help oversee the governance of the festival including all legal, financial and compliance aspects. And to help deliver a strategic vision for the charity over the next six to ten years. In particular we would welcome applicants with previous experience of charity governance, cultural festivals, social enterprise, independent theatrical film, visual and digital arts, public arts institutions, academia, community engagement and learning & participation.

More generally, the role of the Trustees is to act as public advocates for the festival nationally and internationally and to be on hand to help problem-solve where necessary.

We are looking for people who are not only passionate about non-fiction storytelling but are also committed to championing diverse stories told by diverse storytellers.

Our jobs are like our festival, open to all. We welcome applications from across all the nations and regions of the UK and from appropriately experienced younger people, LGBTQI+, community, D/deaf, disabled, or people of colour.

The Board meets four times a year with additional ad hoc meetings if required. Meetings are currently held remotely. The role is voluntary, though travel / expenses will be covered.

The closing date for this position is 22/03/2021 at 12:00
