Hampshire Cultural Trust

Trustees

Hampshire Cultural Trust (HCT) was established as an independent charity in 2014 to promote Hampshire as a county that offers outstanding cultural experiences to both its residents and visitors.  From museums to galleries to arts centres, they manage and support 23 attractions across the county that were previously operated by Hampshire County Council and Winchester City Council.  They run a huge variety of workshops, classes, events and projects for both young and old, in schools and in communities, with particular emphasis on reaching people who are vulnerable or disadvantaged and would not normally be able to access arts and culture. In addition, HCT care for 2.5 million objects that relate to Hampshire’s rich and internationally important cultural heritage.

The charity is now seeking to appoint three high calibre trustees to join their board and add the vital capacity and expertise needed to deliver a vibrant future for culture in Hampshire.  As a member of the board of trustees you will have the opportunity to make a real difference to people’s lives by helping overall governance, development and monitoring of their strategic goals, and supporting the team and volunteers in the delivery of their programme.

Trustees will need to demonstrate passionate enthusiasm for culture, a collegiate working style and a strong appreciation of the charity’s mission.   The charity is especially looking for experience in the following areas:

  • Fundraising, ideally in the cultural sector
  • Education
  • Digital/IT
  • Business Systems

If you like the prospect of a challenge and can bring fresh excitement and passion to the future vision of the charity, please e-mail your CV and supporting statement in a word format to Jenny Warner, Managing Director, Charisma Recruitment Ltd quoting our reference JO1623.
