Ripon Museum Trust is seeking new trustees to help us realise our vision to use our heritage assets to inspire people to seek a fairer society. It is an exciting time to join our Board as we celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Trust and enter a period of major development with our Inspiration for a Fairer Future big project.
All applications are welcome including people with museum, arts or heritage experience but this is definitely not a prerequisite to joining us. We would especially welcome interest from people with the skills and expertise to help us to develop our people strategy and organisational culture and our financial and commercial acumen. We are committed to ensuring the widest possible field of candidates and especially welcome applications from: women, early career professionals seeking their first governance position and people with protected characteristics under the Equalities Act 2010, as they are currently underrepresented on the Board.
Located in North Yorkshire, Ripon Museum Trust’s mission is to use its unique trio of the Workhouse, Prison & Police and Courthouse Museums together with the collections and the stories they tell to help people explore big issues such as fairness, equality, justice and welfare.
Closing date for applications: 22 August 2022. We will be inviting those shortlisted for an informal discussion in person or online.
