Brunel Museum seeking new Trustees – Deadline Extended!

The Brunel Museum is looking for up to three highly motivated people to join its Board of Trustees.

We are seeking applicants who have a strong personal commitment to education and learning, community engagement, and fostering the objectives of the Museum. We are keen to recruit at least one Trustee who either lives or works in Southwark and the range of skills and experience we are seeking for new Trustees cover:

  • Fundraising
  • Legal
  • Finance
  • Operation and management of small organisations or community hubs
  • Human Resources, in particular equality, diversity and inclusion, CSR
  • Digital technology

That withstanding, we are keen to meet applicants with a wide range of backgrounds and experience in order to provide a balanced and effective Board. We want to broaden the diversity of our Board and welcome candidates that can contribute a diversity of representation and thinking, including people from minority ethnic groups, LGBT+ people, people with disabilities, and those with experience of socio-economic disadvantage.

The Board usually meets twelve times per year, plus an annual ‘awayday’. Meetings take place at 7.00pm (currently on Zoom/Microsoft Teams during COVID-19).

Trustees will be expected to allocate around one day per month to the Museum as a basic although more time might be needed with involvement in projects or specific initiatives.

The appointment is for an initial term of three years, renewable to a maximum of nine years.
