Scottish Youth Theatre: Board Member

Closing date: Mon 11 Dec 2023: 6pm

Join Scottish Youth Theatre in their mission to collaborate with young theatre artists to create experiences and events that reverberate in their lives, their communities and their country.

Scottish Youth Theatre is inviting expressions of interest to join their Board at a pivotal period of the company’s development. They are seeking up to five new Board members to strengthen and diversify the current Board and succession plan for 2025 when two longest serving members will have fulfilled the maximum tenure. This includes the current Chair who is open to discuss the role of Chair with individuals who may have a particular interest in the position.

These are unpaid roles with reasonable expenses reimbursed. Previous Board experience is not essential and training will be offered if required.

First and foremost, they want to recruit Board members who are committed to the work and ambitions of the company and who will meaningfully contribute to their governance and strategic development. They particularly welcome expressions of interest from people with knowledge and experience in areas of:

> Equity and inclusion
> Finance
> Environment
> Marketing / PR
> Legal

In their commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion they want their Board to reflect Scotland’s diverse communities and therefore particularly welcome interest from:

> Black and People of Colour
> Disabled people
> People under the age of 35
> Those based or with a strong connection to areas of Scotland outside the Central Belt
