Job description
 
This organisation supports anonymous recruitment. That means hiding your personal identifying information, removing bias from the hiring process.

Making Space is seeking a Treasurer from October 2022 onwards.

We are a craft organisation based in Havant, Hampshire, with impact across the UK.
We literally make space for people and organisations involved in craft, whether physically in our own building or digitally in our virtual networks and events.
Raising the profile of craft in all its forms, we work with local and national arts organisations, contributing to debate, supporting makers and providing opportunities.
As the lead craft organisation in Hampshire, Making Space initiates opportunities for new networks and partnership. This includes working with local arts organisations and contributing to regional and national development around craft and community engagement. Our specially tailored projects inspire, challenge, skill-up, engage and build new audiences for the sector.
Making Space is all about excellence in contemporary craft, design and the visual arts. We support makers, creating opportunities for people to develop design and making skills. We believe that being involved in high-quality craft increases people’s wellbeing.
From our purpose-built studios in Leigh Park, we deliver courses, masterclasses and projects through which children, young people and adults can learn from skilled and experienced makers. It houses seven individual studio spaces that are leased to professional makers producing high quality work, as well as two fully equipped workshops that are available for hire, either as creative spaces or for business meetings.
We are an organisation of contrasts, where high-quality craftspeople create beautiful things from contemporary studios alongside local people experiencing craft for the first time.

We are aware that an important step towards our goals is strong and diverse governance so that we can ensure our voice is meaningful and relevant to a broader community than we are currently addressing.

We are therefore actively seeking new Trustees from the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic community who will help reshape our governance and be our ‘critical friends’ as we seek to engage with makers dealing with cultural, political and societal issues and a formal and informal education landscape increasingly devoid of creative opportunities.

We are seeking someone with a financial or accounting background who could take on the role of our treasurer.

Applications are encouraged from candidates from across the UK, regardless of sex, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, age, religion or belief, and from the broadest range of personal and professional backgrounds.
