Phosphoros Theatre is excited to be recruiting for three new members of our board of trustees, including a Chair and Treasurer. We've grown from a weekly drama workshop in a living room to a nationally recognised, industry leading theatre company. We're looking for applicants with specific skills and knowledge and will prioritise individuals with lived experience of forced migration. Candidates will share our love of high quality, inclusive theatre and performance, as well as our commitment to working with, for and alongside refugee communities.
We're looking for applicants with specific skills and knowledge (outlined below) and are particularly interested in meeting individuals with lived experience of forced migration. Candidates will share our love of high quality, inclusive theatre and performance, as well as our commitment to working with, for and alongside refugee communities.
Our Board consists of six individuals and we're looking to grow that to eight. Specifically, we're seeking trustees with professional backgrounds in
commercial finance and budgeting;
marketing, communications and branding.
Applicants do not need previous charity board experience, but knowledge of the charity sector will be useful in the role. We aim to maintain a truly diverse Board comprising experienced trustees and those who are new to the role.
Trustees are unpaid volunteers and must be able to attend quarterly Board meetings. To keep abreast of our work and show support to the community we serve, trustees attend at least one Phosphoros Theatre production per year.
We are looking for trustees that are able to offer at least 4 hours of time to the charity per month. As well as making time to read paperwork in advance of Board meetings, and contributing to other activities as appropriate, for example strategic planning days, fundraising, interviews and specific working groups. Trustees are also expected to provide appropriate support as needed to the executive team.
Board meetings are usually held on weekday evenings in London (occasionally online). We aim to schedule board meetings at least 3 months ahead. Travel costs will be paid if they are a barrier. Trustees have a 1, 2 or 3 year tenure with the Charity, with an opportunity to renew for a second term.
