Trustee

Thackray Museum of Medicine

Unremunerated, c. 6 – 12 days per year

Can you join the Board of a museum that changes lives – and helps people to change the world?

With a clear mission to benefit the public, we are looking to recruit Trustees who both represent and reflect that public across a broad spectrum. We are very keen to hear from candidates who have a really good experience of our local East Leeds communities, from younger people and from candidates who bring great knowledge and experience of D/deaf and disabled issues. However, we are by no means restricting our search. We want to hear from anyone who help can bring a dynamic diversity of opinion and background to the table and draw in the knowledge of sectors such as equalities, community resilience, project and risk management, charity law and 3rd sector finance. We are looking for the right balance of responsible governance and creative enterprise to create an environment where our people and stakeholders can flourish and achieve new levels of performance.

The Thackray Museum of Medicine is a museum for everyone covering a subject that touches everyone’s lives. We want that inclusivity and relevance to shine strongest in our Board of Trustees.
