Sheffield Theatres Search for New Trustees
7th June 2017
Sheffield Theatres is currently seeking new Trustees to join its Board and work alongside the leadership team to help shape the future of the organisation.
Under the leadership of Dan Bates as Chief Executive, Sheffield Theatres is the UK's Regional Theatre of the Year for an unprecedented third time this year. Last year, the Board appointed Robert Hastie to the role of Artistic Director and his first production, Julius Caesar, recently opened to critical acclaim. The largest theatre complex outside of London, Sheffield Theatres comprises the iconic Crucible, the Studio and the Victorian splendour of the Lyceum. It produces and presents a diverse programme of work, including classic and contemporary drama, musicals, comedy, opera and dance on each of its stages. Last year over 400,000 people attended Sheffield Theatres. Sheffield Theatres is seeking Trustees with a diverse background and senior experience from the education, business, environmental, creative and digital sectors. We particularly welcome applications from disabled and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates as they are currently under-represented on Sheffield Theatres Trust's Board. Applicants will work with the leadership team to provide clear strategic direction to the organisation, setting overall policy, defining goals, setting targets and evaluating performance, they will demonstrate excellent communication skills and they will also have a good understanding of local, regional and cultural agendas. The posts have been advertised in the media and online at sheffieldtheatres.co.uk. Applications will close on 22 June.
