Board Director


Due to retirement, we are currently seeking individuals to join our Board of Directors. We are looking for a range of skills. In order to complement and enhance the existing skills of current Directors, we are particularly seeking, but not exclusively Directors who have professional experience in the following sectors:

  • Experience within fundraising and income generation
  • Business Management
  • Community Diversity

As a member of our Board, you should be able to demonstrate a commitment to the performing arts, with a particular interest in the New Wolsey Theatre. All Directors are expected to attend Board Meetings (usually four each year), Press and Guest Nights and Supporters events, and become part of specific Task Groups, relevant to their expertise, if required. Our Directors are ambassadors for the theatre within the community and regularly support the work of the theatre through attendance at various performances, including produced productions, visiting work and the work of our creative learning team.

As an organisation committed to equal opportunities, we welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons from all sections of the community. We would particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) and D/deaf and disabled individuals, as BAME and D/deaf and disabled people are currently under-represented on the Board. We would also welcome applications from individuals under the age of 30.

If you are interested in becoming a part of our Board, please submit an up to date CV and a supporting statement outlining why you are particularly interested in joining the Board of Directors of the New Wolsey Theatre and how you feel your skills and/or experience fulfils one or more of the above criteria.
