Chair of the Board
After eight years at the Northcott, our current Chair, Lady (Lucy) Studholme, is stepping down this year, having reached the end of her term as a Trustee, and so we are now looking for a new Chair of Trustees.
In light of the current public health emergency, the theatre’s management and Board have acted swiftly to protect staff, volunteers and audiences, and to safeguard the charity.
Just a few days after having been named ‘Arts Organisation of the Year’ at the Exeter Living Awards, we closed our doors to the public as part of the current lockdown, and our team immediately began the work of planning a return to ‘business as usual’ at some point later this year.
It’s against this backdrop, and with an ambitious new Business Plan in place and a number of important new partnership opportunities in development, that we’re looking for an exceptional candidate to join the Board and work with us at a hugely important time for the Northcott.
If you think this sounds like an exciting challenge we’d love to hear from you. Please download the pack below to find out more about the role and how to apply.
Application deadline: Monday 4 May 2020, noon
