Arts & Business Scotland (A&BS) is working in partnership with the William Grant Foundation to deliver New Voices: Fresh Perspectives; a recruitment programme to place young people on arts & heritage boards. This will recruit 12 young people (aged 18-30) in early stages of their careers and from a wide range of sectors, on to the boards of cultural charities.

The participating individuals will undertake an intensive training programme on the roles and responsibilities of Board trustees, and will then be matched with arts and heritage sector organisations who recognise the need to change the dynamics of their current boards, to address equalities, inclusion and diversity and have a representative voice of the stakeholders, beneficiaries, target audiences and users that their organisations service and support.

As part of the programme, selected organisations will undergo a governance health-check to ascertain that they have the systems, processes and infrastructure to embrace the rationale and need for diversification.

If this is a priority for your organisation, then follow the link to the A&BS website to download a placement request form and register your interest:

Please note that this opportunity is FREE to arts or heritage charities registered in Scotland.

Deadline for return of trustee placement register of interest form – 16 December 2019.
