Job Description

We are seeking four dynamic individuals to join our Board of Trustees who have a genuine interest in Farnham Maltings and are passionate about the arts and all it can offer communities here in Farnham, the South East region and beyond.

Farnham Maltings has a fifty-year history of contributing to the quality of life of the town and region as a vibrant cultural organisation. We have strong relationships with our Local Authorities, Arts Council of England and a range of trusts. Farnham Malting’s mission is to encourage people to be actively creative; connecting with others unlike ourselves; and by articulating new ideas we will foster a happier, healthier, and more inclusive set of communities. We instinctively gravitate to the margins, aspire to be generous, seek out surprising partnerships and delight in working with people who can do things better than us.

This voluntary position would require attendance at four quarterly Board meetings and the AGM. We encourage our trustees to actively support our work, visiting events, performances and various projects throughout the year.

The Board consists of a wide range of professionals who challenge, monitor, advise and work closely with the CEO and management team. In particular we are looking to enrich the current board with people who have experience and expertise in one or more of the following areas:

Arts development, Independent theatre and performance, Community engagement, Finance management, and Legal.

We are keen to reflect our communities by attracting applications from people of all different backgrounds who share our values and our vision, regardless of ethnicity, disability, or protected characteristics.

The Maltings is in receipt of major funding for innovative theatre and art projects, in addition to generating funds from its own resources. The Maltings is run as a company limited by guarantee (954753), with charitable status (305034) and is run as a creative organisation, that works with artists and communities to encourage people to make, see and enjoy the best art possible.
