Trustee Vacancy

Trustee Vacancy

posted 15 Dec 2020

Here's some exciting news! We are recruiting a new trustee to take up the voluntary position of Director of Volunteering (a joint role with an existing trustee). The appointed trustee will be responsible for organising the scheduling of volunteers for both front of house and backstage roles and the workload is shared between the two trustees.

As a charity which operates the theatre’s day-to-day activities and a volunteer base of 150 people, we are looking to recruit an exceptional person who will be crucial in ensuring the effective running of each production.

The role involves:

  • Scheduling volunteers according to their availability to ensure full cover for every show, both front of house and backstage.
  • Planning and organising training for new volunteers and preparing them for volunteering at the theatre as well as supporting existing volunteers to expand their range of skills.
  • Communicating with volunteers about news from the Theatre Board
  • Being the first point of contact for the volunteers.

The coordination of the volunteers is mainly done electronically using an online database and communication tools, so having excellent computer skills is a must to ensure you can effectively carry out the role. Whilst there are established processes already in place, there will be plenty of opportunities for you to make your own mark on how the roles are carried out.

Interested? Be sure to email Barbara Boyce (barbara.boyce@jrtheatre.co.uk) by the end of January and we will arrange an initial meeting at the theatre. 

Likewise if you have any questions about the role, be sure to get in touch.

We look forward to hearing from you.
