Find Out How to Join the Arts Derbyshire Team and Become a Trustee

Arts Derbyshire became a registered charity in 2019 and we are looking to recruit new TRUSTEES to help support and steer our work. 

Could you help support Arts Derbyshire in delivering its charitable objectives, or share these opportunities with friends and colleagues?


Typically, the commitment will be for 6-10 hours a month, depending on the membership of working groups. This can include attending a monthly meeting, approving new policies and procedures, taking part in a choice of working groups where relevant (Finance, HR, Equality, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI), Fundraising and Website) and overseeing our work. 

The Board of Trustees carries out six main functions collectively to support and steer the organisation. Trustees are expected to: 

  • Ensure Arts Derbyshire is carrying out its purposes for the public benefit
  • Comply with Arts Derbyshire’s governing document and the law
  • Act in Arts Derbyshire’s best interests
  • Manage Arts Derbyshire’s resources responsibly
  • Act with reasonable care and skill
  • Ensure Arts Derbyshire is accountable to its members, the public and the Charity Commission
  • Undertake short-term roles as and when necessary for the running of the charity. These are taken on in a voluntary capacity and within a flexible time frame.

The Board of Trustees works as a team, making joint decisions. You and your trustees will be responsible for deciding and planning how the organisation carries out its purposes.

As a trustee you will decide together what activities Arts Derbyshire will undertake and think about the resources it will need. 

Collectively, you will take responsibility for setting the charity’s strategic aims and direction, and agreeing appropriate future plans, operational structures and governance.

Meetings are currently held on Zoom. Please note, experience in the arts is not essential.

Please send us a paragraph explaining why this voluntary role interests you, what you feel you could offer Arts Derbyshire along with a copy of your CV via email to our Administrator, Hannah, at by 4pm, Wednesday, 26th October 2022.
