Recruitment of Trustees

We need a Board of Trustees with varied and diverse backgrounds, experiences, and skill sets, who are committed to ensuring that the organisation can deliver on its vision, mission, and aims.  Applications are welcome from everyone who matches the essential criteria.

We are always looking to recruit new members to our Board of Trustees with a broad spectrum of skills to support the general work of the museum.  We particularly welcome applications from people with lived experience that is reflective of our diverse audience, collection, and programme of activity, including disabled people, people from a global majority background, and young people under the age of 25.


We will also be looking for Trustees with skills to support specific areas of the museum’s work; check out the latest opportunities.
