The Atkinson Development Trust – Trustee Recruitment

The Atkinson Development Trust – Trustee Recruitment

Want to join The Atkinson Development Trust Board?
The Atkinson Development Trust is a small charity, run by a small, committed group of skilled volunteers who have a shared love of The Atkinson. We are looking to recruit some new Trustees to join our Board.

What we do
We raise money – from individuals, businesses and funding bodies – in order to support The Atkinson to use its heritage and art collections to connect with people. We aim to:
– Have a positive impact on local people’s lives
– Connect people with local stories
– Improve access to the collections and the building

How we work
We meet monthly, usually from 5-7pm, either at The Atkinson or Southport Town Hall. Our meetings have an informal atmosphere in which all individuals are invited to contribute to the discussion. We want people to actively participate, be heard and feel valued for their knowledge and ideas. As well as attending meetings regularly, Trustees need to be willing to take on some individual responsibility outside the Trust’s meetings to advance ideas which the Trust have agreed to. We work supportively with The Atkinson to expand and enhance their work. We do not work directly with beneficiaries and we do not influence the programming or running of the venue.

What we’re looking for
We’re looking to recruit three Trustees who will contribute the energy, enthusiasm and expertise we need in order to grow and thrive. We’re particularly interested to hear from people with skills / experience in:
– Fundraising
– Law, including charity law
– Marketing
– The arts and heritage sector

For information on how to apply, a full role description, or to arrange an informal chat to start with, please email us at and we’ll get back to you. Or you can ask at The Atkinson’s welcome desk for a printed copy of the information.

Deadline for applications: Friday 30 August, 2019
We think being a Trustee is rewarding, but please note this is a completely voluntary, unpaid role.
