Temporary Board Member

Charles Dickens Museum – Posted by Charles Dickens Museum London, England, United Kingdom

Job Description

The Charles Dickens Museum (CDM) is seeking three people to join its non-executive Board in spring 2020. CDM is a fully accredited independent museum (charity no 212172) dedicated to promoting the life and work of Charles Dickens, writer, journalist and social reformer.

Being a Board member of the Charles Dickens Museum is a voluntary, unremunerated role, although expenses (such as travel for attending required meetings) may be claimed. Board members come from a wide variety of backgrounds, bringing with them their experience, skills and expertise to support and enrich the running of the Museum. At the same time, members gain a great deal from their work on the Board in terms of new experiences and knowledge.

The Charles Dickens Museum recognises the value of diversity and is keen to more closely reflect the wide range of people who visit the Museum. We celebrate the role it plays in the creation of an inclusive workplace culture and thrive on the range of experience and insight diversity brings to our Museum. We want to broaden the diversity of our Board and particularly welcome applications from people with disabilities, Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic backgrounds, LGBT+ and from different socio-economic and educational backgrounds, as these are currently underrepresented.

In addition, we are looking for skills and experience in fundraising and supporter development, as well as retail and income generation. We would also welcome applications from people who live or work in the neighbourhood of the Museum (Bloomsbury, Holborn, King’s Cross / St Pancras).
