Cal out for a Chair & Trustees, The Royal Standard

TRS – Call Out For A Chair and Trustees!

The Royal Standard are currently on the lookout for a new Chair and Trustee’s.

The Royal Standard (TRS) is Liverpool’s leading artist-led charity providing opportunities and studio space for our region’s artistic talent. We are looking to recruit a Chair and additional Trustees to help steer the organisation during an exciting period in its development. There are great opportunities for us to expand our reach and provide support for more of the artists we work with. We are looking for people to help us to maximize this potential so we can better deliver on our aims.


TRS requires a leader with vision, determination and passion to help deliver our ambitions for the future. You will Chair a team of 8-10 trustees & work with a team of 6 voluntary Artist Leads who manage our day to day studio and programme of arts activity. As part of its commitment to developing artists careers, TRS also provides affordable studio space for 40 artist members who are regularly consulted and represented by the Artist Leads.


Key to our fiscal responsibility we require a treasurer to oversee our finances. The Treasurer will maintain a strategic focus on our financial resources and their management; working closely with the Chair, other Trustees and our auditors. You will also lead a small finance committee to ensure all monies for multiple projects are accounted for and annual reports submitted. As a charity we have several different revenue streams some of which are restricted funds and grants.

Artists & Arts Professionals

As an artist-led organisation we feel it is vital to have artists’ voices represented that reflect the diversity of practice and experience of those artists we support. We want artists to join our board who value artist-led networks and can lend their experience and knowledge to further the reach and offer support to the activities we champion.

Further information about the roles, along with details on how to apply, are available on this following link:

TRS welcomes applications from people of all backgrounds and would love to hear from applicants who belong to groups underrepresented in the arts.

If you would like to have an informal chat about a Trustee role please send your contact details to Please title the mail ‘Trustee Interest’. We will then arrange for one of our existing Trustees to give you a call.

Applications should be received no later than the 12th December 2021.
