Finance and Commercial Board Members, Bluecoat

Bluecoat Liverpool’s centre for the contemporary arts is planning an ambitious period of growth and is now seeking two new board members – one with a financial background, one with a commercial background – to support strategic, financial and commercial planning as we develop and expand.

Last year Bluecoat, the UK’s oldest arts centre, celebrated the 300th anniversary of its Grade 1 listed building.  We used the opportunity as a catalyst for change and our ambition now is to create an artists’ hub for the North, underpinned by local talent development and linked to national and international opportunities. In parallel we are developing a business model which will combine a new heritage offer, an effective trading subsidiary and the expansion of our award-winning participation work into other centres in the North West and further afield.  This new business will require capital works to Bluecoat’s Grade 1 listed city centre building.

We are seeking exceptional individuals who are experienced, both in their professional fields and in working as board members, who can contribute knowledgeably to enable us to realise our ambitions.

If you have the relevant skills and would like to contribute to shaping Bluecoat’s future, we would be delighted to hear from you. Please send a CV or summary of your experience and a statement setting out what you would bring to Bluecoat to:

Shortlisted applicants will be invited to interview.

New Members

While we are seeking two new Board Members immediately, we plan as part of this process to create a panel of people from which future Board Members might be drawn.
