Liverpool Irish Festival is looking for new trustees

Since 2003, the Liverpool Irish Festival (LIF) has brought Liverpool and Ireland closer together using arts and culture.  As a charitable company, LIF relies on enthusiastic and committed trustees to set our strategy and future direction.  They have  the  opportunity to offer significant influence within a key Liverpool institution.

We are looking for up to 4 skilled, experienced and enthusiastic individuals to join our Board to guide and support the organisation through its next exciting phase of development. You will help us become more sustainable through the growth of commercial income, audience development and funding opportunities. We  are particularly keen to hear from applicants with skills or experience in business development, fundraising, and finance. Ideally, new trustees will have experience of the cultural sector and  a familiarity with Liverpool Irish arts and culture. Applications will be particularly welcome from underrepresented groups, such as (but not limited to) young people, BAME, LGBTQI+ and women.

Our trustees have strategic vision, independent judgement and a willingness to give time and commitment to the Liverpool Irish Festival. Trustees  normally commit to 10 Board meetings a year. The meetings generally take place in the early evening.

Our current Trustee with financial responsibility is retiring and so we are also looking for someone who will put their finance skills to good use on our behalf. This Trustee will monitor, review and report to the Board on the financial aspects of the Festival.

For an informal discussion please contact: John Chandler – Tel: 07762 943697.  Expressions of interest should be made by submitting your CV and a one-page letter setting out the skills, experience and networks you could bring to the role, and why you would like to serve on the Festival Board, to Closing date 30th June 2020.
