The Association of Independent Museums is recruiting a new Board member with financial experience who can help meet our goals of supporting our 1,300 members with the challenges and opportunities ahead, growing our membership, and running a sustainable charity.

Now that AIM has secured 2023-26 Arts Council funding, which supports core costs as well as funding programmes, the Board has decided to focus on growth in order to become more resilient in our business model, offer greater networks and services to our members, and represent our members even more effectively. In 2027 AIM will achieve a milestone ‘birthday’, fifty years after being established. Over the coming years our Board will guide us through building on our history and the successes of recent years to work for and with our members in running their museums.

We are looking for someone with financial / accounting experience to join our engaged and skilled Board and help us meet these exciting goals.

We are particularly interested in appointing a Board member with the following experience and expertise:

  • Financial management / accounting background with the experience to advise on financial matters and take a strategic approach to financial forward planning,
  • Experience of charities and governance would be advantageous, but not essential,
  • An accountancy qualification is desirable, but not essential.

Please read the information provided in this pack and consider what you might be able to bring to our Board>>

Please send your application to Director, Lisa Ollerhead, at by 12noon on Monday 29 April. Please also contact us if you would like a chat about the Board and your candidacy before applying.
