Why join us?

In 2023 we updated the Trust’s strategy and also celebrated the 50th anniversary of the museum in Richmond.  As a result, we now want to look to the future of the Green Howards Trust to ensure that we can continue to thrive and maintain our core vision for our community and visitors in perpetuity.  This will involve embarking on a fundraising campaign to raise £2 – £3 million pounds over the next 5 – 10 years.

As a trustee, you will have the opportunity to help us deliver our strategic aims, as well as contributing to a thriving and sustainable future for the museum. You will help to shape the Trusts future direction and development in line with our current strategy.  As a board, we are welcoming and open to new thinking, and are keen for people with a wide range of skills and experience to be involved in our work. We aim to make your experience as a trustee both rewarding and enjoyable. By joining us, we hope that you will have the chance to use your expertise to make a real difference to the museum and local area.

Who are we looking for?

We are recruiting a trustee with fundraising expertise and experience, who can guide us on our campaign, and who is forward thinking, open-minded, willing to contribute their time and effort, and who has an affinity with the army and an interest in heritage.

However, if you are interested in this role and feel that you have different skills to contribute, such as commercial, visitor experience, retail and HR, please apply, as all applications will be considered.
