Trustee vacancy – Historic Royal Palaces
The Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport wishes to appoint a Trustee with expertise and experience in historic buildings conservation and/or developing the potential of heritage sites to the Board of Historic Royal Palaces. The successful candidate will contribute to the governance of the charity and the delivery of its objectives. Applications are encouraged from all sections of the community to help ensure that the Historic Royal Palaces board is representative of the diverse society it serves. Historic Royal Palaces would particularly welcome applications from individuals who are based outside of London.
Historic Royal Palaces has a fundamental charitable commitment to help everyone learn about the palaces in their care and the stories that they hold. It shares its work with the public on-site, off-site and on-line, and in many ways – for example through public programming, formal and informal education programmes, outreach activity and as an Independent Research Organisation. We work in partnership with schools, arts and theatre groups, community organisations and many more. We are award-winning and regarded as internationally-leading in the heritage sector, and we want to build further on this record of achievement.
Board meetings are typically held in one of the Palaces, and this will include Hillsborough Castle in Northern Ireland. Depending on the circumstances at the time, Board meetings may be held by videoconference.
The time commitment is typically the equivalent of about one full day per month, although more might be required from time to time. This currently includes four half-day Board meetings, an annual strategic review session, other sub-committee meetings as necessary, plus time to study papers and to attend events.
Closing date for applications is 12noon on 25 February.
