Handmade Parade CIC is a renowned outdoor arts company that co-creates community happenings, parades, giant puppets and illuminated spectacles. We aim to make magic out of the everyday, create memories that last forever and transform how people see the world, their community and their place within it. We have Arts Council England funding to undertake organisational development and we have big plans, but need some enthusiastic, imaginative and helpful people to give expert advice and practical support. Now is an exciting time to join our board of directors to help shape the company for the future and support our return to activity.
We are looking for a variety of individuals from different backgrounds, with different experiences, skills and interests to bring to the company. We are particularly interested in hearing from people with:
- Finance skills – you may currently work in a financial role or you may have retired from a role where rigorous financial management was a core aspect of your job;
- Fundraising – you may work as a fundraiser or have extensive experience of it as a key part of your work in the arts or any sector;
- Professional arts experience – you might be an outdoor arts professional, though we welcome interest from people across the cultural sector;
- Community engagement and communication – you might work in a volunteer management role, have knowledge of community engagement or expertise in digital communication.
Please email an expression of interest – a maximum of 500 words (or a short video or audio file) telling us about you, what you bring and why you’d like to join the board. If you have previous experience of a similar position, please let us know. If you don’t have previous board experience, that’s not a problem. We will offer training to all our board members.
Please submit your expression of interest to email@example.com by midnight on Monday 2nd August 2021.
