The Peace Museum is the only museum in the UK which is dedicated to the history and often untold stories of peace, peacemakers and the peace movement. Key elements of our work include educational outreach and promoting community cohesion. We use the collection of 7,000 artefacts, banners, posters and videos to inspire people to see peacemaking as an active endeavour.
Based in Bradford, West Yorkshire, but national in scope, the Museum draws trustees from both the local region and across the country.
Trustees currently inadequately reflect the rich diversity of communities across West Yorkshire. We particularly welcome applications from people from a BAME background or those who are currently underrepresented in the arts.
We are looking for trustees with oversight of financial management, HR or with any other specific experience.
A Finance Trustee: with skills and experience in business to work alongside our book-keeper; oversee all the financial processes of the Museum and contribute to the production of budgets and the Annual Report.
A HR Trustee: with skills and up-to-date experience and knowledge of HR. You would ensure that staff and volunteer contracts and working practices are in good order; operational policies are up to date and in use and the Board acts responsibly re. DBS, Health and Safety, GDPR, etc.
Any other experience: We invite you to apply even though you may not fulfil the particular skills and experience above, if you feel that you might make an active contribution to the life and growth of the Museum.
