New Chair and Directors needed for CG
Create Gloucestershire (CG) supports people and organisations in the cultural and creative industries in Gloucestershire and introduces new people to arts, culture and creativity.
CG has a network of over 670 people, organisations and venues in the sector and acts as a the creative catalyst, marshalling the right people together and harnessing their unique talents and assets to make new things happen. The step from networking to collective action sustains engagement and sets CG apart from being a talking shop.
We are looking to appoint a Chair and up to 6 new Directors to lead and support the organisation as it enters a new phase as one of Arts Council England’s National Portfolio Organisations. This provides an exciting opportunity to shape and influence the organization as it shifts to having a wider national role with a higher profile.
CG’s aims are to: • Lead and support the highest professional and quality standards across our network. • Attract, support and retain the best and most diverse talent. • Provide access to education, knowledge and skills that help our network engage with the challenges and opportunities of a rapidly changing world. • Build a body of knowledge and facilitate collaboration, research and innovation in practice.
CG is a not for profit company limited by guarantee. It has a small executive team and a Board of Directors. We are currently looking to recruit Directors with experience in one or more of the following areas: Health and social care, marketing and digital technology, data and impact measurement, financial management, cultural policy making, design and international cultural activity.
We are keen to hear from people from under-represented groups as part of our ambition that the Board of CG represents and reflects the diversity of Gloucestershire in 2018.
