Art, culture, change: We are recruiting for new members to join our Trustee Board

Home > Vacancies > Art, culture, change: We are recruiting for new members to join our Trustee Board

Metal was founded in 2002 and is active in Liverpool, Southend and Peterborough. We put the development of artists and their ideas at the heart of our buildings and at the top of our agenda. 


“2022 will be Metal’s 20th anniversary. It’s an important moment to take stock of our achievements and look to the future. What does the sector need from us in these challenging times? What do artists and creative communities need from us? How can we bring our unique model to support artists and the creative industries in the drive for a just and green recovery?” – Chair Jude Kelly OBE


We are looking for exceptional and dynamic individuals to collaborate with us on this journey, hoping to recruit individuals with a range of perspectives and experiences so that our Board can be as representative as possible. We strongly encourage applications from people of African, Caribbean, East Asian, South Asian, and South East Asian heritage, D/deaf, neurodivergent, disabled, as well as those who identify as LGBTQI+ or experience barriers due to their socio-economic background. We welcome applicants from all walks of life whether you are an experienced board member or have never been on a board before. As a Trustee, you will have the opportunity to stimulate change and innovation in the sector, enjoy creative camaraderie and make a real difference; lending your skills, expertise and unique perspectives.


As is usual for charity Trustees, this is an unpaid, voluntary role. Expenses incurred as a result of taking part in Board business (travel, caring or support costs) will be reimbursed. Further information about person specification, benefits of becoming a Metal Trustee and time commitments are in the Trustee Recruitment Pack.


Closing date: Monday 7 December 2020, 5pm
