Directors, The Royal Standard
Deadline: 21 Apr
The Royal Standard currently operates its programmes and activities through a team of between 4-6 Directors. These roles are voluntary and provide an opportunity for early career arts professionals to gain valuable experience of curating, project management, exhibition planning and budgeting in an established arts organisation.
The role is versatile and always changing; the Directors work as a team to meet the needs of the local arts community, whilst also ensuring the stable running of the organisation.
Activity at The Royal Standard is divided between the presentation of a public programme and studio member engagement. The exhibition programme aims to deliver a minimum of 4 shows per year, alongside a public programme of events and workshops.
The studio programme devises and delivers opportunities for artists and members of The Royal Standard community. This is in conjunction with organisational development including residencies, studio member exhibitions and crits. It is the responsibility of Directors to develop, plan and deliver each programme.
A crucial aspect of the Director role consists of ensuring and actively contributing to the continued running of the organisation, including long-term planning, fundraising, marketing and operational maintenance.
It is imperative that a Director is able to work in collaboration with the other Directors and wider team: from contributing to key decisions relating to the running of the organisation to collaborating on programme planning and delivery.
All Directors are asked to contribute 2 days per week but TRS can be flexible in understanding everyone’s needs, existing commitments and approach to their individual tasks while with The Royal Standard.
During your time at The Royal Standard, you will learn key skills in the running of a organisation, growing your own skills in the art sector and learning new ones as you go.
The role is subject to a 3-month probationary period. For the full job description and person specification, visit the website.
