Liverpool Irish Festival have vacancies for trustees, including a Treasurer, on their Festival Board and are keen to hear from people who are interested in becoming involved, or who can help them find new members.
The Liverpool Irish Festival (LIF) brings Liverpool and Ireland closer together using arts and culture. It delivers a diverse, high quality and often ground breaking programme each October. LIF is a charitable company, whose Directors are its Trustees. These volunteers come together as a Board to lead the charity and decide how it is run.
LIF’s current Board is looking to recruit skilled, experienced and enthusiastic individuals to help guide and support the organisation through its next exciting phase of development. Ideally new trustees will have experience of the cultural sector, a familiarity with Liverpool Irish arts and culture and/or skills in digital applications.
Trustee roles are unpaid and requires a time commitment of, on average, half a day per month. This includes attendance at the Board and sub-committee meetings, Board development workshops and strategic planning events. The meetings generally take place in the early evening.
LIF’s current Treasurer is retiring and so they are also looking for a replacement who will put their finance skills to good use by becoming a charity trustee. The Treasurer will monitor, review and report on the financial aspects of the Festival and help to ensure its sustainability, working with the Festival Director and its accountants to ensure the Festival’s financial affairs are legal, constitutional, and within accepted accounting practice.
Applications to become a member of the LIF Board should be made by submitting your CV and a one-page letter describing how you meet the criteria. Submissions will be understood to have read the Policy Pack and Articles of Association, linked below.
Please email your submission to [email protected] by 31 Jan 2019.
Interviews will take place by arrangement with shortlisted applicants in February 2019.
