Recruitment for a Chair of the Board
Travelling Light is a theatre company and children’s charity based in Barton Hill, Bristol. We create outstanding theatre for and with young people that inspires their thinking, engages their emotions and fires their imaginations. Since 1984, we have sparked the creative journey of over one million children and young people in our locality of Barton Hill, throughout Bristol and beyond.
Do you share our belief that every child has the right to create, imagine and experience great stories?
Do you have experience of governance from being on a management committee or from a management/leadership role?
And would you like to bring your experience to make a real difference to a Bristol based charity and the young people we work with?
We are looking for a Chair who can lead the Travelling Light Board and support the company through the crucial next phase on our journey as we emerge from the Coronavirus pandemic and develop the company’s next four-year business plan.
Our current Chair is stepping down after completing a full term of service on the board, and the new Chair will join the board this autumn and begin the role in January 2022.
Travelling Light works with a very wide range of children and young people from diverse ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds, who are both disabled and non-disabled, and with a range of lived experiences. We are seeking to develop a trustee board that is more representative of the communities that we serve.
The Chair will advocate for the organisation with authenticity through sharing the story of the company’s work and impact. You do not have to have a background in the arts or come with an existing arts network but should demonstrate a commitment to Travelling Light’s work creating and sharing inspirational stories through theatre and providing creative opportunities for children and young people.
