Board Trustee

Deadline: 30th September 2023 at 23:55

Hidden Door is a volunteer-run charity that operates an annual multi-arts festival in a disused space in Edinburgh. We are now looking for individuals to join our Board of Trustees.

The role of our Board of Trustees is to support the work of the festival and its team of volunteers and ensure strategic oversight of its events and activities. You don’t need to have previous board level experience, but you do need to have a passion for access to the arts and events. We are particularly keen to hear from candidates with experience of any of the following:

To Apply

To apply, please send us either a CV and short statement, or a 2-4 minute video (taken on your phone is fine!) by the 30th September, to explaining why you are interested in working with us and what you feel you will bring to the organisation.

We want to also encourage applications from people who identify as non-binary and genderqueer folk, neurodiverse and disabled, people from BAME backgrounds, people from the queer community, people from working-class backgrounds, and people from all religious backgrounds.

Board positions are not paid, but we will reimburse reasonable expenses to allow you to participate.
