Trustee Recruitment

We’re always open to being approached by people who might add value to our already vibrant and effective Board.

Whether you’re an experienced Trustee or wanting to take your first step at Board level, we want to hear from you! As a value-led organisation our priority is to recruit Trustees who share our outlook and vision. We’re looking for people who can demonstrate a strong commitment to Purple Patch Arts’ values of Humanity, Passion, Creativity and Authenticity; people who care about what we do and who want to contribute to it.

It’s not necessary to have previous Board experience as training will be available; we exist to support people to reach their potential, and that means Trustees too! We’re mainly interested in finding out who you are and what you might bring to the charity. We’re looking forward to meeting some new people and will support you to develop in the role.

We welcome applications from people from all walks of life, and we particularly welcome applications from disabled people, people of colour and young people as we understand the importance and value of a diverse Board. We are actively seeking to increase the diversity of our Board to reflect all the communities in which, and with which, we work.
