The New Forest Heritage Trust is seeking a trustee to join its board.
Trustees are accountable for the charitable objectives of the New Forest Heritage Trust, which operates the New Forest Heritage Centre, ensuring that the Centre achieves its mission in an ethical, transparent, accountable, and prudent manner. The objectives are to describe and illustrate the historical development and distinctive nature of the New Forest for the public benefit.
Since successfully becoming a free entry museum in 2016, our footfall has increased seven-fold; we now welcome over 200,000 visitors a year. We are at a crucial point and will shortly be undergoing a transformative redevelopment project and require trustees who can help us through this.
An expert in buildings management and maintenance or in project management would be very useful for this time.
The role will require a commitment of up to 3 hours per month, for example to attend meetings, events and to support the charity more widely. Trustee board meetings are held six times a year at the New Forest Heritage Centre; you may also be required to attend sub-committee meetings.
