New Board Members
Treasurers needed for both companies
Calling all finance specialists: could you volunteer your services to the Grand Theatre?
The Grand Theatre, Blackpool is a 120 year old Grade II* listed Matcham theatre, owned by Blackpool Grand Theatre Trust Limited and operated by Blackpool Grand Theatre (Arts and Entertainment) Limited. Both companies are registered charities. The theatre is now seeking to recruit two new board members with finance skills, as part of our regular refreshment and renewal of board membership. One of these posts will join the Trust and one will join the A&E Board.
The Treasurers will work closely with the Chief Executive and the Finance and Business Manager to help monitor, inform and make recommendations to their respective Boards about decisions relating to the finances of the Grand Theatre. Such recommendations will always be made in line with good practice and in accordance with the governing documents and legal requirements of the charity.
These are unpaid, voluntary roles that offer the reward of working in an exciting, fast-moving environment with a group of fellow trustees from many different walks of life – as well as giving something back to the community. All the theatre’s Trustees are passionate about the Grand Theatre and about enhancing the cultural offer for the people of Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre. Each board meets six times a year.
The Grand is looking for candidates who have a proven track record of financial management, preferably with a formal accounting qualification; have an interest in theatre and/or historic buildings; have an understanding of the responsibilities of the Trustee of a charity; and are able to commit the time to attend meetings and offer support
