Seeking New Directors

We’re on the lookout for new Directors to join our board!

We are seeking 2 – 4 new non – executive directors based in the North of England, who are enthusiastic about queer arts and who understand how cultural organisations can build and support communities and make change.

Andro and Eve’s board of directors are unpaid advisors who strategically guide the organisation to ensure it fulfils its mission to provide opportunities to celebrate queer culture, while providing oversight over its financial sustainability and commitment to inclusion, access and equality.

You’ll be joining the board at an exciting time for Andro and Eve as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, creating opportunities for South Yorkshire communities. With new partnerships in development, and existing partnerships strengthened, we will continue to establish our national reputation as producers of high quality, accessible queer culture, with community building at the centre of our approach.

It is a unique opportunity to help support a dynamic South Yorkshire arts organisation and build connections with likeminded people.

We understand that you may want to get involved for a variety of reasons, and welcome applications from people from a range of sectors, backgrounds or experience levels. Previous experience of board membership is not essential but you should possess strong communication or team building or leadership skills or have strategic management experience.

Directors should be able to commit themselves to the role for a minimum period of 2 years. You will be expected to attend quarterly board meetings as well as additional, shorter meetings as required to the demands of the company. Currently, board meetings take place on early evenings at the start of the week via Zoom.

We are interested in hearing from people with at least 2 years experience working in a professional setting and who have experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • Business Development or leadership, including those in the corporate sector.
  • Financial Management or Planning.
  • Fundraising / Partnership development in Third Sector including Cultural Organisations  
  • PR and Marketing
  • Human Resources / People Management

This role is offered on an expenses only basis, with the understanding that you are giving your time to grow and develop the work of Andro and Eve. Travel costs can be reimbursed.
