Unpaid roles

 Project Board: Diversity and Participation Member

Tredegar House


We are seeking a new member for our Project Board who is inspired by the potential Tredegar House brings, wants to contribute their own experience and wisdom but can also see the potential to learn from one of the Trust’s most challenging, and potentially transformative, projects.

What we are looking for

We are looking for someone with broad and deep experience and knowledge of participation and working with diverse and minority communities. You may have gained this from:

  • Working within communities for many years, giving you a really practical understanding of how to develop and sustain the aspiration we have.
  • Playing a strategic role in developing new approaches to engaging and diversifying audiences.
  • Playing a leading role in developing new policy or academic research in audience diversification, working with a range of partners and stakeholder groups. Experience of engaging and developing people during a process of change would also be really useful.

We will need to change the way we work to deliver our aspirations and we need to bring our team of staff and volunteers along with us. You don’t need to come from the heritage / cultural sector – we see many benefits of having a completely fresh pair of eyes. However, it is likely you have previously undertaken a similar role on an advisory panel, committee or board. You will enjoy listening, and contributing, to discussions at the Project Board to ensure decisions are well considered and informed. You will be able to challenge our thinking in a positive way but understand the need to maintain momentum in the project. 

If you would like to express your interest in the role please send an email with a brief introduction and why you are interested in this post to: Rhiannon Gamble (General Manager): This email address is being protected from spambots.
