Young Board Member Call Out

Common Wealth are recruiting two new Board members from Bradford between the ages of 18-30 to represent young people. These new Board members will be passionate about making political contemporary theatre and will help us to understand the creative landscape from the perspective of young people. 

About you – Board members will provide direction and challenge to the leadership team and will play a major part in shaping Common Wealth for the future. You will gain experience of leadership, build your knowledge of financial, HR and organisational processes and input into the creative plans and ambitions of the company. As a Board member you will have knowledge and personal experience of the creative sector. This could be as a student, creative practitioner or someone who has worked in the arts. Prior experience of being on a board is not necessary, you will be paired with an existing board member as a mentor for the duration of your term to support you in your work and be given support in reading board and finance papers 

About being on our board – Our Board meets at least four times per year, with some additional time required to review papers. Being a board member is an unpaid, voluntary role, although your expenses will be covered including any travel or access support.

Interested? Please have a look at our Young board member call out info sheet for more details. We will also be holding a ‘What is it like to be on a board’ session with current board members Aina Khan and Lisa Mallaghan on Wednesday 3rd of February at 6pm if you would like to ask any questions or discuss what it is like to be on a board. The zoom link for this Q&A session is here –
