Wirksworth Heritage Centre Calls for New Trustees

Wirksworth Heritage Centre is an independent heritage charity, based in Wirksworth, a Derbyshire town with a strong sense of community and an important history.  We are looking for 3 new Trustees to take the centre into an exciting future over the next five years.

We are developing a new heritage centre building for Wirksworth, with a confirmed grant of £1.3Million from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to help us tell the story of Wirksworth through excellent visitor and community facilities, education programmes, events and exhibitions.

We are looking for individuals who are creative, strategic thinkers, have heritage, activity planning, fundraising, marketing or project management experience, and who can help us manage our charity successfully.  Board level experience is useful but optional – a ‘hands on’ commitment is more important. We are also keen to involve people who have used our centre in the past.  The positions are voluntary, and board meetings are held in Wirksworth monthly.

This is a wonderful opportunity to use your business skills in a new environment, and make a real difference to the future of Wirksworth’s amazing heritage.

To register an interest for the position of Trustee, please contact us for an information pack, or for just an informal chat to find out more by email to: joanna.faulkner@wirksworthheritagecentre.org   closing date for expressions of interest for a Trustee role is 3rd March 2017
