Closing date for applications

Who we are

Jumped Up has been producing events around the UK since 1993, bringing touring and homegrown productions and events into a variety of community spaces, including: pubs, churches, community gardens, museums, front-rooms and theatres. We have a base at Peterborough City Library, but we pop up all over Peterborough

The role

​Jumped Up is seeking two people who share our values to join Jumped Up’s Board of Trustees.

We are currently seeking applicants who can demonstrate that they have experience in one or more, of the following roles or settings:

In formal or informal education, or with young people, in youth work or with families.

As a community activist involved in creating change, big or small, in any setting.

As a Human Resources, marketing, or legal professional.

Your experience and skills may have been developed in a professional role, or as a volunteer. The important factor is that you are willing and able to use that knowledge and insight to support Jumped Up’s delivery of arts activity in Peterborough.

In addition, we are actively seeking applicants who identify as being D/deaf, disabled, neurodivergent, or are from a migrant or a Global Majority background. Please see below an overview of the actions we are taking to deliver our commitment to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.

Applicants should also demonstrate that they:

– Are committed to Jumped Up’s purpose and values.

– Understand the leadership role of trustees is to advise and support.

– Are solution-orientated, drawing on lived and professional or voluntary experience.

– Are a reflective thinker who can bring insight and understanding to complex issues.

You do not have to be an expert or professional in arts and culture, or currently in a paid-leadership role to be a Jumped Up trustee.

A passion for arts and culture is needed but doesn’t have to come from professional work. We also recognise that leadership skills can be developed and demonstrated in many different settings, through work, volunteering, lived experience and study. The growth of skills and knowledge can also be part of your journey as a trustee, though training, mentoring and becoming involved in the organisation.

More information is available in the trustee pack and on our website.
