Who we are
We are an arts charity that works with dance professionals and people across the region to make the South East region a thriving home for dance. Our vision is a world where every body is equally empowered to create, take part in, and enjoy dance in all its forms. Our mission is to make dance happen for every body. Dance that is bold and diverse. Dance that helps us make sense of the world we live in. Dance that makes a difference.
Our Board of Trustees are highly engaged and bring a wide range of expertise. They oversee all aspects of our work, helping to ensure we maintain the highest standards in all areas of our activity and supporting our strategic development.
We are looking for a new Trustee to join the Board and, as part of their governance responsibilities, take on the role of Chair of the Finance and Audit Committee.
We would love to hear from you if you have experience of being a Trustee of a charity, or have a good understanding of the requirements of charity governance. You will be a certified ACCA or CIMA qualified accountant with experience of chairing meetings, preferably but not necessarily, in a governance context.
You will join a welcoming, committed and skilled group of Trustees who champion and advocate for our work locally and regionally, sharing our passion for dance and the contribution it can make to health, wellbeing and placemaking. Trustees make the key strategic decisions and are involved in monitoring South East Dance’s progress, impact, and contribution to Brighton and the South East region, while fulfilling their governance responsibilities. Trustees work to their individual strengths as a collaborative team in the interest of the organisation and contribute to the wider discussion and decision making.
The role of a Trustee in a charity is a voluntary (unpaid) one. Trustees work closely with the Chair of the Board and with the Executive Director and Artistic Director (the executive team) helping them to achieve the strategic aims of South East Dance, and deliver the agreed vision, mission, and strategic objectives.
