The Liverpool Irish Festival (LIF) delivers a diverse, high quality and often ground breaking programme each October. LIF is a charitable company, whose Directors are its Trustees. These volunteers come together as a Board to lead the charity and decide how it is run. The current Board aims to recruit skilled, experienced and enthusiastic individuals to come join the current Trustees to guide and support the organisation through its next exciting phase of development.
Trustees will have strategic vision, independent judgement and a willingness to give time and commitment to the Liverpool Irish Festival. The Festival’s aim is to develop a diverse Board, so applications are welcomed from all sections of the community, in particular women and young people, who are recognise are currently under-represented on the Board and from whom we encourage applications. Ideally, new trustees will have experience of the cultural sector, a familiarity with Liverpool Irish arts and culture and/or skills in digital applications.
The Trustee role is unpaid and requires a time commitment of, on average, half a day per month. This includes attendance at the Board and sub-committee meetings, Board development workshops and strategic planning events. The meetings generally take place in the early evening.
Applications to become a member of the Liverpool Irish Festival Board should be made by submission of your CV and a one-page letter describing how you meet the criteria, via email to firstname.lastname@example.org .
