Opportunity Now Available For New Trustees To Join The Board At York Museums Trust

8 September 2016

Since its formation in 2002 YMT has developed into an innovative, energetic and successful organisation responding creatively and positively to a demanding and fast changing environment.

YMT works closely with partners in York and the wider museums sector. We make a significant contribution to the economic and educational welfare of the City and wider region. YMT is one of 21 museum services in England to receive Major Partner Museums funding from Arts Council England.

On 1 August 2015 YMT launched an award-winning redevelopment of York Art Gallery and Museum Gardens and YMT is increasing the profile of its engaging, exciting exhibitions at all its venues which will attract more visitors, help build income streams and fulfil its long term strategic goals.

The YMT Board led by Professor Sir John Lawton is strong with a broad range of skills and backgrounds. Due to planned retirements, there is a need to recruit new Trustees to join the Board from November 2016.

Applications are particularly welcomed from well-connected individuals experienced in some or all of the following sectors: museums (especially collections management and capital projects), finance, digital, fundraising, diversity, and community development / education.

Whatever your background, you will have experience of working at a senior level in organisations undergoing change and have an interest in our core areas of activity.

Interviews will take place between 24 October and 4 November 2016 with the appointment effective from the AGM in November 2016.
