Board recruitment 2020

Forced Entertainment is looking for new trustees to add to the skills and experience of the current Board.

We’re seeking people who are passionate about the arts and the power they have to change lives. Ideally you will know our work and the contemporary theatre sector that the company is part of, however if you haven’t seen our work and are interested in using your skills and experience to support the arts, do get in touch.

With this recruitment we want to increase the diversity of the board: we believe that Forced Entertainment will be a stronger company with the support of a board that values and embodies difference, diversity of background and experience. In light of this, we particularly welcome interest from individuals who are underrepresented in the arts and cultural sector.

We are looking particularly, but not exclusively, for individuals who have expertise in Marketing, Communications and PR; Digital; Finance and HR.

As part of our aim to support emerging practitioners and arts workers develop experience and skills in the sector, we also encourage younger individuals to apply, and can offer support, such as mentoring, to help develop experience in governance.

For the foreseeable future we will be holding all our board activity on Zoom, we are happy to receive expressions of interest for board membership from people further afield from our base in Sheffield..

Closing date for expressions of interest is 5pm on 20th November 2020.
