Our client is the national fundraising charity for art. They believe that art can make you see, think and feel differently, and through their work they help make art more accessible to as many visitors as possible, wherever they are.
Governance Manager Location: King Cross, London, N1C* Salary: circa £37,000 pro rata Contract: 12 month FTC, part time 0.5 FTE
The charity gives grants to help museums and galleries acquire works of art for their collections, share them with wide audiences, and support the training and professional development of curators. They are supported by their growing membership of 159,000 through the National Art Pass, as well as the generosity of many trusts, foundations and other individuals.
Founded in 1903, they are a registered charity governed by a Royal Charter that was granted in 1928. Today, they are governed by a Board of 16 Trustees. As well as its legal responsibilities to ensure the charity is run in accordance with its charitable objects, the Board also considers applications from museums and galleries for grants towards works of art and other activities. Now, following a recent Board review, and with a new Director in post, the charity is at a key moment in its history.
They are seeking a part-time Governance Manager to manage Board and committee meetings and the recruitment of new Trustees, and provide governance support and guidance to the Chair of Trustees, Trustees, Director and senior staff.
Working with our legal advisor and other senior staff, the role will ensure this charity upholds good governance practices and provides all support necessary to Trustees to enable them to discharge their legal responsibilities. A major aspect of the role will be taking a lead on reviewing all the recommendations and implementing agreed changes from the Board review.
This role would suit a dedicated charity professional with experience of governance and working with Boards of Trustees, ideally gained in at least two other settings, who is looking to make a real difference to governance policy and practice within an organisation.
*The role’s location will be the organisation’s King Cross office (Granary Square, London N1C), with all staff currently working remotely, as will the successful candidate initially. However, once the are back in the office, there would be a reasonable expectation to work from the office, as regularly as everyone else.
Closing date: 23rd April 2021
