Raw Material Music and Media Education
Raw Material’s mission is to improve the lives of young people and their economic position, their opportunities, progression and development, including mental and physical health issues. From our base in Brixton, our charity provides a range of training, mentoring and professional arts projects to develop creative talent, learn music and media skills, build confidence in a working environment and find routes into employment.
We specialize in music, digital media, film and photography, performing arts, national touring and international programmes. We work in mental health in hospitals and the community with children, young people and adults, with CAMHS (Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services), SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities), within youth offending and with children and young people in challenging circumstances.
We are seeking a person to join our board as a Trustee, to ensure we comply with our legal obligations and relevant legislation, to safeguard our financial stability, and to make sure we make proper use of our resources. But more than that, our Trustees actively provide strategic vision and direction for the organisation, setting overall policy and defining goals, helping us achieve our objectives and provide the best care to those we support. As well as performing the statutory duties, you will demonstrate good independent judgement, creative thinking and the willingness to speak your mind. We are particularly looking to strengthen the board with people who have an interest in the Arts sector and who have previous board experience and/or a background in HR, accountancy or marketing. We aim to reflect the communities we work in and are keen to hear from people from a BAME background.
Time Commitment: Approx 8 days per annum including quarterly board meetings in London.
Closing Date: October 18th
