Job Description

The Trustees of Clean Break theatre company are looking for a woman who shares our values to lead the Board into the next chapter. 40 years ago, Clean Break was founded by two women in prison who believed in the power of theatre to transform lives. Clean Break uses theatre to keep the subject of women in prison on the cultural radar, helping to reveal the damage caused by the failures of the criminal justice system. Through our unique work, we raise difficult questions, inspire debate, and help to effect profound and positive change in the lives of women with experience of the criminal justice system. The Board is currently made up of twelve women with varied professional and personal experience from across theatre and the arts, criminal justice, the women’s sector, financial services and corporate philanthropy. Together the Board ensures the company continues to move in the right direction: sticking to its values and strengthening itself financially. We are seeking a woman with experience of governance and leadership at a senior level, who has a passion for the work of Clean Break which spans theatre, the women’s sector and working with the criminal justice system. Full details, including a job pack, can be found here: To apply, please submit an expression of interest to by Monday 6 April 2020. Interviews will be on Monday 20 April 2020, led by a panel of trustees.
