Job Description

Lakeland Arts are looking to appoint a finance trustee / Treasurer who will maintain a strategic overview of Lakeland Arts’ financial affairs. We would particularly welcome expertise in financial vision, strategy, planning and accounting, including understanding of pensions, corporation and other tax matters, and the requirements of public grant funding. You may have had prior experience as a Finance Director in a private, public or voluntary sector organisation, or as an MD or CEO of a successful entrepreneurial company.

You may well have an interest in the arts, tourism or the regional economy and being local to the Cumbria is desirable but not essential. Trustees are accountable for Lakeland Arts’ performance and compliance with statutory and legal responsibilities. 

Based in South Lakeland, in the Lake District UNESCO World Heritage Site, Lakeland Arts is one of the most remarkable arts and heritage organisations in the North. We look after an exceptional portfolio of heritage buildings and collections, located amid magnificent land- and townscapes that have inspired generations, from Wordsworth via Kurt Schwitters to Taylor Swift. This cultural and natural heritage attracts audiences from all over the world.
