Job Description

Jacksons Lane is recruiting for a Treasurer

Jacksons Lane is a flagship arts and cultural venue, creating a year-round programme that encompasses the best in contemporary performance, arts participation, cultural education and outreach work for both its community and the sector as a whole. A cultural and creative hub, over 200,000 people use our building every year. Our theatre, offices and studios are housed in a Grade II listed former church, based opposite Highgate tube in North London.

We are seeking a chartered accountant with energy and enthusiasm to join our Board as Treasurer. Candidates from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply. Expected time commitment is to be available for about 6-8 Board meetings a year (evenings 7-9pm), some committee work overseeing finances between meetings. Board trustees are also expected to attend live performances at our theatre across the year to understand – and enjoy! – our artistic offer. 

Since 1975 we have provided an extensive programme of circus, comedy, dance, theatre and performance with associated classes and courses. We are the UK's leading venue and supporter for contemporary circus and an Arts Council National Portfolio Organisation. In addition, we have a large-scale outreach programme for communities across the London Boroughs of Haringey and Barnet, including engagement schemes for children and young people, and initiatives for isolated older people.

We have planned a multi-million pound refurbishment programme to upgrade our facilities and recently announced an innovative plan that would bring Jacksons Lane Arts Centre and Highgate Library together under one roof, hosting new and upgraded library services, and to this aim have applied to Arts Council England for a grant of £2.5 million. We are looking for new trustees to expand our board and provide complementary skills to take us forward.

Next steps

If you are interested in becoming a board member at Jacksons Lane, please send a short email outlining how you meet our criteria, to our Chair, Melian Mansfield, at by 14 January 2019. Please include a phone number and one of our trustees will be in touch for an initial chat.

Jacksons Lane is a registered charity no. 1119318.
