Trustee for Finance - The Audience Agency

 

8 days/year – roving location                                                                                 Expenses

 

‘TAA’ is on a mission.  Help to guide a team at the cutting edge of making social enterprise work in the culture sector which is worth £100bn to the UK economy and growing at double its rate.  TAA is the mandatory recipient of audience information from anyone in the sector getting public arts funding.  With this and some super software we are a resource for arts, museum and heritage activities, providing them with intelligence on who their audiences are, who they could be, what makes them tick, and how to reach them.  We have both a national presence and an international influence.  Now, with 50 staff and over £2 million turnover we need to beef up our financial governance.  Go to the TAA website to see our current set-up.

 

This could be the first non-exec post to decorate your CV or the latest to join others.

 

You will need a financial qualification and something legal would help.

You don’t need to be a grad - but you’ll be working with very bright people.

You don’t need to come from the cultural sector - but you’ll be an enthusiast.

 

How you answer these questions will tell you (and us) more:

 

  • Have you experience of social enterprises and the difficulties of making the enterprise commercially successful while still serving its social ends?

     

  • Do you understand the different dynamics of public, private and voluntary sectors?

     

  • Have you had a part in mergers and acquisitions or some equivalent?

     

  • Have you had experience of commercialising assets, particularly knowledge?

     

  • Can you advise and guide fellow directors with diplomacy?

     

  • Have you got an eye for detail as well as a grasp of the big picture?

     

     

    We will want you to tell us stories that show how you’ve done and know these things.
